Took 6 hours on the boat in total and two hours just watching it to calve, it was nice but have seen enough icebergs and glaciers in the first day, not really surprised because I can see it everywhere in Greenland.

Noisy and continually calving this place is a must see on your trip to Greenland. The experience is something really special.

The boat ride is worth it, no question about that. Ilulissat, the Icefjord and the area, are quite simply one of the most amazing things on this planet. The Danish guides were very friendly and helpful, but how come there were no local Greenlandic guides...More

This is a long day trip. The boat ride can get very cold, so dress in many layers! The views are lovely and the glacier is spectacular. We enjoyed this trip very much. We saw lots of whales too!
