There are no words to describe how stunning this place is. It is why one goes to Greenland I suppose. Not to be missed

Just save every penny and come here. We stayed at the hotel Arctic, a short walk out of town. Amazing place. Plenty of tours out among the icebergs, to nearby settlements. Easy walk to the Icefjord. Chance to eat whale and seal.

we went to see it in a boat, and by walking (Sermermiut - Icefiord took 3 hours), both views are indescriptibly beautiful ! Photos can not render it to others, one should come and see it !

You may have seen many iceberg or glacier sceneries in documentary program, now you see it with your own eye, it is absolutely magnificent.

The most impressive collection of icebergs we've seen so far - huge, city-block sized chunks of glacier ice floating around the boat. You can not stop looking at (or, as the case may be, taking pictures of) the sheer endless variety of shapes, surfaces, spectacular and bizarre formations. Absolutely fabulous - definitely an item for your bucket list!

Hard to describe the magic of sailing among icebergs at midnight with the sun still high in the sky. We were there close to the summer solstice and the sky, clouds and icebergs were good to photograph. Be sure to be well wrapped up as you will want to spend as much time as possible on deck, and the wind... More

I have never seen anything like this - ice in all shapes and sizes - the ice has a different expression in different light. Just go and see for your self.

1. Try and get a room upstairs so you do not have to listen to all the people walking upstairs. 2. Food is pretty good. Service is a little slow but this town has it's own slow pace. 3. Nothing is free in Geeenland, especially WiFi. Plan on bringing some money if you need to stay connected. 4. Mosquitos are... More
