Useful information

Explore the great Greenland Ice Sheet on a full-day mini-expedition from Kangerlussuaq.

Travel in comfort in our specially adapted 4WD vehicle, as we transport you through the Arctic tundra to Point 660. Keep an eye out of the panoramic windows for musk oxen, reindeer, arctic hares, and polar foxes as we drive for an hour along Greenland’s longest road to reach the inland ice.

Once we arrive, your guide will provide you with crampons and hiking poles and explain how to use them correctly. They will go over the safety rules for the excursion and then lead you up onto the ice.

It won’t take long for you to get the hang of the unusual experience of walking on a glacier, and your guide will explain the features of this icy, Arctic desert as you hike past brilliant blue meltwater streams, waterfalls, lakes and crevasses - all at a safe distance.  You’ll spend several hours exploring and hiking across the undulating surface of the ice, and even have lunch in this exotic landscape. Drinking water comes directly from the glacier!

To go hiking on the world’s second-largest icefield, you do not need to have any special skills or experience. Just the ability to hike for ~4 hours and an enthusiasm for adventure.  Reserve your place by selecting your travel date and clicking on Book Now.

    Very good trip! The full day adventure is more value for money than the ordinary trip to the inland ice and Point 66 as you actually spend 3 – 4 hours on the inland ice walking around in crampons which is an experience of itself if you have never used crampons before:) Excellent weather when we did the tour and very good sandwich for lunch included in the price!
