Excursions at Ilimanaq Lodge
Ilimanaq Glacier Adventure
On this trip, we sail south of Ilimanaq to Itilliup Ilua. We are dropped off on the wide sandy, beach, after which we are driven in off-road vehicles through the arctic tundra until we reach the Tasiusaq Fjord system. This place has been a popular hunting area for thousands of years. From here, we sail further deep in between the icebergs to the end of the fjord, where the two glaciers and the ice sheet come into view.
We go ashore, and with a view of the glacier, we eat our lunch pack. Afterwards we hike towards and on the enormous ice sheet.
The terrain may be uneven. We do not recommend this trip if you have serious back or neck problems.
The trip departs from Ilimanaq and ends in Ilimanaq. You must purchase a shuttle boat if you are staying in Ilulissat.
Lunch pack, coffee and tea is included.
The boat trip is done in an open boat with a reinforced hull to handle the ice safely.
All particpants must be at least 12 years old.
