About Ilulissat

An ideal tourist destination
Ilulissat (Jakobshavn), in the West of Greenland, has become one of Greenland's biggest tourist destinations with its awe-inspiring scenery and dramatic sounds of glaciers breakingoff into the sea.

The Iceberg Town
The 56 km long Ilulissat Icefjord that is filled with enormous icebergs from the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere, Sermeq Kujalleq, is locatedin the center of Disco Bay and is on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Just a couple of kilometres from Ilulissat the idyllic Sermermiut valley lies out towards the ice fjord.
