Walked from Hotel Icefjord on the yellow marked path out in the Icefjord. The walk starts with a a big staircase, and continues over the rocks. Had a beautiful view over the newly formed enourmous icebergs now starting their journey into the sea. Fantastic nature

Visit this area in June, during the midnight sun and low mosquito season. The light is amazing, and perfect for photographers.

A must do item on Ilulissat. You can take a day or evening boat trip to get there. We did both but find day time is more beautiful since more cloudy on evening om our date

An easy walk to truly unrivaled scenery. Boardwalk from the edge of town, well marked and well maintained.

We are seasoned travellers and have been to many countries, including Iceland, but this is the most incredible, amazing scenery we have ever seen. Beautiful, peaceful and tranquil.I will never forget this and have hundreds of photos to remind me!

After landing in Ilulissat our first hike took us the Icefjord and what a sight !! It is quite hard to describe with words but it is simply stunning and gigantic. Sitting and listening the sounds of the ice cracking was just amazing.

During my stay with my daughter in 2011, we surely didn’t miss the two-and-a-half-hour tour with the boat in the Disko Bay! It was amazing to see this UNESCO Word Heritage Site since 2004.
