Exploring the Ice Cap
The Ice Cap of Greenland covers 1,710,000 sq. km, or just about 80% of the island’s landmass. At almost 2,400 km long from north to south, it is the second largest ice sheet in the world. This massive glacier changes constantly—each year the ice retreats several meters inland and it is therefore considered to be one of the most visible markers of global climate change. It really is an amazing experience to add to your bucket list.
In most of our Greenland packages you can add an optional excursion to the Ice Cap, such as sightseeing flights, guided hikes and boat tours. For active travellers who wish to take part in more adventurous excursions on the ice sheet, we can also customize a tour package to include a stopover in Kangerlussuaq.
