  1. Experience the explosion of autumn colours across the Greenlandic tundra, a great time for trekking
  2. With the sun now lower in the sky, soft light and dramatic sunsets make September a great month for photography
  3. The recession of pack ice north allows a short window of opportunity to explore East Greenland’s Scoresby Sund
  4. From mid month the day’s start to shorten, temperatures drop and the first new snow begins to appear
  5. The return of the polar night provides great opportunities to experience the Aurora Borealis
