The Sounds of Silence

Being amidst the icebergs offers an auditory experience too. The profound silence, occasionally punctuated by the distant rumble of a calving glacier or the gentle lapping of waves against ice, is as haunting as it is soothing.

Safety and Respect

While these drifting marvels are a sight to behold, the safari is conducted with utmost respect for nature and its unpredictable elements. Expert guides ensure that visitors maintain a safe distance while providing insightful commentary on the formation, movement, and significance of these ice giants.

For the Inuit people, the sea ice and icebergs have always been an integral part of their life and culture, offering transportation routes and hunting grounds. An iceberg safari often intertwines with tales of local legends, folklore, and the Inuit’s profound connection to this icy realm.
