Ilulissat is quite famous and thus very touristy, but if you go early enough then you'll beat the crowds. It is quite a long walk to the viewpoint, but it's an easy walk... Wooden platform all the way (unless you go out on the rocks...More
This is probably known as THE sight to see from Ilulissat, and a World Heritage Site to boot - the fjord is absolutely crammed with ice from the glacier at the head of it, trapped there as larger icebergs get held by the shallow mouth...More
The icefjord is exactly where the Sermermiut (Old Eskimo Settlement) located.
Don't waste your money on tour, just do it yourself. The location is available in Google Maps gps. Walk from Ilulissat town for about 20-30 minutes.
This is a must-do activity in Ilulissat. You...More
I’ve been to over one hundred countries and seen all kinds of sights, but the view over the ice fiord from the end of the boardwalk is the most awe-inspiring I have ever experienced. It is breathtaking and should not be missed if you are...More
There are various ways to see the Kangia Icefjord - all of them stunning. The three best are first, to take a flight over the Fjord up to the Greenland Icecap - the sheer immensity of it is both exhilarating and scary. The second -...More
Impressive views from Arctic Hotel and from the hikes in Ilulissat. Beautiful icebergs and 2hales everywhere, just amazing. The boat ride from Iluminaq to Ilulissat is absolutely breathtaking. Hopefully you get a boat where you can be outside filming the ride through the icebergs. Just...More
This ice fjord produces the greatest amount of icebergs in the Northern hemisphere. There are two ways to see this : by zodiac cruising offshore amongst the icebergs, or, hiking on land through a boardwalk path to the ice fjord. Both ways are a must....More

I booked flights, accommodation and day trips by myself. It is easy to arrange. The time I went last year, only AirGreenland operated from Copenhagen to Greenland. There were 3 tour companies in Iluslissat and a few accommodations/hotels to choose. The town is small but has everything you need. There are Germans, Dans, Thais, Philippines settled there. Most young locals speak English.
If you decide to arrange the whole trip by yourself, I recommend to do day trips with Tourist Nature. It is a smaller company and a good way to avoid big groups of tourists. World of Greenland is a big company so they use bigger and more modern boats/vans for cruising trips or transfers. You can find their emails on their websites. Both companies will reply you quickly.
For accommodation, I stayed at Ice Fjord apartment (part of Ice Fjord Hotel) and booked via Booking com. It is a collection of studio apartments located in town centre where you can walk less than 3mins to Tourists Nature and World of Greenland offices, shops and supermarkets. Very basic studio apartment, clean, powerful heating system and they offer free airport pick up/drop off. Although, there is no telephone line at the apartment or room service but mobile phone works and don't bother with room service, go hiking, see amazing ice fjord, enjoy the nature and live like locals. I find this town is very peaceful and is a real get away from busy city lifestyle.
