Frankly astonishing and something you will not experience anywhere else on the Planet. Go on the boat trip to get to see them close up, however the walks are also fabulous

Ilulissat Icefjord is the most beautiful place I've ever seen!!! From the first view from the air upon landing to Ilulissat that was unbelievable, to the second from the yellow hiking trail we took just outside the Ilulissat powerplant. Third was during the dogsledding tour on a early cold March morning, to the fourth on an old fishing boat that... More

One must complement the boat trip to see icebergs close up with a trek to the mouth of the Icefjord. Majestic. Having the very nice, and well informed, tour guide from World of Greenland near by to ask questions made it all the more memorable.

Gliding past the Ilulissat Icefjord was magical during the day and by the midnight sun. There's a wordless serenity when sailing past such magnificance. I feel privileged to have experienced these sites.

I flew over the glacier ( the greenland ice sheet ) and observed many areas of melting. It only confirmed what scientists have been telling us... we need to pay attention. nevertheless, the views are breathtaking, the walks wonderful, the hotel... More

One of the most memorable experiences of my life. Should be on anyone's "to-do-list-before-I-die!" You feel very small in this vast, quiet fjord of icebergs.

defies words, must experience and pics don't do it justice- sit, watch, soak it in - the light and ice constantly shift and change.
