  • Notices

    Ice conditions dictate how far the excursion boat can go into Qooroq Icefjord.

We sail to the underwater moraine at the mouth of theQooroq Ice Fjord. Many icebergs run aground here, forcing us to weave our way among these colossal pieces of ice until we reach the fjord, where we are rewarded with a breathtaking view of thousands of icebergs, sheer cliff faces and an enormous glacier. The glacier calves about 200,000 tons of ice at day into the fjord. Many of these icebergs have a rich turquoisecolour. In the fjord, we have time to enjoy the panorama, turn off the engine and drift quietly with the current. The absolute silence is only interrupted by the sound of the distant icebergs as they break free from the glacier front and come crashing down into the fjord. On the trip, we gather ice for our cocktails and listen to the popping sounds as countless, tiny thousand-year-old compressed air bubbles escape from the ice cubes in our glasses.
