We leave Ilulissat in the early morning by boat heading north to the famous Eqi Glacier, one of the most breathtaking places in Greenland. We stop for about an hour close to the massive glacier wall, turn off the engines and admire the magnificent views of this huge calving glacier. A packed lunch on board is included. In the afternoon we make our way back to Ilulissat.

This morning you will sail south from Ilulissat towards the small settlement of Ilimanaq. On the way you will pass by the famous Kangia Icefjord with a stunning view of the massive icebergs. You will visit the small settlement of Ilimanaq with its picturesque colonial buildings and come to know how people live in such a remote part of the world. You enjoy lunch at a local family's home. In the afternoon you will sail back to Ilulissat, passing by the breathtaking Icefjord once more.

In the evening, you go for an impressive kayaking trip among the gigantic icebergs in Disko Bay. The activity consists in kayaking along the coast of Ilulissat, from where you can see big icebergs coming from the Ilulissat Icefjord. You experience this breathtaking scenery in the most natural and traditional way. Just you and your kayak, paddling as Inuits used to so and some still do. Nonetheless all the safety measures are included: the best equipment in the market (clothing that enables you to swim in freezing waters and the most safe and stable kayaks) and if that were not enough, our kayak instructors have the highest qualifications and lots of experience kayaking in Arctic regions (to participate in this trip max height is 2m and weight is 110kg).

This afternoon you will head south to explore the small settlement of Ilimanaq and on your way pass by the famous Kangia Icefjord with a stunning view of the massive icebergs. Ilimanaq means ‘the area of expectations’ since you would expect to get a good catch here in the mid 19th century. At that time, hundreds of families lived along the coast. Today, the settlement only counts around 50 inhabitants. On a guided settlement walk you will visit the local church, school and the dog area as well as the old wooden houses and your guide provides you with an insight into Greenlandic culture and the local way of living. The evening will come up with some real taste of Greenland. You enjoy dinner at Restaurant Egede, the historic home of Poul Egede, which has been painstakingly restored and nowadays houses one of Greenland’s best restaurants. The historic spirit of this place, the marvelous location with a view into Disko Bay and the fresh Greenlandic cuisine allow for an unforgettable evening before you head back to Ilulissat.

In the early morning you will sail about an hour from Ilulissat to Ilimanaq, passing by the stunning UNESCO Icefjord and its giant icebergs. From the small settlement of Ilimanaq you set off with your guide by UTV, driving south through the ever-changing landscape until you reach the fjord. From there you will sail by open boat deep into the ancient fjord where hunters and prey have been battling for centuries. You jump ashore with your guide and walk towards Sarqardliup glacier that looks inviting but also craves humility. This is where you start to feel like a polar explorer and just want to walk on the thousands-of-years old glacial ice. So that is exactly what you will do. Your glacier guide explains about safety and precautions and takes you through this endless world of ice. Amazing! In the evening you return to Ilulissat.

In the morning you will be transferred by boat to the small settlement of Oqaatsut. Here we will go kayaking in Disko Bay. Before we start, you will get a short introduction to kayaking and then we will practice a bit just off the coast of Oqaatsut. We then head towards the icebergs. We will paddle among the icebergs in the bay and enjoy the spectacular views surrounding us. We will have some refreshment in Oqaatsut before we take the boat back to Ilulissat (to participate in this trip max height is 2m and weight is 110kg).

Today you will go on a whale safari in Disko Bay with its giant icebergs. During the summer many different whale species migrate to the colder waters of the Disko Bay area, commonest humpback whales, fin whales and minke whales. We are in contact with local fishermen who keep us up to date on where we are likely to spot some whales.

Equipment list Fire & Ice

14 days touring the highlights of Iceland and Greenland

Below is an equipment list with items we highly recommend you bring on the journey. To enjoy the trip to the fullest, comfortable and good equipment is essential. So be a bit picky about what you bring on our trip, make sure it is adequate for arctic conditions.

Clothing & Footwear

  • Non-cotton, wool long sleeves and tights (base layer)

    Base layers are designed to keep you warm despite they might be wet from sweating, for example - therefore they must not be cotton but instead a lightweight wool or other fast-drying fiber. Base layers will also keep you warm if, for example, your outer layers are not entirely windproof or waterproof. If there is one thing to stress, it is that having several light layers to choose from, or use in combination with each other, is far more valuable for regulating body temperature than having one or two heavy layers that might make you too cold or too hot, but never just right. It is recommended to bring a selection of long-sleeve shirts and pants for lightweight base layers, so you have a few extras.

  • Wool sweater, fleece or PrimaLoft jacket (mid layer)

    A wool layer is always nice to have as additional warmth. It should not be your heaviest winter sweater, but just something you feel could make you warm and cosy if you had a persistent chill. It is recommended to bring a light- to medium-weight wool sweater or a fleece or prima loft jacket.

  • All-purpose or fleece pants (mid layer)

    When you are on land, and if it’s dry, the waterproof pants (outer layer) layer won’t be necessary, but you’ll need more than a base layer. It is recommended to bring a pair of light, loose breathable pants as a sort of all-purpose pants. Fleece pants can be useful if you easily feel cold. Jeans are strongly discouraged.

  • breathable light jacket (outer layer)

    When you’re on land, and if it’s dry, the waterproof jacket layer won’t be necessary, but you’ll need more than a base layer. It is recommended to bring a light jacket, or even a vest. Lightweight puffy jackets work well.

  • windproof & waterproof jacket and pants (outer layer)

    Whether it’s to protect you from wind and rain on land or from ocean spray while sailing, having good outer layers to protect against the elements will make the difference between a pleasant and unpleasant trip. It is recommended to bring both a windproof/waterproof jacket and a pair of windproof/waterproof rain pants. Gore-Tex is a leading manufacturer of breathable and waterproof layers.

  • warm hat and light (fleece) gloves

    A bit of wind, a mammoth iceberg nearby, and even fog can have more effect on the air temperature than you might imagine, and it can be magnified when sailing or standing a few hundred meters above sea level. Even though it is summer and there is not a single patch of snow to be found, you still need to be prepared with a few of the more ‘wintery’ items. It is recommended to bring a warm hat and gloves. As a light version, a buff to wear around the head or neck is also useful.

  • hiking boots

    Footwear is of the utmost importance in Greenland. It must be comfortable yet supportive, as it is what protects your feet and will keep you going all day long. So bring your favourite hiking boots, that you will likely use across all sailing and hiking activities, on all days. Good hiking boots have high ankles support, are waterproof or water-resistant and are non-skid / have a sole with good traction (good for both rocky terrain and wet boat decks). It is good if they are worn-in as it is not ideal to break in brand new shoes and have blisters on the first day.

  • comfort footwear

    We recommend supportive sneakers/running shoes, that you will use on arrival and departure day, as well as for the evenings.

Other gear

  • 60-80 litre backpack or duffle bag

    It is recommended to pack your gear in a backpack. Many of the towns have simple dirt- or rocky roads which are not exactly ideal for pulling luggage with wheels. If you do not own a backpack, prefer a duffle bag over a hard shell suitcase.

  • 20-30 litre daypack

    For maximum versatility, it is recommended to bring a small daypack to hold an extra layer or two and your water bottle during short excursions.

  • sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses, base-cap

    In summer in Greenland, the midnight sun is out 24 hours a day. Couple this never-ending daylight with the fact that there are no trees for shade - as well as with the reflection off the water and nearby icebergs - and you’ve got yourself the equation for some fierce sun exposure. It is recommended to bring sunscreen, lip balm and sunglasses, and, if you like, a hat with a visor.

  • bug repellant, head net & after bite

    The Arctic summer is notorious for small pesky insects like mosquitos and flies. They will not be a problem when sailing, but once we hit land, they’ll surely find us soon enough. Only a light breeze will give natural respite from the bugs. It is recommended to bring bug repellent, after bite and a mosquito head net. Not very fashionable, but oh-so-functional. Please note: it should be possible to purchase bug repellent in the local Pisiffik grocery store, pending product availability, however it will be the strong, chemical, non- environment-friendly stuff. If you prefer a natural-based product, you should bring your own.

  • water bottle

    Make sure you stay hydrated. So it is recommended to bring your own water bottle or CamelBak to fill up with the freshest, cleanest, tastiest water you can find at convenient streams and waterfalls - or at the faucet, if you want to be like the rest of the world.

  • camera/binoculars

    There’s going to be no less than 10,000 amazing things to see and remember - icebergs that look different from every angle, diving whale flukes, flocks of birds gathering around a fishing boat for free giveaways, small colourful houses perched at the edge of the hill and the world and fantastic geological rock formations. It is recommended to bring whatever camera or looking device you wish, whether that’s a smartphone, snazzy camera, or selfie stick.

In case you have any further questions regarding the equipment to bring to the tour please do not hesitate to contact us.

Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Iceland - Reykjavik

Your Arctic adventure is about to get going. After arrival in Keflavik, you will pick up your rental car at the airport and head to the vibrant capital city Reykjavik. There, a Greenland Tours representative welcomes you for a briefing about your self drive. Having received a detailed road book, with all the practical information and maps, you will be more than ready to dive into your Iceland adventure. Get prepped for the days to come and join the buzzing street life of downtown Reykjavik. Overnight in Reykjavik.

Day 2: Golden Circle incl. Þingvellir, Gullfoss & Geysir

Today you depart for the famous Golden Circle, first stepping back deep into history and geology at Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is where the Icelandic parliament, the Althing, has met for centuries, and where two tectonic plates drift apart causing a great lava arena in a rift valley with huge fissures, such as Almannagjá. You continue to the geothermal area, where the famous Geysir is situated, from which all spouting hot springs take their name. Only a few minutes drive from there is Gullfoss, the Golden Waterfall, Iceland’s most iconic and beloved waterfall - feeling the raw power of Hvítá’s cascading deluge of water. Overnight in Hella or Skógar.

Day 3: South Coast incl. Skógafoss, Dyrhólaey & Vík

This day is devoted to discover the beautiful south coast of Iceland with all its magnificent sights. Follow our advise and start early, as there are many places calling to be explored by you. Do not miss to stop at the spectacular waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the black beach of Reynisfjara near Vík and the impressive cliffs of Dyrhólaey (closed until June 25th). All this is beautifully framed by the shimmering glacier volcanoes of Eyjafjallajökull and Myrdalsjökull, looming large along the coast. Overnight in Kirkjubæjarklaustur or near Skaftafell.

Day 4: Skaftafell National Park & Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Our recommended stop of the day is the gorgeous Skaftafell Nature Reserve, situated just below the mighty Vatnajökull Glacier. The reserve offers various hiking routes, including a two hour loop, which takes you to the dramatic waterfall Svartifoss. Driving further along the southern road will take you to Svínafellsjökull, that has served many blockbuster movies, such as Game of Thrones, Star Wars or Batman, as icy backdrop.

Next stop on the list is a big one - the ever changing Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Here, massive chunks of ice calve from the glacier edge and float across the lagoon in a truly awe-inspiring scene. The melting icebergs wash up on the black sand shore near the lagoon, creating an exceptional sight - also known as Diamond Beach. Overnight in Skaftafell or Jökulsárlón area.

Day 5: East Fjords - Egilsstaðir

Passing the fishing town Höfn, you will soon wind your way through the calming East Fjords. Here, nature is always close and the scenery breathtaking. On your way towards Egilsstaðir, you will encounter coastlines, narrow fjords, waterfalls and mountains. You will stay overnight in the Egilsstadir area, which is situated on the shore of the Lögurinn Lake.

Day 6: Waterfall Dettifoss & Lake Mývatn

Get a glimpse of the Icelandic Highlands as you travel north across the vast desert area Möðrudalsöræfi. Approaching north, stop first at the mighty Dettifoss, Iceland's most powerful waterfall that plunges 44 meters into a gorge below. We also recommend to scout the impressive horseshoe shaped Asbyrgi canyon in Vatnajökull National Park´s northern rim, before continuing to the lovely fishing town of Húsavík. Overnight in Húsavík.

Day 7: Lake Mývatn

Use the day to discover the highlights of Lake Mývatn. This area is full to the brim with things to marvel at. Walk among the weird lava formations at Dimmuborgir, hike up the nearby crater Hverfjall and visit the bubbling blue-grey mud pools, sulfur pits and roaring steam vents at Námaskarð. Make sure you stop at Mývatn Nature Bath, being the perfect place for you to relax. Overnight in Mývatn area.

Day 8: Akureyri & Skagafjörður

Continuing through North Iceland, you will soon reach Goðafoss, the majestic “Waterfall of the Gods”, before arriving at the town of Akureyri. Roam its charming city center to find cool cafés, quality restaurants and a handful of art galleries. Continuing your drive eastwards through Skagafjörður, the valley of the horse breeders, we recommend to visit the beautifully restored farm museum at Glaumbær, housed in original turf buildings, as well as the turf church in Víðimýri. Overnight in Varmahlið.

Day 9: Borgarfjörður incl. Reykholt & Hraunfossar - Reykjavik

This day will take you back to the nation's heart - Reykjavik. On your way to the capital you will drive through the fertile farming district of Borgarfjörður. Here you visit the enormous Deildartunguhver, the most powerful hot spring in Europe, yielding 200 litres of boiling water per second. If you fancy a bit of culture, the historic Reykholt, home of 13th century historian and writer Snorri Sturluson, is just around the corner. Thereafter, the beautiful Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls are a must-see. A final drive takes you along Hvalfjörður "Whale Fjord" or, if preferred, it is possible to cross the fjord through the tunnel under the sea (toll ca. ISK 1.000). Overnight in Reykjavík.

Day 10: Flight to Ilulissat, Greenland - Evening Iceberg Sailing

After dropping the car off at the airport, you continue your Arctic adventure by flying to Greenland's northwest coast. After settling into your accommodation in Ilulissat, you will join an iceberg sailing cruise in the evening. Have your camera ready to capture massive sculptures made of ice. Those majestic icebergs were calving from the UNESCO Icefjord Sermeq Kujalleq, which is the most productive glacier of the Northern Hemisphere. We keep fingers crossed for you, there is a chance to see whales on this boat trip. You will spend the night in Ilulissat.

Day 11: Guided walk at Ilulissat Icefjord and Sermermiut

Coming all the way to Greenland, we need to make sure that you get to marvel at all the icebergs you came here to see. And you do not mean the small ones, you are looking for the massive ones. Certainly the best place to do that is the Ilulissat Icefjord. Standing at this UNESCO world heritage site will make you feel small and humble. An endless amount of ice is pushing down from the glacier Sermeq Kujalleq, where ice is calving constantly, towards the sea, creating those majestic icebergs floating in Disko Bay. You will also stop at Sermermiut, an abandoned Inuit settlement, which had been used by Saqqaq, early Dorset and Thule cultures. Your guide will provide you with exciting insights into Inuit culture. Overnight in Ilulissat.

Day 12: Free day in Ilulissat

Today the adventure is yours. You have the chance to make this trip your very own and choose from our optional tours, wether you are looking into a sightseeing trip or more active outings. Take a boat tour to the impressive and constantly calving Eqi glacier, visit an old Inuit settlement or try kayaking in Disko Bay among icebergs (have a look at our suggestions in the options). Overnight in Ilulissat.

Day 13: Free day in Ilulissat

It is tough to choose between all those fantastic options we offer in and around Ilulissat. Therefore, we thought it is good, you have another free day in Ilulissat. Let's customise! Overnight in Ilulissat.

Day 14: Flight back to Reykjavik / Copenhagen

It's sad but true, time to head home. From Ilulissat airport you have the possibility to fly back to Reykjavik/Iceland or Copenhagen/Denmark.
