Groenlandia


 

GROENLANDIA  2016

 

L’ ovest:  Ilulissat

La città degli iceberg  

 

Ilulissat significa “posto degli iceberg”. Qui enormi masse di ghiaccio si staccano dal ghiacciaio di Icecap e “parcheggiano” nella baia in attesa di altri iceberg che li spingano fuori oltre la barriera. Gli abitanti si dedicano alla pesca e alla caccia. In inverno queste attività vengono svolte con le slitte trainate dai cani. Per questo in Ilulissat si vedono più cani che persone. Un tocco di vera Groenlandia. E’ anche il posto ideale per effettuare tutte le più interessanti escursioni nella zona della Disko Bay

The location of Ilulissat is breathtaking - all year round huge icebergs raising more than hundred metres above sea level are stranded at the mouth of the fiord.
These icebergs are all products of the mighty and most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere; The Ilulissat Glacier daily gives birth to 20 million tons of ice which also explain why it is included on the World Heritage list.

 

I1: City Walk Ilulissat

During a walk through town the guide tells about the history of Ilulissat. We visit the old part of town and see buildings from the very start of the Danish trading station, the busy fishing harbour, the old church and the museum. Lunch at a local restaurant.

Duration: 4 hours (approx.)

 

I2: The Icebergs of Sermermiut

By bus as far as the road goes. A beautiful walk along the UNESCO designated Ilulissat Ice Fiord to Sermermiut where traces from the 3 old Eskimo cultures still can be seen. Sermermiut is a fertile valley next to the Ice Fiord; here you can enjoy the flowers as well as the fantastic icebergs.

Duration: 3 hours (approx.)

 

I3: Hunter's Settlement - Rodebay

By boat to the small settlement Oqaitsut/Rodebay with a local population of approx. 40 persons totally depending upon fishing and hunting - a quite different world compared to the nearby town of Ilulissat. Guided walk through the village before we will enjoy lunch at the old trading station.

Duration: 6 hours (approx.)

 

I4: Midnight Cruise to the Ice Fiord

The midnight sun and the warm red colours reflecting in the gigantic icebergs is a fantastic sight. Cruise between the icebergs and enjoy a late Martini on "the real rocks"!

Season for midnight sun is approx. 22may-24jul. Outside this season the excursion is operated as an evening cruise with the beautiful sunset reflecting over the icebergs.

Duration: 3 hours (approx.)

 

I5: By Helicopter to the Ice Cap

During the stay in Ilulissat the guide will try to arrange an excursion by helicopter - including a ground stop where you can leave the helicopter!

During the flight we cruise in low altitude over the Ilulissat Ice Fiord which is now on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Operation is depending on the weather and helicopter capacity. Only to be booked locally!

 

 

I6: Hunter's Settlement - Ilimanaq

By boat to the settlement of Ilimanaq, which is situated just south of the Kangia Ice Fiord. Ilimanaq has a population of approx. 80 persons mainly depending upon fishing and hunting. A completely different world compared to the town of Ilulissat. Upon arrival to Ilimanaq guided tour of the settlement before enjoying our lunch with a local family.Duration: 6 hours (approx.)

I7: Home Visit

Visit a Greenland home, enjoy the "Coffee-Mik" (a cup of coffee which by tradition is served to all visitors) and learn about Greenland and its population.

Duration: 2 hours (approx.)

 

I8: Eqip - The Calving Glacier

Eqip glacier is the only glacier in the Ilulissat area where we often experience a glacier calving. We cruise in front of the 5 km wide glacier - enjoying our lunch - and hope for the unique sight of an iceberg “delivery” - so are also a lot of seabirds as they know by experience, that any calving from the glacier will result in a huge meal, when the new iceberg is turning around in the water bringing a lot of sea animals to the surface.

Duration: 8 hours (approx.)

 

I9: Fishing tour

We sail to the fishing spot of the day, most probably near Bredebugt or at the mouth of the Ilulissat Ice Fiord. While waiting for our catch we have time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. By the end of the day we will hopefully bring home different sorts of fish like cod, halibut, redfish and catfish.

Duration: 4 hours (approx.)

 

I10: Feeding the huskies

Ilulissat is sledge-area and the approx. 3500 dogs in town are still used for both work and fun every winter. We invite you to join the feeding of a dog team. You can see, feel, touch and most of all hear the howling of 20 hungry dogs. The owner will demonstrate the sledge and the harness and tell about life as a sledge dog in Greenland. Good shoes advised!

Duration: 1 hour (approx.)

 

I11: Whale Safari

By boat we go out into the Disko Bay to spot whales. In the summer time humback whales come to the Disko Bay to feed on the capelin, a small herring-like fish. As the humback whales are protected they are very trusting and can often be enjoyed at close range. However, as this is not a zoo there is of course no guarantee for seeing the whales.

Duration: 5 hours (approx.)
