This place.. Words cannot describe it, but I'll do my best: if you enjoy surreal landscapes of ice, sea and snow, of pink peachy skies contrasted with the stark white and blue of the icebergs, surrounded by hard, black rock mountains facing the sea - you MUST see this place. UNESCO was right to make this a world heritage site,... More

The source of 80% of the North Atlantic icebergs. Calving from the glaciers, struggling down the Isfjord, fighting their way into Disko Bay to start their journey. UNESCO World Heritage Sight. Fantastic!!!

This scenary of Disko bay and Illulissat ice-fjord simply stuns me with beautiful icebergs and long fjord view. The view is as impressive as the ones in Alaska, Iceland, and Patagonia Puerto Morino. Highly recommend.

I did an evening sunset cruise with World of Greenland and what an amazing experience it was to behold these FABULOUS icebergs. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

How can you explain something so vast and so beautiful! You cannot go to Ilullisat and not see this. It's simply stunning. So beautiful. I highly recommend hiking through this area. Not ON the fjord of course, but there are three lovely trails that you can take to get a good look. A boat ride is nice too. We hiked... More

This was on of the most amazing natural features I have ever seen. A world heritage site it deserves its accolade. Not to be missed.

Sailing along the frozen giants and whales was beyond epic. I had high expectations, but the adventure was far better than I had expected.
