Located 250 km north of the Arctic Circle on Greenland’s west coast, the Ilulissat Icefjord is a sight to behold with its maze of icebergs calved from the vast Sermeq Kujalleq ice sheet. So remarkable is this natural wonder that it was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. This tour to the amazing Ilulissat area offers you a chance to experience some of the most remote, dramatic, and pristine landscapes on the planet along with plenty of optional excursions to get a real feel for the Arctic way of life.
This active break in Ilulissat offers the perfect combo of Arctic nature, culture and adventure. Get a taste of the Arctic way of life with a guided walking tour of the town and enjoy the thrill of dog-sledding in the wilderness with a local musher. You‘ll also have some free time to explore on your own or choose from optional day tours such as hiking, boat tours and sightseeing flights.
This incredible journey showcases the striking contrasts of Greenland, from the fertile green landscapes and Norse Viking history in the south to the ice-filled fjords and rich Greenlandic culture on the west coast. With overnight stays in three towns—Narsarsuaq, Nuuk, and Ilulissat—you’ll get a taste of the local way of life along with free time to enjoy optional adventures such as hiking, kayaking, helicopter tours and iceberg cruises.
