Trip Between Icebergs, smaller icebergs and giant icebergs. Get close to the icebergs and experience the water very closely from smaller boat. See the icebergs dripping with water and we will even see streams of water coming from the top of the icebergs or in the middle of it. Departure at. 11.30 with a two-hour trip.

We will be sailing from Ilulissat at the bottom of Disko Bay, where we have a good opportunity to see whales swim around and find food in the bay and even see them between the giant icebergs. Here we see humpback whales, minke whales or even the enoumous sei whales and blue whales. From the water we look at and explore the gigantic icebergs, Ilulissat – which is the Greenlandic name of the town, which directly translated literally means “the icebergs”.
We sail in a smaller fast-going open boat that includes max. 6 passengers. Here we are getting close to the water and the ice. We are flexible and can stop anywhere for good photo or movie opportunities.
At the bottom of the 50 km deep fjord, ice is breaking of the northern hemisphere’s most productive glacier. The front of the glacier is thirteen kilometers long and rises three hundred meters above the water. Every day ice breaks of in an a mount equivalent to the United States total water consumption for one year.
At the mouth of the icefiord, immediately south of the town they are stranding and here we see icebergs rising to over 100 meters above sea level, and remember only an eighth of the iceberg mass is over the water, the rest is below.
This is perhaps most clearly illustrated by the thousands of smaller iceblocks and giant icebergs, where we get a look deep in the crystal clear water.
