This massive and fast-moving glacier travels more that 100 feet per day, dropping huge icebergs into its narrow coastal inlets.

We made 2 hikes among the icefiord. A mix of blue and red and the yellow one (best one) It takes about 1-1h30 hour, but the look outs are unique.

Stunning, overwhelming, breathtaking ... the Ilulissat Icefjord and the Kangerlua glacier, an UNESCO world heritage site, makes you speechless no question. The glacier advances some 40 m per day (!) on a width of 12 km ... feeding enormous amounts of ice into the Icefjord...More

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

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.

I am not sure which boat you will be on, but it could be a fisherman's boat. When we were there we had to climb down a latter to get on board. So it could be a bit tricky for you.
