Get close to the Greenland ice sheet in Kangerlussuaq and continue your journey to Disko Bay, where you’ll experience an authentic settlement, Oqaatsut, the beautiful Glacier Camp Eqi, and, of course, Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you can experience giant icebergs in the magical glow of the midnight sun.
On a journey to Greenland, you’ll get up close and personal with the amazing wonders of nature, beautifully paired with Greenland’s unique culture and traditional way of life set against the influence of modern life.
The Ice Sheet Welcomes You to Greenland
Kangerlussuaq is the gateway to Greenland and the first stop on this journey. You’ll never forget the first time you set foot on Greenland’s soil and take in the fresh Greenlandic air. The hinterland is home to stunning scenery, with the enormous ice sheet dominating the landscape. Therefore, an excursion through the tundra to the ice sheet is on the program, and there is a good chance of seeing musk oxen and reindeer. And that’s even before we reach the main attraction of the area: the ice cap, which we’ll be walking on! Then, we head north to Disko Bay, where great adventures await at sea, on land, and the ice.
Ilulissat is the Greenlandic word for icebergs. Ilulissat is beautifully situated at the mouth of the 60-kilometer-long and world-famous Ilulissat Icefjord, added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2004. The ice is amazing, and you can sail on the Icefjord. It’s an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime!
Oqaatsut is a traditional, cozy, small village about 15 kilometers north of Ilulissat as the crow flies. Despite only having about 45 residents, there is a church, school, pharmacist, shop, waterworks, power station, and even a small, cozy restaurant run by a host couple. We’ll stay here for a couple of nights while exploring the village and the area.
Glacier Lodge Eqi
Glacier Lodge Eqi overlooks a large glacier located 80 kilometers north of Ilulissat in a stunning natural area that is surprisingly lush due to its location by the ice. Here, we also spend a few days and nights with trips to the Ice Sheet, great food, and stunning views.
All excursions on this trip are included in the price.
