Eqip Sermia Glacier, Ilulissat

4.7
#1 of 12 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.

  • Ilulissat local 1, went on tour. One way 4 ~ 5 hours to go, watching the glacier will be back. Service is still a little snack. I didn't feel that summer, but much colder.

  • Very nice day with icebergs, whales and the Tidewater glaciers. On board were the most delicious halibut, which you can think of!

  • This is a must. You can't go to Ilulissat, without taking a trip to the Eqi. Whether you choose a trip with stays or a regular day trip is subordinate. The silence, noise, sight, the air and the massive ice that sweeps down into the icy water is magical.
