JAV4RKV: Ilulissat- Images of Ice / 4 days
Departures from Reykjavik

This tour is the perfect introduction to Arctic nature and the Inuit culture. Ilulissat - the town of icebergs - offers dramatic views of the World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord. Experience the traditional Inuit culture combined with modern life north of the Polar Circle.

Ilulissat

Ilulissat is Greenlandic for ‘Icebergs’, and this charming town with 4600 inhabitants 200 kilometres north of the Polar Circle is indeed one of the best places in the world for seeing gigantic, nature-made sculptures break off rugged glaciers and start their final journey towards the open sea.

Summer in Ilulissat is a feast of adventures; make the most of your time there by going on hikes in the Arctic nature not far from town, experience helicopter safaris over the UNESCO designated ice fjord and sail out to remote settlements where everyday life still is heavily influenced by ancient traditions. Relax in the evenings on Midnight Sun Cruises in the fjord, watching the icebergs bathing in the rays of the never-setting sun, whilst enjoying a drink ‘on the real rocks’.

Even a short stay in Ilulissat offers plenty of opportunity to explore the Arctic country side, learn about ancient Inuit traditions and – of course – marvel at the icebergs by the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord.
