Eqip Sermia Glacier, Ilulissat

#1 of 10 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.

  • 2,5 hours beautiful boatride from Ilulissat. Boats wait for 2 hrs in front of the glacier. When we were there, not too much calving, was rather disappointing.  more »
  • Eqi is amazing. This natural fenomenon is something else. You don't get to come that close to the glacier due to safety, but you can clearly see and hear the calving. The lunch onboard was fine...  more »
  • Were there 10 years apart and surprised how far the glacier has retreated in the 10 years.
