World of Greenland is one of the few operators that offer excursions all year round. 

In the summer we have many visitors, and a lot of different activities. We have mild temperatures, whales, midnight sun and good opportunities for sailing and hiking.

In the fall and early winter, we have some of the densest darkness and the most beautiful northern lights. This period is the least busy months, but you can still go shorter hikes, go on ice fjord cruises, fly helicopters and visit locals. Visit Ilulissat in the autumn for a very authentic Greenlandic experience, and experience the soothing darkness.

From February begins the spring season, which offers winter adventures such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and our popular Igloo Lodge. As a rule, it is also possible to sail Icefjord sailing during this period, just as helicopter trips, Northern Lights trips and visits to locals are popular activities.

Every season has something special to offer.

At World of Greenland, we know that the right clothing is crucial for the experience to be top notch.

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.
