Highlight of Western Greenland Trip

Wonderful experience although the guide did not add anything to the visuals. Could have had a greater educational experience.

I went a few times thru the fjord and it is amazing all the time, keeps changing and you can see whales and seals as well. Not that this needs a review since everyone will sail thru here, just dress warmly and have a full battery, you will take a million photos.

You will have the opportunity to go trought the huge amount of icebergs with a local small ferry... the silence, the sun, the ice, the blue sea, the noise of the cameras taking pictures... and the vastity of the glacier just in front of you. One of the most exiting experiences of life.

It's an absolute wonder of nature we dreamed of experiencing ourselves after looking at amazing photos, reading why UNESCO designated it as a world heritage site and checking the incredible image on google earth. At the time we saw it with our own eyes, we were... More

One of the most impressive experiences we've had on our many travels - and the three well marked routes (yellow, red and blue) are highly recommended

If you are fortunate enough to visit Ilulissat in North Greenland make sure you do yourself a favour and visit the Heritage listed Icefjord. There are tours out to the site however it is a easy walk from town. The views will take your breath away. There are also lots of sled dogs to view on the road to the... More

3 trails and not for the infirmed. Steps and rocks but incredibly beautiful views and glaciers. You may want to bring a lunch from the local grocery store and walk all the trails over two days. Breathtaking!!!
