Ilulissat Winter from Copenhagen

Ilulissat Winter 2019/2020



Town of icebergs

Ilulissat - A UNESCO World Heritage Site

Ilulissat means "icebergs" and no one visiting Ilulissat will wonder Ilusissat has this name: Gigantic  icebergs are stranded in the fjord all year round. The icebergs come from the Ilulissat Glacier which is  the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere with a yearly production of 35 km3 of ice. The glacier and the icefjord has been listed at the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2004.

Ilulissat is also the town of the huskies. Eventhough the town today is a modern arctic town offering all facilities, the huskies and the dogsleds are still the common means of transportation when travelling to the villages and when  hunters  go to and from the fishing grounds at the frozen fjord.

The Northern Lights - a bonus in the sky

The northern lights add an extra bonus to the  winter guests as they will not be charged for this amazing experience. All it takes is a clear sky in dark surroundings with as little lightpollution possible. Northern lights are a part  of Greenland´s characteristica and fill up the night with myths, magic and a quite unique atmosphere.
