Description

Explore the towering cathedrals of ice for which Ilulissat is famous on this boat trip amongst the icebergs.

The enormous icebergs of the Ilulissat Icefjord are impressive no matter which way you experience them. Some of their peaks stand more than 100m above the level of the water (remember this is only 7-10% of the total size!), but it is only by looking up at these skyscrapers of ice from the perspective of a boat that you get a true sense of their massive scale.

On this tour we will sail slowly across the mouth of the Ilulissat Icefjord, exploring the fantastic shapes and structures of the ice. They are beautiful in every kind of weather (shades of blue and green on overcast days and brilliant white under the daytime Sun), and are simply magical when silhouetted against the brilliant colors of Arctic sunsets. Don’t be worried about booking a late-night sail – there will still be plenty of light and it is perhaps the best time of all for those who are keen photographers.

We encourage you to dress as warmly as possible for the tour as you will want to spend most of your time out on deck. The very best views are to be had from here. That being said, if you do get cold and need to take a break, our heated cabin is available at any time and we provide hot tea and coffee during the excursion.

    Amazing!
    A photographer’s dream. A spectacular show of light and colours as the sunset changes the colours of the icebergs. We luckily spotted whales as a bonus also. You can’t miss this tour.

    I had this marvelous trip during the winter time and the views were stunning! The boat had to break the ice next to the harbor, so we could go sailing among the icebergs, it was a fabulous experience having these giants next to us. And it is wonderful that this tour is available all year around!

  • Transfer to and from the boat dock from town
  • 2.5 hours sailing time
  • Information about icebergs and the Ilulissat Icefjord from your guide

What to bring

  • Layered clothing. Ideally, you should pack a thermal underwear layer (top and bottom), activity layer (e.g. hiking pants and shirt), insulation layer (e.g. fleece or down jacket), and outer layer of windproof clothing (top and bottom). For winter, your outer layer must be proper winter gear which typically has lots of insulation and is windproof. Think ski jacket and pants if you come from a warmer climate. You may not need all of this on any particular day, but you should have it available. You should always bring a windproof jacket, regardless of the weather.
  • Warm hat, gloves, buff or scarf
  • Sturdy shoes (e.g. hiking boots in Summer, insulated boots in Winter)
  • Sunglasses, sunscreen & sun hat (depending on weather)
  • Head net and insect repellent (in case of mosquitoes)
