They were instrumental in hauling us around during our research in August 2022. They picked us up promptly at the airport. They would arrive usually on time and never left us or forgot about us. It is well run. And visiting the glacier was the best experience I've ever had.

We were a group of 6 (three couples) passing through Greenland. We did Qooroq Ice Fjord tour (fabulous!) and then the next day we did the Qassiarsuk (Brattahlid) tour .. all by boat. I would recommend both.
In between we stayed at the Igaliku Byfdehotel which was also great.
I would highly recommend this tour group! We did just two short tours with them, but on their website they offer many other multi-day trips

Blue Ice Explorer is an excellent company. Claus, Andrea, and Aleksander were so helpful during our days in Narsarsuaq. We had a lot of filming to do, and they made accommodations to help us accomplish all of our goals. They kept us safe and comfortable on the water and made all our boat trips around the area very exciting. They also gave us helpful recommendations of things to do in southern Greenland and were extremely knowledgeable about the local area. Look no further for a fantastic experience in Greenland!

We booked a 5 day trip in southern Greenland with Blue Ice Explorer. All of our pickups and boat connections to the various locations were prompt. It was a great experience. A special thanks to Andrea, Alexander, Niels, Anna and the boat captains! The highlights were the Qooroq Ice Fjord and Hvalsey. We later flew to Nuuk on our own before heading home. Beware that flight cancellations are common in the area and we were delayed one day heading to Nuuk. Southern Greenland and Blue Ice are well worth it.

Had a great time in South Greenland, staying 6 nights at 3 separate locations. Hotels were all reasonable or very good. Travel arrangements (by small boat) all worked out fine although some of the arrangements got changed at short notice.

We booked this tour on May 31, 2018 online for 2500 DKK plus a 74.67 DKK booking fee. The tour operator cancelled the tour on Sept. 5th due to rough seas. They returned our 2500 tour cost but they retained our booking fee. For all of the people in our group, that booking fee added up for them. I tried to contact them twice, but to no avail. Based on other reviews, the operator may offer a good tour, but consumer cooperation is not their strong suit. Since the tour operator cancelled the tour, they should be responsible for refunding the entire amount paid.

I reached Greenland for 2 reasons,
Kayaking expedition and Hiking
Unfortunately the arrangements for the Kayaking part were done with Blue Ice.
I traveled in many places around the globe and this is the first time I encounter a manager in such a company that do not like to give a service to his clients. ( We were in Narsarsuaq ). Unreachable over the phone and give you the filling of unwonted.
In such a place without proper communication and lack of alternatives a traveler expect availability and willingness to help. In some places they call it "face to the customer".
I am not talking about the outrages prices I am talking only about lack of service. Especially in a place that the common word for if something will happened is "MAYBY ".
Next time I will go to Greenland for sure I will chose another company.

Having carried out a detailed desktop on how best to get around Greenland and received some disappointing feedback from some tour operators on what could be included in a tour, Blue Ice Explorer where approached and a tour of South Greenland booked.
A number of emails were sent to Blue Ice to clarify certain aspects of the Towns and Settlements tour and on every occasion those emails were answered promptly. After travelling 17,000 klms to Greenland and completing the tour all expectations of what the tour might deliver were realised.

The four locations for accommodation - Narsaq, Qaqortoq, Igaliku and Narsarsauq provide excellent and different experiences but in each location and during the transfer the Blue Ice staff provided outstanding service and assistance with information and history of the area.

In my view, the tour had been carefully designed by Blue Ice and as a tourist it was possible to have an amazing experience. Congratulations to everyone who played a part in the development and delivery of this tour.

Poor cooperation and poor assistance in rising, unexpected, problems.
Although promised, was not available to answer to emergency satellite call when we needed to evacuate a sick man.
Very impolite behavior when we had accommodation difficulties.

We had been planning a two week trip to various parts of Greenland for a few months. I had emailed Blue Ice a few times with questions to no response so finally we placed a call to see what the issue was. The answer was - yes I do remember getting emails from you but we do not have anything available for those dates.

Well, we went ahead and when in Narsaq we visited the local tourist outpost - she said sure we can arrange the tour to Qaqortoq the next day and guess who it was on - Blue Ice... the boats themselves are fine, the crew friendly but do not use email to try and get information...
