Icefjord Adventure

(4 days / 3 nights)

View Photos View Map

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.

Due to high demand, this tour is sold out for 2018.
Please contact us for availability in 2019.

  • Day 1: Flight From Reykjavik to Ilulissat

    Depart from Reykjavik Domestic Airport for a flight 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. In the evening, you will be treated to an included 2-course welcome dinner and you will spend the next three nights in Ilulissat.

    Attractions
  • 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 helicopter ride over icebergs, a motorboat tour to the Eqi glacier with its enormous chunks of calved ice, or 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.

    Attractions
  • 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, 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, which is just a few kilometres from town, offers spectacular views from a number of well-marked trails.

    You will return to your accommodation and have an included 3-course dinner.

  • 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 Reykjavík in the afternoon, enjoy the stunning views once again over the Ilulissat Icefjord and its surrounding landscapes.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Wonderful experience

Thank you for a wonderful experience. We are already working with our travel consultant to book a return trip to Greenland!

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.

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.
