Eqip Sermia Glacier, Ilulissat

4.7
#1 of 10 in Wildlife in Greenland
Watch enormous pieces of ice breaking off with a roar at Eqip Sermia Glacier. Hop on an ice-secured boat and sail along the coast with dolphins and whales. The boat will take you through the ice-clogged water as close as possible to the glacier's chilling face. Wait till the engine is off, then sit on the deck for a meal, keeping an eye open for curious seals peeping out of the water. The highlight of the journey for most people is the sight of the icebergs crashing into the ocean.

    The ice fjord and glacier is nice, but I would recommend combining m stay, where you get more intense experience of the calving and tsunamis. At the beginning of august, we had Sun in all diurnal hours (90%), but also annoying kvægmyg in dagtiden. There was peace in the wind and up in the mountains and excursions t delta (best evening) and ' the dead glacier ' recommended warmly.
