Dream trip in the Disko Bay

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Icebergs
Whalesafari
Culture
Ice Sheet

This tour gives you the chance to enter an area where only a few people have been before you. You will be staying at the Glacier Lodge Eqi, perhaps one of the most beautiful, peaceful and unique places in all of Greenland. Furthermore, we will take you to small settlements and a lot of the must-see sights of West Greenland.

The tour begins in Kangerlussuaq – the gateway to Greenland – and just 25 kilometers from the immense Greenland Ice Sheet.

Along the way, you will get to spend some wonderful days in Ilulissat, just north of Ilulissat Ice Fjord which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From here, you will go to Glacier Lodge Eqi, 80 kilometers north of Ilulissat. From your cabins, you will have an amazing view of the calving Eqi Glacier.

The tour will end with a three-day stay on the Disco Island. We will stay in the old town of Qeqertarsuaq, which used to be a place for whale hunters. The town is surrounded by steep mountains and pretty vegetation. Disco Island offers several great walks.

The trip is available from June to August during which the summer is intense and warm, and the Disco Bay is adorned in colors of the midnight sun.
