Walk to the Icefjords
Available all year
Enjoy hiking in spectacular surroundings.
Great views of the Jakobshavn Glacier and Ilulissat Icefjord with its many icebergs.
See the remains of the old settlement of Sermermiut
See abundant colorful local flora.
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.
Walking information: The last 1,5 km is on a wooden boardwalk. Short steepish rock sections toward the end.
Wheelchair accessible: Not suitable for wheelchair users after the end of the boardwalk – until then possible.
