I first saw the icefiord one sunny day from the airplane. It is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. We took a boat trip among the icebergs; a fascinating excursion.

Seeing the ice fiord, walking alongside it and sailing among the iceberg has been one of the greatest travel experiences I've ever had. It's incredible beautiful and the area is wonderful for hiking - and sailing of course.

Were I to compile bucket-lists, the Illulisat Icefjord would have been at the very top. It is a remarkable sight, awe-inspiring in its form, and absolutely a dramatic experience. Anyone travelling to Greenland shoudl try and make this experience happen!

One suspect that the iceberg that sank the Titanic was formed in that bay. ON a cruise in Greenland and Northern Canada, we spent one days in Illulisat. I took a on walk for about 5 hours along the entire coast where the icebergs accumulate and crack before going at sea. I followed the longest path on the map. I... More

I visited Ilullisat recently while on a Quark ship, and we had the best part of a day here. I very much enjoyed the boardwalk walk, looking out to see the tiny fisherman's boats amongst the enormous ice bergs, able to have a good look at the tundra vegetation alongside the path, visiting the museum and looking at the colours...

This is an absolute must when visiting Ilulissat! You can either walk about 45 minutes (great view over the icefjord) or take a boat trip. I too the walk :) The view is really breathtaking - it is truely impossible to descripe it. Go and see for yourself :)

My wife and I had only one afternoon in this town, when our Adventure Canada cruise ship brought us over from northern Canada and along the western coast of Greenland. The UNESCO World Heritage site is one of the greatest places in the world to see. The icebergs and glaciers are amazing. We enjoyed walking along the long boardwalk to... More
