We took a boat ride out to the Icefjord and it was a memorable experience! What a way to start our trip to Greenland! It was amazing seeing the icebergs up close and sailing through chunks of ice! Would highly recommend!

The most amazing thing I've ever seen with my own two eyes. Ice calving off of the Greenland Ice Cap, squeezing out through a fiord, and into the open ocean where bergs begin their journey down to the coasts of Newfoundland & Labrador! Absolutely breathtaking.

This is one of the must-be-done activities in Ilulissat. You can join a boat your when you are in the town. Make sure that you have tick clothes and pack a bottle of Hot n' Sweet for your cruise.

Hi I am visiting in July only here for morning as I am on a cruise. I have booked a 2 hour boat trip. I walk with a mobilator (walker) do you think that I will manage the boardwalk. Any advice appreciated. Thank you

I am not sure which boat you will be on, but it could be a fisherman's boat. When we were there we had to climb down a latter to get on board. So it could be a bit tricky for you.

Usually you can book through world of greenland or ice cap tours. Also I would like to recommend Air zafari they fly small planes not helicopters :) have a great trip
