Itinerary

Day 1Iceland - Greenland, Guided City Walk, Welcome Dinner & Sunset Cruise

Flight from Reykjavik to Ilulissat (about 3 hours). Transfer to the hotel and welcome meeting at 4-star Hotel Arctic. After the welcome meeting with your local guide enjoy a guided city walk of Ilulissat, and afterwards, you have some time to explore the town, visit the local museum and observe Greenlandic life at the always busy harbour. Welcome dinner (2-course) is included at Hotel Arctic. Around 22:00 we depart for a midnight sailing trip to the famous Ilulissat Icefiord that is the world’s largest ice sculpture park. The experience is overwhelming, lights and colours constantly change and enjoy a late drink on “the real rocks”. Duration about 3 hours. Dress warmly.

(Note: The season for midnight sun is approx. May 22-Jul 24. Outside this season the excursion is operated as an evening cruise with the beautiful sunset reflecting over the icebergs).

Accommodation: Hotel Arctic
Meals included: Welcome dinner at Hotel Arctic

Day 2 Boat trip to Eqi - the calving glacier & Hunters villiage

Breakfast at the hotel. Early morning departure for the one-day boat trip to Eqi – the calving glacier. The Eqi glacier runs into the fjord 80 km north of Ilulissat and is one of the most beautiful places in Greenland. You can get close to the edge of the glacier by boat as we cruise in front of the glacier for around one hour and might see the calving process. The front of the glacier is 5 km wide! The sound of the active glacier is quite remarkable while the sight of icebergs toppling into the water is breathtaking. Afterwards, we continue to the small settlement of Oqaatsut/Rodebay, where we will enjoy a delicious lunch. The local population of about 40 persons is dependent on fishing and hunting; you experience an entirely different world compared to the nearby town of Ilulissat. Guided walk through the village before enjoying a local meal at the old trading station. For hundreds of years, Oqaatsut/Rodebay was a stopover place for Dutch whalers, who dragged the huge whales onto land here in the old village. The village, which lies in a beautiful natural setting just 15 km north of Ilulissat, has its school, church, shop and a single restaurant “H8”, which serves excellent meals in the old colonial building.

Duration: about 7-8 hours / Level of difficulty: Easy
Accommodation: Hotel Arctic
Meals included: Breakfast & Lunch & farewell dinner

Day 3Inuit Settlement at the Ilulissat Icefjord & Return to Iceland

Breakfast at the hotel. By bus as far as the road goes. Guided walking tour of the old settlement Sermermiut valley on the famous Ilulissat Icefjord that was inscribed on UNESCO’s world heritage list in 2004. The ancient settlement of Sermermiut, 1.5 km south of the town, is surrounded by Ilulissat’s beautiful icebergs. Various Inuit cultures have lived here over the past 4,000 years, and you can still see remains from ancient times. Learn about local history and customs before Europeans arrived. See plots settled for thousands of year and admire the views across the majestic icebergs. Please wear proper boots or hiking boots. Approximate 3 hours. Rest of the day free at leisure to hike along the Iceford and explore the town of Ilulissat.

The short Ilulissat adventure has come to an end, and you return in the afternoon by flight to Reykjavik, Iceland.
