Ilulissat - town of icebergs

 "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.
