Experience the amazing Eqi glacier throwing tonnes of huge icebergs into the ocean for a little longer than on a normal tour.

Sailing with Ilulissat Water Taxi is a nice and easy way to get to some of the top attractions around the amazing Icefjord. You book the trip and Ilulissat Water Taxi will pick you up on one the southern or northers side of the harbor - just like a Yellow Cab.

Let Ilulissat Water Taxi take you on a once in a lifetime adventure. Eqi is located around 80 kilometers north of Ilulissat. We will sail north from the city through the beautiful Ataa fjord. Here you will see the picturesque snow covered mountaintops stand tall along the fjord - a sight in itself. When we round the last headland the magnificent Eqi glacier appears. The glacier front stretches over 4 kilometers! An overwhelming sight that truly shows the grandeur of the Greenlandic nature.

We will sail as close as possible to the glacier, but always keep a safe distance. Eqi is one of the few places where the conditions allow us to get quite close to a calving glacier. From here you will hear the cracking noises from the small bubbles of air inside the ice, that eventually will create a huge explosion and launch a new iceberg. The fjord is an ever flowing stream of icebergs in all shapes and sizes. Here they start their journey to the open ocean.

Many travelers mark this as the highlight from a trip to Greenland - a true must see!

It takes round two hours to sail to the Eqi glacier from the city, we might catch a glimpse of a whale when sailing in this area. Then we have some hours around the glacier, to sail around and get the view from different perspectives before sailing back.
