Ilulissat Icefjord | Ilulissat | Disko Bay
Witness the incredible icebergs of Ilulissat Icefjord on this two-hour boat tour. With a local captain, you will be cruising among the massive icebergs of the Icefjord. This tour is for anyone looking to experience the wonders of the Arctic!
The icebergs of Ilulissat Icefjord originates from one of the world’s fastest and most active glaciers, the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier. The beautiful scenery of Ilulissat Icefjord is not only created by the active glacier but also due to the location. Did you know, that the glacier is one of few, that actually reaches the sea?
By Ilulissat harbor, your captain will seat you and your fellow explorers on the open vessel, that will safely take you between the ice. En route, we might be lucky to spot a whale or two, so keep an eye out for the whales, playing hide and seek between the waves!
When arriving at the mouth of the fjord, the captain will slowly steer the vessel into the Kangia, so you can enjoy the towering icebergs and spell-binding scenery. It is quite a unique experience to drift through the fjord, with the white and blue nuanced icebergs surrounding you. But the massive ice azures are only the tip of the iceberg, as the dramatic sight and sound of calving icebergs will decorate your inner explorer!
Due to the incredible beauty of the Icefjord, dramatic landscape of glacial ice and calving icebergs steadily drifting out to sea, the fjord is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage. As you are cruising in between the massive ice blocks, you will understand why the awe-inspiring natural phenomena is a world heritage.
