Experience a truly unique place in Greenland. In the fjord north of Ilulissat you will be facing a huge wall of ice - welcome to the Eqi Glacier. This is a very active glacier - the most calving in the northern hemisphere.

Eqi is known as "The calving glacier", which means that you on your tour will have a chance to experience chunks of ice falling off the ice-wall with the sound of an explosion. The visit to the glacier itself is the highlight of the tour, but sailing along the coastline is a wonderful experience in itself. You will be sailing past the settlement Oqaatsut, Bredebugten bay and the huge fjordsystem of Pakitsoq, which is home to a lot of sea mammals, such as whales and seals. The tour will continue up the Ataa Strait with its tall mountains and finally end up in front of the Eqi Glacier. We will spend two hours in front of the great glacier wall, which will give you plenty of time to take pictures and hopefully experience the glacier calving. While we are here we will enjoy a good lunch along with the view. 

We will sail on a bigger boat with a cabin, so you have the chance to both stay outside and go inside.
