Witness Greenland's largest ice spectacles on this 12-day package. Your 12 days in Greenland will bring you to the most sought out natural attractions in Greenland, including the Greenland Ice Sheet, Ilulissat Icefjord, the Eqi Glacier, and Disko Island.

We guarantee that you will see icebergs in all sizes and shapes. This extraordinary package trip to Greenland will let you explore the country’s ice spectacles of glaciers, ice cap, icebergs, and ice fjords.

Your trip departs from Copenhagen, Denmark, and takes brings you to Kangerlussuaq, West Greenland. In Kangerlussuaq, you will be visiting Point 660, from where you will ascend to the Greenland Ice Sheet.  Kangerlussuaq is one of the best places to see wildlife, why we might be lucky to encounter caribou, musk ox, Arctic foxes, and hares.

Your journey continues by flight to Aasiaat, from where you will board the ferry to Qeqertarsuaq, Disko Island.  You will stay three days in Qeqertarsuaq to enjoy the unique surroundings of hexagonal basalt formations, glacier, green vegetation, and mountains.

The next stop is Ilulissat, the city of icebergs. The town is situated by the UNESCO world heritage site, Ilulissat Icefjord. Here the sky-scraping icebergs start their voyage out of Disko Bay, forming a new horizon of ice every day, all year round.

The journey continues to Eqi, The Calving Glacier. You will be staying in the cabin town, Glacier Lodge Eqi, just across from where the ice calves. An indescribable natural phenomenon that must be experienced to be understood.

You return to Ilulissat, where we bid you farewell. By then we guarantee that you have seen ice and icebergs in all sizes and shapes, the Inland ice and a calving glacier, as well as the most beautiful places in Disko Bay.

The tour departs during the summer months, June, July, and August. Throughout June and July, you can experience the midnight sun in Disko Bay. In August you can enjoy the most spectacular sunsets.

  1. Peter Wilson

    The theme of this tour does not lie. Never have I seen so many different types of ice, in so many different versions, shapes and colors. Yes, colors, because the light, the sun and the weather produce different visual effects on both glaciers, icebergs and ice sheets.
    The many guided tours were overwhelming, exciting and full of historical facts and funny stories from the present. In general, the Greenlanders are a people who smile and laugh very easily.
    An unforgettable trip.

    En uforglemmelig tur. Naturen er unik og enestående!!!
    Kæmpe isbjerge, fjelde, venlige mennesker og gode guider.
    Når jeg kun giver turen 4 stjerner, er det mest pga. indkvarteringen. Nogle steder var bestemt ok, men jeg vil anbefale man afstemmer forventningerne bedre. Måske havde jeg bare forventet noget andet og bedre.
    Det vi ikke fik indendørs, kompenserede naturen rigeligt for udendørs.
