Gain a waterline perspective of the enormous size of the icebergs in the World Heritage Listed Ilulissat Icefjord on this unforgettable kayaking tour. No prior experience necessary.

Perspective is everything in judging how big something is. And the best way to get a feel for just how big Greenland’s icebergs are is by looking up at them from the waterline. Even better to do so using the traditional method of transportation of the Inuit - the kayak.

After donning drysuits, and some kayaking and safety instructions from our fully accredited kayak guide, we will paddle along the coastline of Ilulissat towards the Icefjord. We will stay together and maintain a safe distance from the towers of ice to explore this floating labyrinthine landscape. Remember, chunks of ice can break off unexpectedly, and safety is always first.

There will be plenty of time to take a break from the paddles, take photos, and simply sit back and enjoy the views during our minimum of 2 hours on the water. We may even be lucky and have some whales visit us!

    We were expecting single kayaks, since there stood nothing about double kayaks on GTG’s website, where we made the booking. My friend was not comfortable with shared kayaks, so she quit last min. before getting into the water. Later we got a refund for her ticket.
    The description said we had a minimum of 2 hours in the water, this was more like 1 hour and 30min.
    We saw a lot of nice icebergs and had a kind guide with us.
    I think that the description promise a little to much, compared to what you get. But nevertheless a really nice location to go kayaking.

    It was amazing! To paddle in this cold water close by such majestic creation as icebergs was a breath-taking experience. Our guides Ivan and Peter were great too. It took our group (10 persons) too long to get into the water. So they extended our trip to make sure that we definetely got our 1,5-2 hours paddling, besides getting in and out of the water. On the water we got some hot drinks and some fun facts about the area.
