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.

Please note
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.

Meet the operator

At World of Greenland, we put great honor in pulling other local tour operators onto the scene. 
Being a part of Air Greenland Group, our duty is to lift Greenland, and this is partially done through strong cooperations with smaller, local tour companies.

Our daytour to Eqi Glacier is operated by Unique Tours – a company owned by Lars Erik who runs the company with his sons.

You can look forward to meeting young guides with a first-hand knowledge of the area. Ask them anything and they can explain from a local’s perspective.

What we love about Unique Tours is their strong dedication, punctuality, and their huge effort in engaging young locals in tourism development.

We are very proud of having Unique Tours on our partner team!

Difficulty Level
1: Easy

An easy tour means that you must be able to walk a few kilometers in slightly hilly terrain. Like taking a walk on paths in the woods, with a little detour every now and then. You must also be mobile enough to be able to board a boat, even if it may sway a little.

2: Moderate

Accessible to anyone with good health, who is used to off-road walking and hiking. When it comes to sledding, we call it moderate, as you may have to get off the sled and walk / run next to it. In addition, you need to have a healthy back as there will be bumps along the way.

3: Challenging

On a challenging hike you must be able to walk up and down steep hills. You may also have to walk on loose rocks and cross streams, and walk on snow/ice. Involves hiking with a backpack. When challenging is used in connection with sledding tours, it is because we expec that you can walk / run after the sledge up hills, if this is needed. 

4: Demanding

On a demanding hike we expect you to be in good physical shape. This means that you can hike long distances, maybe during several days, and that you can climb many altimeters during the day. Eg. our hike to the Inland Ice, where 1000 altimeters and 20 km must be climbed in one day. Demanding hikes involve hiking with your own backpack.


Expedition level. Requires considerable effort and perseverance. Only suitable for people in really good physical shape.

Besøgende til Glacier Lodge Eqi

Glacier Lodge Eqi, er beliggende på fjeldet 100 m over vandet. Vi anbefaler derfor at bagage medbringes i en rygsæk, da stigningen ikke gør det muligt at medbringe en kuffert. Bemærk, at landgangen ikke er handikapvenlig. Alle vandreture i Eqi, samt vandring på egen hånd bør betragtes som fjeldture der går fra udfordrende til meget krævende.
