Greenland Destination Guide


When you think of icescapes, you have probably never imagined anything like Ilulissat Icefjord, a 34 mile (55 km) long fjord. As the fastest moving glacier in the world, this UNESCO World Heritage Site should definitely be on everyone’s bucket list. The icebergs that calve from this fjord are so enormous it is hard for the average person to even begin to fathom their size. These icebergs cannot leave the fjord until they break up into smaller icebergs; there is, quite literally an iceberg traffic jam. Ilulissat Icefjord calves up to 20 billion tons of icebergs each year!

Known locally as the Arctic Patagonia, the Tasermiut Fjord attracts climbers, kayakers and trekkers. As one of the most challenging big wall playgrounds in the world, the 44 mile (70 km) fjord is renowned for its superior rock faces. Did You Know? Because of Greenland’s many fjords, there are few connecting roads between towns. The local modes of transportation are by air, boat, car, snowmobile, and dog sled.
