Feel Your Heartbeat at the "Edge" of the World

Try to picture this image: you are sailing in the ocean and you find a 5-km wide glacier standing right in front of you – the glacier is so huge that you can barely see the end of it. This is what you can experience during this excursion.

Eqi glacier lies to the north of Ilulissat. Arctic Adventure guide will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to the harbour. From the busy harbour, we will sail north to meet the impressive glacier.

The Eqi glacier stands there quietly and awaits us patiently. When we are close to the glacier, we may turn off the engine to enjoy the silent and peaceful moments there. Being there with this gigantic glacier, you will feel it is like the edge of the world.

We will sail back from Eqi to Ilulissat directly in this excursion. The area between Eqi and Ilulissat is usually visited by whales in the summertime. If you are lucky, you may spot whales and some sea birds alongside the way.

A simple lunch box is included in this excursion. The food of the lunch box varies from meal to meal based on what is available at that moment. If you have any allergies, please inform us as soon as possible. However, please note that most of the food in Greenland needs to be shipped from Denmark and thus depends largely on the availability of that period.

Number of Participants: min 6/ max 12
