Transport to Ilimanaq Lodge – A boat ride through UNESCO

There are no roads to Ilimanaq from the surrounding towns. You arrive by boat, and your holiday starts the moment you leave Ilulissat.

The journey through Ilulissat Icefiord is in a league of its own. We zig zag through some of the world’s largest icebergs, and with a bit of luck we will encounter a whale or two before we arrive at the small quay of Ilimanaq. It is no coincidence that the area is part of UNESCOs world heritage list.

  • The boat ride takes approximately 40 minutes depending on weather and ice condition.
  • There are several daily departures between Ilulissat and Ilimanaq. 
  • We made it easy for you to arrange the boat shuttle. When booking an overnight stay in Ilimanaq Lodge, or an excursion in the area, you can simply just puchase the shuttle as an add on.
  • There is no guide on board our boat shuttle between Ilulissat and Ilimanaq. The boat trip is pure transport.
