In Ilulissat, you can’t ignore the dynamic and gigantic ice sculptures looming just outside of town, because even if you lose sight of them, you can hear the constant ice cracking in the distance. So why not have a closer look at these beautiful ice giants waiting for you in the icefjord? Most of the icebergs come from the fastest-moving glaciers in the world, but a close-up view of the icefjord will slow the world down for you and leave you humbled. Walk with us to enjoy this natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hike takes you by the abandoned settlement of Sermermiut and old Inuit graves, now overgrown by the lush flora.
