There are things that you absolutely have to see at least once in your life. One of them, without a doubt, is the Aurora Borealis. First, one must find the best place to see the Northern Lights. Lucky for you, we know where that is. We’ve even designed an excursion around it. We invite you to witness this natural phenomenon in its entire splendor in the stunning town of Ilullisat.
Ilulissat is known for its landscapes as well as its unique location next to UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kangia Icefjord. This is perfect in that it creates an optimal environment for sky watching! Watch the incredible landscape change colour as the sky becomes gratified by the best light show on Earth. The Northern Lights dance before your eyes, making your head spin with wonder.
Secondly, the nocturnal landscapes in Ilulissat are not just something to be seen but also to be felt. The magic begins after just a few steps. This town incites you to move away from the population and avoid the glare of the lights. Your snowshoes will provide you with the comfort and security needed to fully appreciate the experience you have just begun. Soon you will find yourself walking beside giant icebergs, under a bright, luminous sky. Imagine witnessing the Aurora Borealis with Disko Bay at your feet. Imagine this while you savour deep silence and the pure air.

Thirdly, we must warn you that everything we’ve just described pales in comparison to what you will actually experience. So get ready.
We continue to enjoy the night’s show from our mountain hut, which is close by and gives us the luxury of a warm tea or coffee with snacks. Next, a bus will take us back to the city centre, while the Aurora Borealis will still be in our sights.
Also keep in mind that no experience is needed for this trip. Our team of experts will explain everything as well as take care of the logistics. You will have experienced qualified guides with you at all times. Groups are limited to 8 people. We take only few guests at a time in order to offer maximum sensations with a personal and intimate experience.
Are you ready? We are.
