Owner description: This massive and fast-moving glacier travels more that 100 feet per day, dropping huge icebergs into its narrow coastal inlets.

“amazing!!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

a most amazing place... sailing among the icebergs, getting close to the glaciers... a once in a lifetime experience. 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 quite lovely.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

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.

“must see”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

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

“Breathtaking experience”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

All three recommended walks (yellow, red and blue) are wonderful and with exceptional views. The landscape and the icebergs are beautiful and bigger than you can imagine! These walks shouldn't be missed at all when you are in Ilulissat! The paths are well marked, so you can't get lost. However it's recommendable to have a map with you to have an idea how long it may take, as you will often stop and enjoy the views, so it might easily take longer than you planned. Even when the weather is not 100% clear - this is hard to predict there and it may change rapidly - don't worry: even few views already worth the whole trip. We had our 2-year-old son with us: no problem with a suitable backpack. The first part of the blue path, starting from the old Heliport in Ilulissat, is very easy to walk and leads to one of the best viewpoints, so even if you are weak by walking you can do it without problem. In our view the Ilulissat Icefjord is one of the highlights worldwide.

“Illulissat”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Spectacular scenery; walk on polar icecap; amazing experience. We came by cruise ship and there are not too many other ways to do this.
