Full-day Adventure on the Ice Sheet

Venture deep into a white wonderland

Full-day Adventure on the Ice Sheet

The opportunity to simply set foot on the Greenland Ice Sheet is a great experience, but to walk amid its white emptiness on a mini expedition is truly an unbeatable adventure. 

In this exciting full-day excursion, we will have 8 hours to explore the Greenland Ice Sheet.

Few people venture onto the ice sheet, yet so much more awaits only a little deeper within, where a great ice landscape unfolds! On this excursion, we will wander among the hills and valleys, and eventually find ourselves surrounded by crystal blue streams, rivers, waterfalls and lakes - all formed by melt water from the ice.

Equipped with crampons and hiking poles, walking across the ice sheet is still a bit more challenging than trekking across hilly terrain, but you will manage the technique after a little instruction from our guides. Hiking on the ice sheet is no more challenging than trekking across hilly terrain and all levels of experience are welcome to join. With 500 meters of ancient ice compacted beneath our feet, we will wander through the arctic desert in pursuit of the ideal spot to enjoy lunch. Here, the drinking water comes directly from the glacial lake!

During our drive to and from the Greenland Ice Sheet, we will pass through serene arctic landscapes, which are home to reindeer, musk oxen and many varied species of arctic birds and plant life.

Be sure to bring personal gear for the hike, including sunglasses, sunscreen, a warm jacket and hiking boots suitable for crampons.
