One of the most amazing glacier, the Ilulissat IcefJord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is as beautiful as inaccessible in the middle of the Arctic winter. This unique natural phenomenon pushes out 20 million tons of ice every day, in form of gigantic icebergs that can rise 100 meters above the sea level. We want you to be able to take the unique opportunity and join our guided hike with snowshoes to explore remote spots with remarkable scenery here. ⛷
The knowledge and experience of our local guides will help you to make the most of this wonderful experience. Choosing the best viewpoints for sightseeing and pictures, managing the route according to the weather conditions, relevant information about the flora and fauna, climate change, and many stories about the present and the past of Greenland and its inhabitants.
As you step on a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will ascend between walls covered with snow and ice - please enjoy the magnificent panorama of the “dogs sledge highway”, see frozen lakes, rivers and icebergs glistening under the golden winter light. ✨
Don't worry, you'll have a break to enjoy a homemade lunch cooked with local ingredients.🍲 You'll then hike to the old settlement of Sermermiut, where the first Inuit people arrived 4000 years ago, 10 minutes away from Ilulissat.
Alternatively, you can choose to do this hike in the evening. Please see below for pricing.
