Walk on the world’s second-largest Ice Sheet in this unforgettable excursion to Point 660 near Kangerlussuaq.

It is a ~1.5-2 hour drive with a bus from Kangerlussuaq to the Greenland Ice Sheet along a road originally built by Volkswagen so they could test their cars on the ice.  While those days are long gone, we will take advantage of this infrastructure and travel along the beautiful valley of Sandflugtsdal with its turquoise glacial river and rolling arctic tundra towards our destination.

Along the way, we will talk about the history and features of the area around Kangerlussuaq, and keep a sharp eye out for the Musk Ox, reindeer, arctic hare and arctic foxes that are frequently found along this route.

Once we arrive at Point 660, we will hike up onto the Ice Sheet following a path that has been prepared through the glacial moraine. The width of this track shows you how much the ice has retreated in the years since the road was built, and unfortunately, it is growing wider with each passing year.

On the Icecap itself, we have breathtaking views of this enormous sheet of ice that stretches as far as the eye can see. You will have plenty of time to wander around (carefully), explore, and take pictures before we return to Kangerlussuaq via the same route.

    We went on this 660 Ice sheet tour and had any expectations before we went out. I can now say, that it was maybe the most beautiful views I have ever experienced. A 5 hour trip with an amazing tourguide, who talked us trough the nature while we drove on the longest road in Greenand.

    We made a few stops on the road to watch not only the spectacular views, but also got lucky to see musk ox, reindeers and arctic hares.

    If you have 5 hours in Kangerlussuaq – you should with any doubt go on this trip!

    Great tour if you have limited time in Kangerlussuaq! I managed to step on the ice sheet during the layover in Kangerlussuaq airport!
    Friendly and informative guide, we made some stops on the way to the ice, also saw some wild animals on the way and we even stop and get out to take pictures.
    Walking on the ice was nice, I brought my own little spikes which I use in the winter so it was an easy walk. Otherwise if you dont have your own spikes or walking sticks you need to be a bit careful while walking on the ice.
