The French polar explorer and adventurer Paul-Émile Victor had his base right where our lodge is today, and his old expedition hut known as the French hut is still there. Victor went to Eqi in 1948-1953 to make geologically exploration of the Ice Sheet. 

On our guided hike to the ice sheet, we follow in the footsteps of Paul-Émile Victor. In some areas you can still see traces from his tracked vehicles, that carried equipment on the ice sheet. On the hike we pass by remains of his transportation cables and tracked vehicles before we walk on the edge of the enormous ice sheet.

There are several hikes in the area, they consist of different length and level of difficulties. If you choose to buy a guided hike, our staff will ensure warm coffee a nice atmosphere and of course tell you lots about the history of the area, and the flora and fauna we pass by.

Unexpected pleasant surprise

"My wife and I spent several days at these glass cabins at Eqi watching the massive glacier all day and night. It is easy to access by boats from the city of Illulissat in Greenland. Local airline travel folks arranged everything for us. We have traveled to more than a hundred countries around the globe and watched many glaciers from tour boats. Nothing can match watching the glacier from your bed. This experience is unmatched. This resort with separate glass cabins is expensive but fantastic. We watched the Glacier from a short distance from the comfort of our lavish and comfortable beds passed midnight until we fell asleep, We watched whenever we woke up and all day long. We watched the tsunami caused by calving and watched them drown the suicide beach. Tour boats below looked like bouncing toys."

"We stayed 2 nights as part of a self guided tour. We stayed in a standard cabin, which was very spacious, nicely decorated and had great views of the glacier. The standard cabins use shared bathrooms and showers, but that was not a problem. The food is included in the stay, the breakfast and dinners both excellent using foods primarily from Greenland. There are several good hikes from the lodge. We were very pleased with our stay here."

"We stayed in a Comfort Hut for one night. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children, ages 10 and 11). The hut was perfect for us - double bed for the adults and single beds for the children. Small table to play games, full bathroom, and the best part - front deck to watch the glacier. ... The boat trip up to the glacier was wonderful! I never got bored of the icebergs. ... All of the meals were fantastic - musk ox steaks, halibut, salads, bread, etc. The hut was comfortable for sleeping - the blackout curtains were pretty good. Do not miss the hike! It was a beautiful hike, and the guide was wonderful with the kids. Tons of flowers, birds, etc. All of the guides at the camp are wonderful. ... This is a very pricey trip, but it was honestly the highlight of our 2.5 week adventure.
