Geologic Formation Nature / Park
One of the northernmost World Heritage Sites, Ilulissat Icefjord not only amazes with its natural beauty, but also provides significant insight into the planet's history of climate change. The best way to appreciate and explore the sea mouth of one of the planet's fastest glaciers is to approach it in phases. Start with a panoramic view from a helicopter or a plane, and then sail between the towering icebergs before setting foot on a single one. While hiking along marked trails, listen to the crash of waves and colliding frozen masses. Around midnight, the shimmering white and blue surface turns into golden shades. Put Ilulissat Icefjord at the forefront of your travel plans using our Qaasuitsup Municipality vacation route planner.
