Eqi + Paakitsoq


EQI + Paakitsoq tour is similar to “EQI-Calving Glacier” just with two extra hours.

It’s our experience, that the extra time on this tour is always enjoyable. Maybe we can use the time to get closer to the glacier on the days with heavy ice pack. May we see beautiful whales or icebergs on the way, that you will love the time to take pictures of. Maybe you want to eat your lunch at a waterfall or some other idyllic place. In other words. The time to do the special trick for you and find those special moments mother nature gives us on the specific day.

We will swing by Paakitsoq area where there are also great chances to see the whales. So in this tour you really have both the whales, the ice and the glacier.

Discover the calving glacier that throws tons of ice every day into the EQI Fjord, 80 km north of Ilulissat. Millions of tiny bubbles of compressed air creak in huge explosions – forced into the fjord by the flood of ice that is still floating. EQI is one of the few places where it is possible to experience a calving glacier nearby, as conditions allow you to get closer to the glacier. Of course, at a safe distance where you can see and hear the spectacular scenario.

The trip goes north to Ilulissat, and through the beautiful ATAA fjord surrounded by high mountains. When you round the last Promont and the EQI Glacier appears – a new world opens. It is difficult to understand that the glacier front is 4 km wide. But the closer we get to the glacier, the more we will be the size of the Greenland nature.

Many say that this trip to the EQI Glacier is one of their highlights of the trip to Greenland.
