Ilulissat Icefjord

There are so many incredible photos… it is very difficult to choose…. This is Ilulissat Icefjord which is located 250 km north of the Arctic Circle and is the biggest natural attraction in Greenland. Owing to gigantic icebergs, the glacier flows at a rate of 20-35 m per day, resulting in around 20 billion tones of icebergs. In 2004 was admitted onto UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

It has been the object of scientific attention for 250 years and is today at the centre of the huge international focus on global warming thanks to extensive media coverage.

The ice-stream is one of the fastest (19m per day) and most active in the world. Its annual calving of over 35km³ of ice accounts for 10% of the production of all Greenland calf ice, more than any other glacier outside Antartica. The glacier has significantly added to the understanding of ice-cap glaciology, climate change and related geomorphic processes.

All tour operators organize trips to Ilulissat Icefjord, including hiking trips, sailing trips and helicopter flights.
