We made 2 hikes among the icefiord. A mix of blue and red and the yellow one (best one) It takes about 1-1h30 hour, but the look outs are unique.

Stunning, overwhelming, breathtaking ... the Ilulissat Icefjord and the Kangerlua glacier, an UNESCO world heritage site, makes you speechless no question. The glacier advances some 40 m per day (!) on a width of 12 km ... feeding enormous amounts of ice into the Icefjord and further down into Disko Bay ... just amazing

Walked from Hotel Icefjord on the yellow marked path out in the Icefjord. The walk starts with a a big staircase, and continues over the rocks. Had a beautiful view over the newly formed enourmous icebergs now starting their journey into the sea. Fantastic nature

Visit this area in June, during the midnight sun and low mosquito season. The light is amazing, and perfect for photographers.

A must do item on Ilulissat. You can take a day or evening boat trip to get there. We did both but find day time is more beautiful since more cloudy on evening om our date

An easy walk to truly unrivaled scenery. Boardwalk from the edge of town, well marked and well maintained.

We are seasoned travellers and have been to many countries, including Iceland, but this is the most incredible, amazing scenery we have ever seen. Beautiful, peaceful and tranquil.I will never forget this and have hundreds of photos to remind me!
