Fly over some of the amazing glaciers and icebergs around one of Greenland's top destinations - Ilulissat Icefjord, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004. Join this one-hour long flight to experience Greenland from a whole new perspective.

The flight starts from Ilulissat Airport. The pilot will provide you with a safety briefing and orient you about the planned route and flight conditions. On the way to the plane, the pilot seats the participants. You might be seated in the front with the pilot, or at the back together with your fellow explorers. Regardless of where you are seated, there is a guarantee of great views from the large windows in the plane. Onboard the pilot goes through the safety instructions and asks you to take on your headset, through which you can communicate.

Immediately after take-off, you will see Greenland from one of the very best angles. You will now be heading for the spectacular Isua Glacier. Within 10 minutes you will be able to see the moraine edge of Kangia, where a mixture of rocks and ice is pushed forward by the force of the glacier.

Before long you will experience the glory of Ilulissat Icefjord. You will experience the endless flow of icebergs in all shapes and sizes - quietly drifting through the fjord on their journey to the sea. Some of the icebergs can reach a height of 100 meters over sea level.

When flying over the giant icebergs you will get close to them in a different way and sometimes see azure blue lakes with melted water on the icebergs. To see the icebergs and edges of glaciers from above is a lifetime experience that you should not miss. You might also be lucky to spot a whale or other Arctic wildlife while flying around the area.

The minimum number of people to do this tour is 4 but we will try our best to find a way and to find more people so you can go on the tour. Because of that and the weather, your tour can be moved to another time (if you agree). You can still go on the tour but you will need to pay for 4 seats. The final decision will be made close to departure time.

Do not hesitate to book this trip to one of Greenland's top destinations. You can check the booking availability by pressing "Book Now" above.
