Price from


Very few places in Greenland are as beautiful as the Eqi glacier!

The glacier comes out in a fiord about 80 km north of Ilulissat. By boat it is possible to go very close to the edge of the glacier and see big pieces of ice break off. The crashes are enormous and the sight of the icebergs falling into the water is impressive.

Departure from Ilulissat in the early morning, in a modern and convenient tourist boats with room both outdoors and indoors. There is tea and coffee on the way and opportunity to buy beer and water. During the boat trip the guide will talk about the things that can be seen on the way.

When getting close to the glacier a delicious lunch is served. The boat will stay in front of the glacier for approximately 2 hours, while we hope to spot some amazing calvings.

In the afternoon, the boat will arrive at Port Victor. Port Victor is the "harbour" at Ice Camp Eqi. Only passengers that are staying in Ice Camp Eqi go on land, the rest stays on the boat. Sail back to Ilulissat.



The length of the boat trip to and from the glacier can last between 2 - 5 hours each way. It depends on the boat used the given day. The stop in front of the glacier lasts approximately 2 hours.
