This trip is long, taking about four hours each way, but the scenery is excellent and the calving glacier is fascinating, not least for the loud groaning and cracking of the ice. I wouldn't recommend it for young children or anyone with a tendency to...More

This is the edge of the world. Arctic Adventures arranged all day cruise to the glacier could not have been better. The comfortable boat, skippered by the affable Klaus, moved well through the Disko Bay eaters and we were able to come within 100 yards...More

I'm sure I'm not the only person who felt this way--this is just a warning for anyone wavering about whether or not to do this tour. If you have any issues with seasickness or claustrophobia this may not be for you. We did World of...More

We took a boat trip for the day, travelling from Ilulissat and return. Whilst it is a reasonably long day out, it was well worth it. We travelled past a vast range of glaciers and varying landscapes to eventually pull up within 1km of the...More

Takes about 2 - 3 hours to reach Eqi Glacier from Ilulissat but is worth the wait. We spent about 2 hours in front of the glacier as it constantly calved. Glacier face is about 2.5km in width and over 200m in height. Great trip...More

Yes, Mark is correct. The glacier itself is a short adventure, the icebergs in the fjords require a boat ride that lasts about 2 -3 hours. It will be one of the most spectacular boat rides in your lifetime and will go by... More
