Flightseeing is the only way you can get close to and even step foot upon the glacier in Ilulissat. Departing from the city, you will get aerial views of Ilulissat town. You will fly into the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the vague contours of a white glacier in the distance soon become a behemoth body of ice with lots of shape and texture. Fly over the tongue of the glacier, and if you’re lucky you might see a calving, otherwise known as the birth of an iceberg as it breaks off into the sea. Finally, you will land on the glacier and have some free time walking around exploring the ice up close and personal. This is a memory for the sketchbooks and one that will not be easily forgotten.
Air Greenland offers memorable flightseeing tours in Kangerlussuaq, Ilulissat and Nuuk.
