Come along and experience a world of ice hidden from the bare eye. You will not only hike on a glacier, but have a chance to see the glacier from the inside - like being inside a huge turquise diamond, where the you can see the light play.

This tour starts from the harbour in Tasiilaq (or from Kulusuk on request). From the harbour you will sail out through the fjord with the beautiful landscape of towering mountains surrounding you. Getting to the destination will take around 40 minutes, where you can be lucky to experience life in the ocean, as humpback whales, fin whales, orcas and seals not are strangers in these areas. 

When reaching the destination you will get on shore and geared up with all the safety equipment you will need for the tour. Do not worry if this is you are a first time ice hiker. Through the whole tour you will be accompanied by a professional guide, who will show you how to safely do the activity.

First you will walk on the glacier surface, seeing the structure of the ice and learn how the is moving. After a while you will reach a big ice cave, that you have the chance to get into - and get under the glacier. 

Inside the cave you can see the structures of the thousands years old ice. You will have enough time inside the cave to admire how the light is beautifully reflected through the thick layer of blue and turquise ice. The experience is ever changing and will never be the same, as the ice all the time is moving, melting and freezing. After a while in the ice cave it is time to get back to town.

On the way back there are again plenty of opportunities to see huge icebergs and spot wildlife.
