Ilulissat Icefiord - a UNESCO site in Greenland
The Ilulissat Icefjord is probably the most visited and popular attraction in Greenland. Not only because of its obvious beauty but because it is so easy to reach by foot, boat or helicopter.
Located on the west coast of Greenland, 300 km north of the Arctic Circle in Disco Bay, you will find these breathtaking icebergs that are often pictured on film. The icebergs break off the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier and plunge into the app. 60 km fjord. The current transports the icebergs to the mouth of the fjord, where they often strand on underwater moraines.
The glacier is the fastest in the world and the Ilulissat Icefjord has been a UNESCO site since 2004. The site can be visited all year, in summer and winter. On foot, you can reach the enormous icebergs in only 30 minutes and you can see them from almost anywhere in town.
