On winter evenings with clear sky, the beautiful northern lights often appear in Ilulissat. Going out to experience that natural phenomenon is a welcome break in your holiday which you shouldn't miss.

Are you worried about the cold temperatures? We are mindful that in winter the conditions can be demanding. Because of that our exclusive and heated hut is only 10 minutes away from town from where we can enjoy the northern lights into the wilderness.

No previous experience is required. Led by our guide and provided with a headlight and snowshoes you walk next to the gigantic icebergs, distanced enough from the city lights to enjoy the magic wonder of the northern lights.

The tour follows the Ilulissat Icefjord until it meets the Disko Bay. It takes 1,5 hours including an indoor and heated break in a hut drinking coffee or tea. Once there, we also scout the northern light through the window or from outside.

After the magnificent show and before the cold invades our astonished souls, we walk 10 minutes to reach the shuttle that drives us back to the center of Ilulissat.

Our office is in Kussangajaannguag and Fredericiap Aqq corner, in the center of Ilulissat.
