An incredible journey above the arctic circle

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 carved 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.

  • Day 2: Adventures in the Iceberg Town

    These next two days are free for your own adventures! You can choose from a wide range of exciting optional excursions, such as helicopter rides over icebergs, motorboat tours to the Eqi glacier with its enormous pieces of calved ice, cultural demonstrations and village walks, whale watching safaris or excursions to the small, remote settlements in the area.

    Note: We recommend booking the optional activities in advance through your travel consultant at Nordic Visitor, though you may also book activities at your hotel in Ilulissat during your stay.

  • Day 3: More free time in Ilulissat

    Enjoy another day for optional activities in Ilulissat. For a truly incredible experience we recommend an evening boat tour in the Icefjord, in which you will sail among icebergs as big as office buildings under the rosy glow of the midnight sun. And for hiking enthusiasts, the Sermermiut Valley just a few kilometres from town offers spectacular views from a number of marked trails.

  • Day 4: Leisurely Morning & Afternoon Departure

    Today it’s time to say goodbye to this majestic land, but you still have time to take a walk around the village or do some last-minute souvenir shopping. On the return flight to Reykjavík in the afternoon, enjoy the stunning views once again over the Ilulissat Icefjord and its surrounding landscapes.


Here’s a map of Greenland, to help put things in perspective.

Icefjord Adventure, September 2014

Truly memorable and treasured trip

Because it was necessary to change the dates of the Extra Services (cultural walks/boat trips/etc) of our prepaid tour; we were not adequately dressed for the boat trip thru the icebergs. This was only due to time limitations after arriving from our Iceland flight. Otherwise, everything was wonderful; especially our beautiful view at Hotel Artic!!!!! Erlas Sonja was very nice to work with; we had no issues with any vouchers. Many thanks for making our adventure to Greenland a truly memorable and treasured trip. Our experience was a very positive one. Got your contact from an article in International Travel News written by someone we had met on a trip to Svalbard with several years earlier.


Icefjord Adventure, August 2014

Wonderful to work with

Hotel Icefjord was great. We were given an unusually large room, with a small kitchen. We were pleased. Alexandra was wonderful to work with. She answered all my questions promptly, and was very helpful.
