Portfolio

Are you curious to see images from the various parts of the circumpolar world we have been fortunate enough to explore?

We hope that the selection of images you will find in our portfolio will inspire you enough that you will want to discover some of these places for yourself, that you will want to learn more about the polar regions’ natural world and—most importantly—that you will feel like taking opportunities to meet the people and get acquainted with their culture.

  • In July 2009, a cruise along the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador was our introduction to Nunatsiavut («Our beautiful land»), the land of the Inuit of Labrador.

  • In this gallery, you will find a sample of the images we brought back from two stays in Nunavut, the largest and the most recent Canadian territory which occupies a territory as large as Western Europe. Created on April 1, 1999, Nunavut is an Inuktitut term which means “Our land”.

  • Nunavik (meaning «the place where to live») occupies the part of the Quebec territory lying north of the 55th parallel. The 11 000 inhabitants are dispersed in 15 coastal villages which do not have any road link between them. In 2009, we had the opportunity to visit Kuujjuaq, Nunavik's administrative center.

  • The northern part of the Canadian province of Manitoba is home to the southernmost population of polar bears. Every fall the migration of the polar bears attracts thousands of tourists to the town of Churchill.

  • Svalbard is an archipelago located in the Arctic Ocean halfway between the northern tip of Norway and the North Pole. The archipelago is located between the 74th and the 81th parallels north. A country of mountains and glaciers, Svalbard was the starting point for several polar explorers and adventurers.

  • Following our very first trip to the Canadian High Arctic in 2005, we were anxious to return above the Arctic circle. The following summer, we headed to the northern part of Norway.

  • The Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador is such a fascinating destination.
