Ilimanaq Settlement Visit | Private tour | Ilulissat | Disko Bay
Join this private adventure (you charter the whole boat) to the other side of the Ilulissat Icefjord, where you will explore the cozy settlement Ilimanaq.
You will head out from Ilulissat harbour towards the amazing Ilulissat Icefjord, which since 2004 has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sailing across the fjord will take around 45 minutes, depending on the ice. Here you can watch the beautiful icebergs silently floating to the sea. The icebergs can be as big as little islands and some are more like beautiful icy sculptures in shades of blue and white.
When you get past the icefjord you will find Ilimanaq laying there in peace with its colourful houses. When you get ashore the captain will take you a guided tour and introduce you to the daily life and history of the small settlement, all while you still will see the icebergs drift by.
Take the opportunity to visit a small Greenlandic settlement, where you can learn about the culture and observe daily life by selecting your preferred date and clicking on Book Now.
