At Ilulissat Icefjord Centre we always do our utmost to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. We have therefore set the maximum number of visitors to 150, to give you the chance to immerse yourself in our exhibitions, as well as for fire safety reasons. In order to avoid coming in vain, we recommend that you use our booking system to buy your ticket. In this way you will be assured entry at the time that suits you.
Please be aware that a great many people wish to visit us in the summer season, so be sure to buy your ticket well in advance.
In the summer season and on days when there are many visitors, tickets to the exhibitions will be valid for 1½ hours, but you are of course welcome to stay longer in our cafe or enjoy the view from our roof.
Here you can find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. If you have a question which isn’t answered here, you are welcome to write to us.
No, you won’t lose your place if come at a different time than is printed on your ticket. Please be aware, however, that out of consideration for the next visitors you will not be allowed to stay longer in the exhibitions than the finish time, which is also printed on your ticket.
We therefore recommend that you arrive with time to spare. Any potential waiting time can be spent in the cafe or enjoying the beautiful view from our roof terrace, which is also a favourite spot for selfies.
