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 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.

Just a few of the majestic sights you’ll take in during your trip.


A day-by-day plan to guide your arctic adventure.

  • Day 1: Flight From Iceland to Ilulissat

    Board your flight from Iceland to the Arctic village of Ilulissat, situated at the mouth of the 56 kilometre-long Ilulissat Icefjord – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If it's a sunny day, you can enjoy the wonderful view over the Greenland ice cap from the plane, and on arrival, you will be transferred to your accommodation.

    You'll also enjoy a city walk with a guide to get to know the town. In the evening, you will be treated to an included 2-course welcome dinner. You will spend the next 3 nights in Ilulissat.

  • Day 2: Adventures in the Iceberg Town

    These next two days are free for you to choose your own adventure! You can pick from a wide range of exciting optional excursions, including a motorboat tour to the Eqi glacier with its enormous chunks of calved ice, or cultural demonstrations and village walks. Or what about 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

    You can enjoy today exploring the town of Ilulissat, and will have the opportunity to do some souvenir shopping. A popular gift is a “Tupilak”, an Inuit version of a talisman/voodoo doll. Traditional tupilaks were sculpted into tiny creatures inspired by Inuit mythology.

    You can also choose to enjoy another day of optional activities in Ilulissat. For a truly incredible experience, we recommend an evening boat tour along the Icefjord, during which you will sail among icebergs as large as buildings under the rosy glow of the midnight sun. And for hiking enthusiasts, the Sermermiut Valley, which is just a few kilometres from town, offers spectacular views from a number of well-marked trails.

  • Day 4: Leisurely Morning & Afternoon Departure

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


Here’s a map of your travel route, to help put things in perspective.


Sleep soundly, in the accommodation type of your choice, and wake up ready to enjoy another day of exploration.
