Get to the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat. This opens up a world that you cannot reach in any other way. It is not possible to get this close to the gigantic glacier by foot or boat, but with the helicopter we can fly in and land on land by the glacier.

We meet up at Kussangajaannguaq 7 where transfer to the airport is waiting for you. We also have a presentation about the ice and glacier before departure. At the airport we meet up with the helicopter crew who before departure will give a safety briefing. We are now ready for take-off. From the airport we fly as low as possible over the hills, lakes and the Icefjord landing on ground next to the glacier.

The Ilulissat glacier is the most productive in the northern hemisphere. Be ready for a sight that you will not forget as the white landscape will open up. This glacier is seven kilometers wide and more than one kilometer steep. It moves around 50 meters everyday and produces 43 million tonnes of ice daily. This truly makes you experience the amazing force of the nature. The ground stop on this preserved area will be for around 30 minutes, so you can go out and experience the wonderful surroundings and take some unique picture to bring back home.

On the way back to the city we fly above the edge of the glacier and close over the Icefjord, so you can get a good areal view. You will see from where the calving glacier sends out the icebergs on their journey to the big sea. In the Icefjord there is a constant flow of icebergs in all shapes and sizes slowly drifting by. Always remember to keep your eyes open, as you might also lucky to spot a whale or other Arctic wildlife while flying around the area.

To see all this by helicopter is a lifetime experience, that you should not miss when traveling in Ilulissat. Do not hesitate to book this trip in one of Greenlands top destinations. You can check the booking availability by pressing "Choose a date" above.
