Glacier walk and Ice cave
Description of the tour
On this tour we go for a glacier hike and visit a breath-taking ice cave hidden on a remote glacier on a beautiful little island in East Greenland.
You can start your adventure either from Kulusuk or Tasiilaq. The whole trip will take around 4-5 hours and starts with a beautiful boat ride to the glacier. From Tasiilaq it takes around 40 minutes to reach the little island and from Kulusuk it is a 20 minute ride.
While we make our way over the ocean, we will have the chance to see beautiful fjords, mountain ranges and ice bergs and maybe even witness some of Greenland’s spectacular wildlife! If we are lucky, we might stumble across humpback whales, fin whales, seals or even orcas along the way.
Once our local boat driver drops us off, your qualified guide will introduce you to your safety equipment. This includes helmets and crampons.
Your guide will then safely lead you on the glacier.
The view on the glacier is spectacular and during the easy 30-minute walk it takes to reach the ice cave you will have plenty of time to explore its amazing features like moulins and crevasses.
Once at the cave you will have more than enough time to lose yourself in this surreal world of blue and take in all of its incredible details. Usually, we spend around 30 minutes in the cave. We want to make sure you get the most out of this once in a lifetime experience and really get to enjoy all the different and mesmerizing shapes and shades the glacier creates. Since we are the only company operating tours to this cave, we usually have the cave and the glacier completely to ourselves which makes the experience even more special.
After the cave we will make our way a bit further into the glacier to a viewpoint from which we are able to admire the calving front of the glacier. The place where the ice meets the ocean and icebergs are created.
Another 30 minutes of walking will bring us back to our boat that will safely get you back to Kulusuk / Tasiilaq. On the way back we will get another chance to look for more wildlife and take in the beautiful surroundings.
If you are interested in learning more about what to expect and how to be as prepared as possible for this adventure, we put together a complete and more detailed guide for you here.
We also offer an Ice Climbing + Ice Cave Tour to the same glacier in case you are looking for something a bit more challenging! You can learn more about this tour here.
