NEW: Round trip in the Disco Bay - now including Ilimanaq Lodge!

NEW! On this tour you will get the opportunity to visit the newly built cabins at Ilimanaq Lodge, situated with a fantastic view just south of the Icefjord.

Qeqertarsuaq Island is the biggest island in Greenland and it offers a spectacular terrain with tall, basalt hills and vegetation not found anywhere else in Greenland. Ilulissat is known far and wide for the Ilulissat Icefjord, the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. Ilimanaq is a small settlement just south of the Icefjord. We explore these places on this active tour to the heart of the Disco Bay in Greenland.

The journey starts in Kangerlussuaq where you will take a tour to the Greenland Ice Sheet in a custom-built vehicle. You will even get to feel the ice beneath your feet! The journey continues to Qeqertarsuaq on the Disco Island, and, as you approach, you will see the beautiful basalt hills in the horizon. The surrounding area is one of the preferred habitats to the bowhead whale, so keep your camera and binoculars at hand.

You will be spending 3 days on the island where you can go on some lovely hikes. After 3 days filled with wonderful experiences, you will continue the journey to Ilulissat. Here you will get the chance of a close encounter with the ice as you sail among icebergs in the UNESCO listed Ilulissat Icefjord.

More than 5,000 sled dogs live in Ilulissat, and you can both see and hear them while you experience the busy small town life in Ilulissat, which is the centre of education, culture, transport and administration of Northern Greenland. You will also be visiting the small settlement of Ilimanaq with its totally new cabins. All in all it is a lovely journey around the Disco Bay which will offer you an abundance of fantastic experiences to take home.

Itinerary

The trip aims to give you the best experiences in pristine nature and regions. At the same time, you will have time for classical excursions, which are essential on a trip to Greenland. You have the option of adapting your trip according to weather, wind and further exciting activities. Many excursions are included, except for a dog sleigh ride since the tours strongly depend on current snow conditions at the Lyngmarks glacier. Also, the boat tour to the Icefjord and the whale safari in Ilulissat are not included and nor are the Qajaa excursion in Ilimanaq.
