Ilulissat Summer Break
3 Day Tour, from £1329 per person
Spend two nights in Ilulissat and experience the midnight sun on this short break to West Greenland. Take either a boat trip or amazing helicopter trip to the UNESCO designated Ilulissat Ice Fjord, which is filled with gigantic icebergs produced by one of the most productive glaciers in the world. With ear-splitting roars they are constantly calving, making giant waves as they crash into the sea.
Fly to Ilulissat with Air Iceland from Reykjavik Domestic Airport. Transfer to the Hotel Arctic and check in for 2 nights. Attend a welcome meeting before enjoying a walking tour of the town to learn about its history. (D)
Free day in Ilulissat to explore at leisure or take optional excursions. Why not take a boat trip to the small Inuit settlement of Oqaitsut, also known as Rodebay. This isolated village has a local population of around 40 people who are totally dependent on fishing and hunting. Enjoy a guided walk including lunch at the old trading station.
Or fly by helicopter over mountains and fjord systems before reaching Ilulissat Ice Fiord, which is now on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Land in front of the glacier wall and enjoy a glass of champagne before following the fjord 55km to the open sea and circle over the huge icebergs.
