Useful information

Explore the iceberg cathedrals of the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Ilulissat Icefjord on this small, open boat tour with a maximum of 4 passengers.

To really get a feel for the enormous size of the icebergs in Ilulissat, you must see them from the water.

On this excursion, we will sail to the most impressive locations amongst the current towers of ice that have become stuck on the underwater bank at the mouth of the Icefjord. With only 4 passengers, we may have the opportunity to customise the tour a little depending on interest, and while the captain (a local of Ilulissat) will talk about everyday life in Ilulissat and his experiences over the years, there is plenty of opportunity to ask him further questions about anything to do with Greenland.  

The icebergs themselves present entirely different shapes and colours as we change the angle at which at which we are viewing them during our trip. They also look completely different depending on the weather and time of day, so you may even be tempted to do this tour more than once. Certainly the locals never tire of the view!

    I had an amazing time on my day tour to the Eqi glacier!
    The boat was comfortable and the food they served was simply outstanding. I loved the danish fish and remolade sauce and even asked the guide to write the names down so I can have it again in the future.
    The day trip was about 9 hours and we spent 2 hours in front of the glacier, so we could enjoy it a lot!
    It was a beautiful sunny day and we could see and hear the glacier calving… what an experience!
    I totally recommend this tour and guide to Greenland to anyone coming to Greenland!

    Guide was excellent and was a former government minister …..who knew his stuff.

    We had a great excursion and got very close to some great edifices…

    Just the 2 of us so it was very comfortable.

    Thoroughly recommended

    This tour was the highlight of our Ilulissat vacation. Karl our guide met us at the harbor and provided flotation suits for safety and warmth before taking us on a beautiful tour of the icefjord. Karl grew up in Ilulissat and still lives there which means he has far more knowledge of life there than the Danish guides many tour companies bring in. He is easily able to navigate the fjord, identify whales at a glance, and find seals from a far. The experience can’t be beat by other companies plus the flexibility of selecting our our tour time was outstanding.
