The Fjord of Glaciers | Tasiilaq | East Greenland

The Fjord of Glaciers | Tasiilaq | East Greenland

Hop on this helicopter flightseeing tour venturing deep into the Sermilik Fjord and experience one of the fjords majestic glaciers! This adventure is for anyone who would like to combine sightseeing, the thrills of flying and extraordinary views of glaciers and icebergs.  

Due to the fjords many glaciers, the fjord was named Sermilik, which means ‘The place with glaciers’. In the fjord, you will be able to see the Helheim Glacier, Fenris Glacier and the Midgard Glacier. The glaciers have been frozen for over 3 million years.

Your adventure begins in Tasiilaq heliport, where you will be seated in the helicopter by the experienced Air Greenland pilot. Before takeoff, the pilot will brief you on the security protocols that apply flightseeing adventures and an orientation of the highlights of this tour will take place.

We will be setting the course towards the Sermilik Fjord, northeast of Tasiilaq. As we venture into the fjord, gaze down on the crystal blue ice azures originating from the many glaciers that reside the fjord. The white and blue nuanced icebergs create beautiful contrasts to the dark blue ocean.

The highlight of the tour will take place on the mainland of Greenland. The pilot will be landing the helicopter near one of the glacier walls, where you and your fellow explorers can experience the majestic glacier wall and the beautiful sight of the glacier rising high above in the backland.  Allow yourself to get lost in the Greenlandic beauty, as you listen to the soaring glaciers retracting. Due to the rising temperatures the glaciers are melting, and therefore produce tons of icebergs. The icebergs create a scenic and picturesque landscape, that can only be found in Greenland. 

Do not hesitate to book this tour, as this is a great chance to create memories of a lifetime. Bring a warm hat and your camera! Check the booking availability by pressing ‘Choose a date’ above.
