Disko Bay & Eqi Glacier

8 Day Tour, from £3765 per person

Ilulissat is the best known town in Greenland and is beautifully situated besides one of the most productive glaciers in the world, at the mouth of a 40 kilometre ice-fjord filled with gigantic icebergs as tall as skyscrapers with only one tenth of their volume visible above the water.  Stay at the modern 4-star Hotel Arctic located on the outskirts of town which offers outstanding views of the icebergs in the bay. 

Combine stays in Ilulissat with two nights at the fabulous Glacier Lodge Eqi. Eqi glacier is the only glacier in the Ilulissat area where it is possible to experience glacier calving: stay in a cabin and awake to the sound of icebergs crashing into the sea. There are 10 huts at Glacier Lodge Eqi, all with outstanding views of the Eqi glacier. Stays here are on a full board basis and there are a number of local hikes possible from the Glacier Lodge to the lagoon, the moraine and the glacier itself.
