Compare The Giant Eqi Glacier & Tiny Rodebay Settlement (For Non-Cruise Travellers)
Enter the town of icebergs, and you can find plenty of excursions involving ice. Experience a well-preserved Inuit culture and behold the vast glacier during this excursion. Glacier, icebergs and ice fjord are the trademarks of Ilulissat. Also, catch the sight of whales during your voyage.
Combine the local life with amazing view!
Transfer to the harbour with your Ilulissat tour guide.
Depart from the harbour and will sail towards the 5-km wide Eqi glacier. (Lots of photo opportunities)
Try to spot whales in the area between Ilulissat and Rodebay and hopefully, the gentle giants of the sea will appear.
Stand on the boat in front of Eqi glacier wall, and you will truly experience the illusion that the world ends right here. (Eqi means “edge” in Greenlandic.)
During the excursion, also visit the tiny settlement of Rodebay. As estimated in 2019, Rodebay is home to only 37 residents. Small as it is, Rodebay has a kindergarten, a church, one grocery store and everything one needs to live a peaceful and delightful life. It is a nice place to experience the Arctic lifestyle.
Here, savour enjoy dinner at a local restaurant.
Then, transfer back to end the tour.

The Traveler must possess a valid passport that is valid for at least a further six months following the end of the tour, as well as the documents necessary for the performance of the tour, including visa and certificate of required vaccinations. It is the traveler’s own duty to investigate and seek to obtain visa and entry permit conditions. The local tour operator can’t be held liable if travelers are rejected upon entry due to lack of visa or entry permit.
Greenland is not a member of Schengen but is only embraced by the Schengen Information System. This means that a Schengen visa does not provide entry to Greenland. When applying for a Danish visa, persons from countries that require a visa must therefore clearly state that the visa must also be valid for Greenland.
EU citizens’ national ID cards cannot be used as identification on entry to Greenland. These citizens must have their passport with them. Scandinavian citizens do not need to have their passport with them. However, they must bring photo ID pursuant to flight security rules. Refer to the Danish Immigration Service’s websitewww.nyidanmark.dk, where you can find more detailed information concerning countries that require a visa, visa rules, etc.
