Experience a Greenland holiday in the Ilulissat Icefjord. Cruise around the giant icebergs of the fjors, located 250 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. Ilulissat is an amazing destination and which is easily reachable from Reykjavík, Iceland. The name of the village, Ilulissat, means “the icebergs” in Kalaallisut, which is the native tongue of the Inuits. The village carries this name for a good reason, as on the fjord you will see a maze of gigantic icebergs that have broken off the vast Sermeq Kujalleq ice sheet. This area was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004 because of its uniqueness and unparalleled beauty. For an unforgettable Arctic experience it’s ideal to combine this three day Greenland holiday with for example our Express Iceland in 8 Days self drive package.
