Eqi Glacier is the only glacier in the Ilulissat area where the amazing sight of the glacier "calving" or giving birth to new icebergs occurs. Stay at Camp Eqi, where you can witness this unique sight just outside your window! During your stay in the camp you can take some great hikes, or just relax and enjoy the views.
