This relatively small island offers some of the world’s most amazing landscapes, thanks to it’s extreme latitude and unique geography. Excellent tourism infrastructure ensures amazingly easy access, which is a key part of it’s title as the world’s most popular landscape photo destination.
Expect to find frozen waterfalls, lagoons and beaches strewn with icebergs, glaciers, glacier caves and so much more, all within easy walking distance of a parking lot. As if that isn’t good enough, things are made even better by winter light; during our visit, the sun will rise around 10:30am and set again around 5pm. Colourful skies at the start and end of day seem eternal and in between the sun never rises very high, providing soft warm light during the day. The cherry on the cake is the opportunity to witness and photograph the Northern lights. Long winter nights and an extreme Northern latitude ensure optimal opportunities, but it can not be guaranteed.
