When you're in Ilulissat you won't forget that you have a dynamic and gigantic ice sculpture gallery waiting for you just outside the town since, even though you might not be able to see, you can almost always hear the ice cracking in the distance. So why not have a closer look at these beautiful ice giants waiting for us in the icefjord? Even though most of the icebergs come from the fasted moving glaciers in the world getting a close-up view of the icefjord will slow the world down for you and leave you humbled. Walk with us to enjoy this World Heritage natural site. The hike takes you by the abandoned settlement of Sermermiut and old Inuit graves, now overgrown by the lush flora.
