Absolutely perfect day trip to eqi glacier with Ivan. We spend a lit longer at the stunning glacier than planned, and because we had time for it and would love to see more of the coastline, we did a lot of detours to explore the coastline on the way back. Ivan is a great guide and super friendly, the trip in the boat really lets you experience the impressing scale og nature.Safety was a top priority, the boat modern and had all possile saftey features and Ivan clearly new how to navigate safely that made it so easy to relax and enjoy. Would definitely choose greenland backcountry again!

Greenland and especially Ilulissat was just surreal and out of this world. Ivan made the experience much more enriched with his familiarity and his positive attitude and wit. Thank you

I went for a whale sightseeing trip and it was fantastic! The guide told us many interesting facts about Greenland, the boat had excellent safety equipment and we spent amazing time searching for whales. And we did find some! The guide was very friendly and helpful arranging what I needed. Outstanding service.
