ICE FJORD PHOTO SIGHTSEEING BY AIR - $320

THE CALVING GLACIER EQI | 6-7 HOURS - $500
We cruise in front of the 5-km wide glacier for approx. one hour and hope for the unique sight of an iceberg “delivery”. The Eqi Glacier is very active and there will be many photo opportunities. This area is also excellent for spotting whales and hopefully the gentle giants of the sea will put in an appearance. Lunch or dinner included. 

Itinerary:

Ilulissat is Greenlandic for ‘Icebergs’, and this charming town with 4600 inhabitants 200 kilometres north of the Polar Circle is indeed one of the best places in the world for seeing gigantic, nature-made sculptures break off rugged glaciers and start their final journey towards the open sea.

Summer in Ilulissat is a feast of adventures; make the most of your time there by going on hikes in the Arctic nature not far from town, experience helicopter safaris over the UNESCO designated ice fjord and sail out to remote settlements where everyday life still is heavily influenced by ancient traditions. Relax in the evenings on Midnight Sun Cruises in the fjord, watching the icebergs bathing in the rays of the never-setting sun, whilst enjoying a drink ‘on the real rocks’.

Even a short stay in Ilulissat offers plenty of opportunity to explore the Arctic country side, learn about ancient Inuit traditions and – of course – marvel at the icebergs by the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord.
