Ruled by the ice and the sea. Step into the world seemingly unaffected by the passage of time. Safely nestled in the shadow of one of the world's biggest glaciers, Disko Bay offers a truly unparalleled experience. The Red Sails tour takes you into the very heart of the realm of majestic icebergs, sailing amongst the whales under the dreamlike glow of the midnight sun. Dare to touch the unknown and make unique memories that will last you a lifetime!

DAY 1 (Arrival)

We recommend you the flight which arrives around 13:00 to Ilulissat. Please check AirGreenland for available tickets. Flights via Copenhagen are usually with one change at Kangerlussuaq. If you fly from North America you can take Air Iceland flights.
They have regular direct flights from Reykjavik Domestic airport.
It might be amazing idea to combine Greenland + Iceland summer trips together with stopover in Iceland! The arrival time to Ilulissat is flexible but make sure it’s before 5 p.m.! Our Arctic hotel provides airport shuttle – you will need to tell us your inbound flight.

After the dinner we load to our vessel and depart to the Icefjord. You meet with greatest icebergs in the world tonight! The magic light usually lasts around 2-3 hours. Sun slightly touches horizon, giving incredible colors, and roll on distant mountains. All these 3 magic hours we photograph icebergs , cruising around the fjord. Our trip is constructed for photographers, unlike touristic cruises you may book on solo trip to Ilulissat.

We finish the cruise around 2-3 a.m. in the night. We have a spare time until breakfast. If you feel you can endure some more, you are welcome to walk around the Ilulissat after the breakfast, observing how the settlement wakes up and starts its normal everyday life.

DAY 2

it’s worth planning our nights instead of days as we will have a lazy afternoon after the breakfast and processing/photography instructions during the daytime when the light is harsh. After the dinner we sail again through the icefjord. Today we start earlier, as we want to take you to small settlements south from Icefjord Kangia, to Qasigiannguit and/or Ilimanaq. Our final choice will depend on ice conditions. Both settlements have beautiful colorful old buildings dating from the colonial time. On the way back we photograph icebergs of Icefjord, and open-water icebergs. Some of them may look like castles! Arches, mountain shapes, towers – it’s even hard to imagine these masterpieces the nature creates! village.

DAY 3

Following the breakfast we’ll have some sleep and after lunch we load to our boat to travel to Oqaatsut or Rodebay, a small settlement located to the north from Ilulissat. Here we have a little excursion through the village with just 45 inhabitants. Although they have a church, shop, school and church!
We have dinner at the settlement in the “whalehunter’s pub”, the small local restaurant H8. We may also go for lunch instead dinner to H8, depending on their weekly schedule. After the lunch or dinner we head back to Ilulissat and hike in the night to Sermermiut settlement and Sermeq Kujalleq glacier, the birthplace of amazing Disko bay icebergs. We begin at the old part of Ilulissat at the outskirts of the town, past Seqinniarfik, the hilltop where local people meet first rays of sun on January, 13. The path is very simple, in most places made with wooden paving.

This is a pleasant 1 hour hike (each way) on a great path, suitable for all levels of activity. We have many stops on the way, enjoying the midnight sun and looking for wildlife. In the night we spend at least 2 hours taking photos of beautiful Icefjord. It is possible to take long exposures and take photos with tripod tonight.

DAY 4

We finish our hike late in the night again, so our comfortable bed in 4* hotel waits for us!

During the daytime we have post-processing lessons. We never give up on our active nightlife, so we start our midnight sun sailing approximately at 23:00. We sail around Icefjord in search of best compositions and light. Icefjord is included in UNESCO world heritage, so it’s worth visiting multiple times! We return back to hotel late in the night.

DAY 5

After the breakfast we have discussions and critique session. By that day you’ll definitely have a large luggage of photos needed to be arranged and criticized. You will always have 2 professional award-winning photographers “at hand” during the tour. In the night we sail again through Icefjord and Disko bay.

Greenland

Greenland is the birthplace of the most incredible icebergs in the world. Wild nature, limited amount of tourists, colorful and friendly local villages… Greenland is absolute must-see at least once in a lifetime! If you ask us what is the best time to go, we’ll definitely answer: the second half of July! This time of the year the sun just slightly touches horizon, giving incredible opportunity to photograph all the night long! Imagine infinite sunset slowly going into sunrise during the midnight sun period!

The Disko Bay is located on the West coast of Greenland, north of the Arctic Circle. It’s a pure Arcic, and not only because of the biggest icebergs in the world, but also because of the wildlife (arctic foxes, musc ox, humpback whales…)

Our base will be located in Ilulissat, the capital of the Disko Bay Ice Kingdom. You will be accommodated at the wonderful hotel in Greenland all the tour! You’ll have a proper rest, and you will be able to taste amazing food of Greenland in the best restaurants. Ilulissat is a nice local town with colorful houses, dog sledges around and very friendly people. In Ilulissat you can find museums, restaurants, nice hikes, fish markets, souvenir shops and many optional activities. Ilulissat is situated next to beautiful icefiord. Sermeq Kujalleq glacier is the place where the most giant icebergs in the world are born. Imagine that the glacier advances for 20 meters per day! Ice production of the glacier is around 46 cubic kilometers per year ( it is equivalent to U.S. annual water consumption). Word “Ilulissat” means icebergs, that’s explains the thing.

The sea is the only one road that connects Greenlandic villages. There are no highways or roads between settlements. That’s why we charter our private boat for the whole period of our journey.
We will primarily work together in the night, taking photos from the boat. We will cruise among huge icebergs at Icefjord, scout for best compositions, and reach distant icebergs.

We also visit Greenlandic settlements like Qasigiannguit, Aasiaat, Oqaatsut.
On the way to these settlements we also hunt for huge icebergs, as you may find “Iceberg-skyscraper” only in the open sea, where it rotates and polishes by sun. Disko bay is well-known area where humpback whales and seals are feeding. Whale watching is essential during our adventure!

Since the dates of our tour fall on the most amazing light at Disko bay, our itinerary will be based on photography during the night period. We start late at the evening and continue through the night, chasing the best available light. It will help us to get dramatic and colorful photos of ice and fire. Usually colors are very saturated in the night, from deep blue ice to flaming red and pink color in the sky. The magic light lasts from 2 to 4 hours long, so our night boat cruises will last around 3-5 hours long. A great way to chill down in the middle of summer, isn’t it.
The tour is suitable for any level of activities. Our captain works with photographers for a long time, and knows where to slow down or stop. Usually there are no ways in the Icefjord, as ice blocks ripples and waves. So you might be able to see amazing reflections! Please note that the itinerary proposed may subject to the weather conditions, but we aim to get you to the best locations and help you to get brilliant photos. 6 days in Arctic and 5 beautiful nights wait for you!

  • Comfortable 4 star hotel accommodation (twin/double rooms)

Where stunning nature meets long-standing heritage. Slovenia and Croatia, both lands of churches, rivers, lakes and mountains, are sure to provide a truly breathtaking display of sights and colours that can only be described as dreamlike. Meandering streams, turquoise rivers and snow-capped mountain tops make this tour a once-in-a-lifetime experience for those who long to embrace true natural beauty. Exploring the delicate interplay between the silent power of water, unyielding rock and the rich and vibrant colours of foliage will make these precious moments seem like a lifetime!

DAY 1 (Oct 11): Arrive at Lake Bled

On the first day of our Slovenia photography tour, the group will meet at the airport of Ljubljana at 2 p.m. If you arrive earlier or a day before we can also meet at the lobby of our hotel at lake Bled at 2:45-3 p.m. upon check in. We don’t want to waste any time, so we will immediately head north towards one of the country’s most iconic sights, Lake Bled. The emerald lake is arguably Slovenia’s most popular tourist spot, and after a few minutes, walking around you’ll quickly understand why. The water shines with dazzling green and blue tones, a charming church rests on a tiny island in the centre, and the imposing peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke offer the perfect backdrop for photography shoots.

Luka Vunduk Photography tour Spomeniks 2025

Spomeniks

Read more

Read more

A different kind of tour. It offers awe-inspiring photographic opportunities, full immersion in local life and the world-renowned local cuisine. Spomeniks, symbols of victory and unity, are futuristic monuments of unimaginable proportions, strewn across the Balkan countryside. Erected in the post-WW2 era, they were designed by only the top architects, designers and artists. This unique tour offers an insight into the stark contrast between the towering sculptures commemorating heroism and sacrifice and the warmth and friendliness of the local people who are best known for their hospitality.

Our photo tour will traverse the stark ridges of concrete and steel, exploring how these monuments interact with the land and the skies—giants rooted in the earth, yet untethered from their original purpose. Through the lens of two extraordinary mentors, Canon Ambassador Luka Vunduk and National Geographic photographer Matjaz Krivic (both born in Yugoslavia) we will delve into the heart of brutalism creating friendly and truly unique photo and cultural experience that you will never forget.

These structures, often situated in remote and challenging landscapes, aimed to reflect the ideals of the emerging nation.

The Spomeniks, a term which translates to “monuments” in English, became the most iconic expression of Yugoslav brutalist architecture. These abstract and avant-garde structures were designed by prominent architects like Vojin Bakić, Dušan Džamonja, and Bogdan Bogdanović. Each Spomenik featured a unique design that aimed to capture the essence of the event it commemorated. The Memorial to the Revolution in Podgarić, Croatia, for instance, takes the form of an abstract representation of Partisan fighters rising from the ground, symbolizing the rebirth of the nation through their sacrifices.

Itinerary:

  1. Zagreb – Podgarić – Jasenovac – Kozara
  2. Kozara – Bravsko – Smrike – Travnik
  3. Travnik – Tjentište/Foča
  4. Foča – Kadinjača – Užice

And last but most certainly not least: when we travel from one monument to another, there will be the wonderfully stunning Balkans with their fantastic cuisine, remote villages, wonderful valleys, gorgeous canyons, laid-back towns, greenish rivers, Bosnian coffee in a džezva, hospitable people who will very often open their hearts to you.

Embarking on a journey through the enchanting lands of the Balkans with the three of us is not merely a venture; it’s an odyssey infused with cultural richness, historical depth, and a tapestry of languages woven seamlessly across diverse landscapes.

Our linguistic prowess stands as a beacon, illuminating the path to authentic experiences. With fluency in the myriad tongues that echo through Balkan valleys, we transcend mere tourists, seamlessly integrating into the fabric of local life. Whether bargaining in the bustling bazaars of Sarajevo or conversing with villagers in the tranquil highlands of Montenegro, our linguistic dexterity serves as a bridge, fostering connections that transcend borders.

Yet, our affinity with the Balkans extends beyond language; it’s deeply rooted in our shared heritage. Born in ex-Yugoslavia, we carry within us the echoes of its tumultuous past and the resilience of its people. Our understanding of its nuances and intricacies grants us unparalleled insight, allowing us to navigate its labyrinthine streets with the confidence of seasoned explorers.

Moreover, our extensive experience as travelers imbues us with a discerning eye for the extraordinary.

Crucially, our network of friendships woven across the Balkans serves as a testament to the bonds that unite us. In every town and village, we are greeted not as strangers, but as kinfolk returning home.

In essence, traveling with the three of us to the Balkans is not merely a sojourn; it’s a transformative experience that transcends the boundaries of time and space. Guided by our linguistic fluency, cultural affinity, and boundless curiosity, we embark on a voyage of discovery, weaving together the threads of history, heritage, and friendship that define this enchanting region. Together, we write a new chapter in the timeless saga of the Balkans, forging memories that will linger in our hearts long after the journey’s end.

A different kind of tour. It offers awe-inspiring photographic opportunities, full immersion in local life and the world-renowned local cuisine. Spomeniks, symbols of victory and unity, are futuristic monuments of unimaginable proportions, strewn across the Balkan countryside. Erected in the post-WW2 era, they were designed by only the top architects, designers and artists. This unique tour offers an insight into the stark contrast between the towering sculptures commemorating heroism and sacrifice and the warmth and friendliness of the local people who are best known for their hospitality.

Our photo tour will traverse the stark ridges of concrete and steel, exploring how these monuments interact with the land and the skies—giants rooted in the earth, yet untethered from their original purpose. Through the lens of two extraordinary mentors, Canon Ambassador Luka Vunduk and National Geographic photographer Matjaz Krivic (both born in Yugoslavia) we will delve into the heart of brutalism creating friendly and truly unique photo and cultural experience that you will never forget.

These structures, often situated in remote and challenging landscapes, aimed to reflect the ideals of the emerging nation.

The Spomeniks, a term which translates to “monuments” in English, became the most iconic expression of Yugoslav brutalist architecture. These abstract and avant-garde structures were designed by prominent architects like Vojin Bakić, Dušan Džamonja, and Bogdan Bogdanović. Each Spomenik featured a unique design that aimed to capture the essence of the event it commemorated. The Memorial to the Revolution in Podgarić, Croatia, for instance, takes the form of an abstract representation of Partisan fighters rising from the ground, symbolizing the rebirth of the nation through their sacrifices.

Itinerary:

  1. Zagreb – Podgarić – Jasenovac – Kozara
  2. Kozara – Bravsko – Smrike – Travnik
  3. Travnik – Tjentište/Foča
  4. Foča – Kadinjača – Užice

Autumn Colours

Where stunning nature meets long-standing heritage. Slovenia and Croatia, both lands of churches, rivers, lakes and mountains, are sure to provide a truly breathtaking display of sights and colours that can only be described as dreamlike. Meandering streams, turquoise rivers and snow-capped mountain tops make this tour a once-in-a-lifetime experience for those who long to embrace true natural beauty. Exploring the delicate interplay between the silent power of water, unyielding rock and the rich and vibrant colours of foliage will make these precious moments seem like a lifetime!

DAY 1 (Oct 11): Arrive at Lake Bled

On the first day of our Slovenia photography tour, the group will meet at the airport of Ljubljana at 2 p.m. If you arrive earlier or a day before we can also meet at the lobby of our hotel at lake Bled at 2:45-3 p.m. upon check in. We don’t want to waste any time, so we will immediately head north towards one of the country’s most iconic sights, Lake Bled. The emerald lake is arguably Slovenia’s most popular tourist spot, and after a few minutes, walking around you’ll quickly understand why. The water shines with dazzling green and blue tones, a charming church rests on a tiny island in the centre, and the imposing peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke offer the perfect backdrop for photography shoots.

We are sure that it will be a magnificent start to our six-day adventure. In the evening we will gather together for food, spend some time getting to know each other and discuss the trip to come.

DAYS 2-5: Lake Bled and Julian Alps

Over the next 4 days during this photography tour, we will be exploring the Gorenjska region, including the area close to Lake Bled and the nearby Julian Alps. There will be sunrise shoots on the shores of lake Bled, a trip up to the castle that overlooks the water, and plenty of time spent shooting the spectacular church in the middle of the lake.

We will also spend time at one of Slovenia’s hidden gems, the Vintgar Gorge. This 1.6km trench cuts through the Hom and Bort hills, and there are is a variety of waterfalls, rivers, and rapids to capture with our cameras. We will certainly make time for some long exposure shots.

We will also spend some time exploring the local culture through our lenses. There are plenty of charming villages close to the lake, where we will capture traditional agricultural architecture and the famous hayracks of Slovenia. Rural village life offers a wonderful contrast to the epic natural scenes that will dominate our sunset shoots.

True gems of Slovenia are amazing churches! We photograph iconic Jamnik and St Tomaz churches, St John at Bohinj lake – with stunning mountains backdrop.

DAY 5

Today we are enjoying our final sunrise at lake Bled – and moving forward to Plitvice lakes national park. It is a dream destination for many photographers. You can capture hundreds of cascades and waterfalls framed by autumn foliage. With turquoise waters beneath and gentle autumn light your photos will look like medieval paintings.

DAY 6

We spend one full day at Plitvice NP exploring and enjoying autumn splendour.

DAY 7 (Oct 17)

Departure day. We will photograph our final sunrise at the park – and head to Zagreb international airport. We plan to be at the airport around 12 to 1 p.m. So please feel free to book your flights after 3 p.m.
