Whether it's culture or nature you're seeking, Greenland has the answer. Explore all that the country has to offer - from a cultural kaffemik to thrilling glacier visits.
The Icefjord Midnight Marathon is more than just a marathon - it's a journey through Greenland! Greenland offers an unbelievable number of attractions. Among others, you can take a kayak through the Icefjord, go on an 'air safari', or add an extension to camp on the ice cap itself!
Ilulissat is known as the capital of icebergs, and you will see why as we paddle our way through the gigantic ice fjord just south of the city. You can smoothly slice your way through the water while keeping your eyes open for whales - 15 species regularly inhabit Greenlandic waters in the summertime!
There will be morning guided kayak groups on several days. In the evenings, you can experience the serenity of the landscape as we calmly paddle our way among the “floating mountains under the extraordinary midnight sun.
Whether it is sunny or cloudy, the icebergs offer beautiful reflections – the sun will emphasize their sparkle, while clouds evoke the deep blue color of the ice. Your guides will provide information on the ice sheet and its glaciers, as well as the story of the original kayak that was made from sealskin and wood and will answer any other questions you may have.
Thanks to our certified kayak guides, modern equipment, and safety protocols, it is possible for you to paddle through this remarkable landscape. The tours are open to all levels, whether you are a master paddler or it’s your first time in a kayak. We take pride in providing a safe and comfortable experience for everybody, and want everyone to be able to experience the magic of floating among the largest collection of icebergs in Greenland.
