Discover the incredible beauty of Disko Bay by joining this 2-day hiking program from Ilulissat. Wind your way through the tundra lands of Disko Bay, discover the incredible coastal scenery and explore the settlement of Oqaatsut.  There is no better way to explore Greenlandic nature than by hiking.

Day 1

On this tour, you will be taken care of from beginning to end, starting with pickup from Hotel Hvide Falk. From there, the tour takes you 45 minutes by boat north of Ilulissat for drop off on the northeastern shores of Disko Bay.

In the company of an educated guide, you set out on a 5-hour hike towards the settlement of Oqaatsut. At this point, you have escaped all signs of civilization, allowing you to immerse yourself in Greenlandic nature. In the Oqaatsut backcountry, you can enjoy astonishing views in every direction. We will be hiking through a landscape of small lakes and a large waterfall, tumbling down the side of a small mountain range.

Arriving in Oqaatsut, we check you in to your accommodation, for your overnight stay.  Oqaatsut is a small fishing community, consisting of approximately 30 inhabitants and packs of sled dogs. In addition to its cultural heritage, Oqaatsut is also known for its spectacular beauty. The village of colourful wooden houses is scattered across a rocky peninsula, overlooking the iceberg rich waters of Disko Bay.

Day 2

The second part of this multiday tour takes you on a full-day hike back to Ilulissat. 21 kilometres to be exact. You will be following an old trail, that was once used for the transport of mail from town to village. While hiking, you are sure to enjoy jaw-dropping sceneries of icebergs, tundra, lakes, rivers and tiny wooden huts. A beautiful trek into the wild.

This two-day hike lets you hike with ease. All transfer to and from the departure point is taken care of, as well as overnight accommodation and all meals during the trip.
