12-day Round Trip to Kangerlussuaq, Disko Island, Ilulissat, and Eqi

 

NEW for 2021: Itinerary re-designed!

This is our ever-popular round trip in the Disko Bay, where you will discover the most beautiful places like pearls on a string. This trip gives you the feeling of being where no one has been before you. It will take you into the heart of small, quaint towns and settlements. Here, life is  a mix of ancient traditions, such as hunting and fishing, and modern amenities creating a truly authentic Arctic lifestyle which is a peculiar as it is captivating.

The trip starts in Kangerlussuaq, where the Greenland ice sheet covers the ground as far as the eye can see. You get the opportunity to feel the cold in this icy realm as you marvel at the amzing views. After this, we move on to three days on Disko Island, a hikers’ paradise, where you stay in the old whaling town of Qeqertarsuaq, surrounded by steep basalt mountains and an abundance of plants and flowers.

Our adventure continues in town of icebergs, Ilulissat, beautifully located at the shore of the Disko Bay and next to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord.

We then move further north and spend a few days at one of North Greenland’s gems, the cabins of Glacier Lodge Eqi, where you will stay with a view of the enormous calving glacier.

This comprehensive tour of discovery will introduce you to the diversity of Greenland both in terms of nature, wildlife and culture!

The trip is available from June to August.

Until the end of July, the Disko Bay is basking in the midnight sun, which can be experienced on evening cruises with icebergs as the ultimate backdrop.

Along the way, our knowledgeable and friendly local guides will make sure you see everything the Disko Bay has to offer.
