Daytour to Eqi Glacier
Boat tour to the calving glacier
The Eqi Glacier is one of the most breathtaking destinations in Greenland. The glacier stretches out into the shiny fjord 80 kilometers north of Ilulissat. On this boat tour you can get very close to the glacier front, and hopefully experience the dramatic rumble when pieces of ice crash into the sea. That experience is overwhelming and impressive in every imgainable way.
On the way we pass tiny settlements, steep fields, beautiful waterfalls and icebergs in incredible shapes and colors. And that is before two glaciers and the enormous Icesheet is in sight. If we are lucky we might even spot seals and whales on the way.
A pleasant lunch time awaits with packed lunches in front of the glacier. Here we can enjoy the unforgettable view before heading back towards Ilulissat.
The duration of this boat tour is approximately 6 hours. There is always a stop at the glacier for lunch. We sail in small, fast-moving boats.
