Enjoy the cocktail with glacier ice and immerse yourself in the scenic views!

The Greenland Ice Cap produces 250 million tons of ice every year. Close to Narsarsuaq, the Qooroq Glacier fills up the fjord with beautiful icebergs. Many travellers have the chance to see it, but do you want to taste it?

This excursion takes you closer to the icebergs and offers you the refreshment you can only get in Greenland – a cocktail with glacier ice in it!

You will head to the harbour of Narsarsuaq with the included transfer service, and from there, the boat and experienced caption will sail with you to enjoy the fascinating fjord view. The cruise sails between the icebergs and goes as close to the calving glacier as possible.

Once the caption thinks you are close enough, he/she will turn off the engine to enjoy the silence. All you can hear, if you are lucky, is the sound of the creaking ice.

Want to taste the glacier water? Some unique refreshments are prepared for this excursion. We will get some ice and put it in our cocktails! Hear the amazing sound of thousands-year-old compressed air turn into bubbles and burst in your glass! Isn’t it the best cocktail you ever get?

Please note there is no guide in this excursion. 

Please email us the hotel you are staying at and make sure you are reachable in Greenland to facilitate a smooth transfer and communication.
