Ilulissat, the Town of Icebergs
Guaranteed departures open for individual bookings
"The Town of Icebergs"
Ilulissat is the Greenlandic word for "place with icebergs" and every visitor will immediately understand why this town is named so: All year round gigantic icebergs, coming from the Ilulissat glacier, are seen just outside of the town. The glacier is the most productive one in the northern hemisphere with a yearly production of 35 km3 of ice. In 2004 the glacier and the icefjord were listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
We offer Ilulissat arrangements 3 days or more and we also offer choice of accomodation from simple guesthouse to 4 star hotel.
