In direct translation, Ilulissat is the Kalaallisut word for "Icebergs".[ The nearby Ilulissat Icefjord is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has made Ilulissat the most popular tourist destination in Greenland. Tourism is now the town's principal industry. The city neighbours the Ilulissat Icefjord, where there are enormous icebergs from the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. These white giants are a source of astonishment for both residents and visitors, when the gaze drifts to the wide Disco Bay and when you walk close to the fjord.

An area so special, that UNESCO named it World Heritage in 2004. It is estimated that up to 30,000 guests visit Sermermiut every year, for this reason there is a wooden walkway to protect the area against wear. Therefore anyone can go on this trip. 
We follow the walkway to the viewpoint at Nakkaavik - "the place to fall" (Old Ladies Gorge), here our guide serves tea or coffee while we enjoy the view, then we return by the same route. 

Afternoon: Sailing among the icebergs. Duration 2½ hrs approximately..

“ The light of sun is absolutely fantastic! Even if it's cloudy, you can still see different light all the time, and the icebergs moving every second. It is absolutely Incredible! ”

Almost every visitor in Ilulissat chooses to try this boat trip among the icebergs at least once. During the year, more than 46 cubic kilometre of ice flow out into the fiord. The result is this gigantic Icebergs, which can be more than 100 metres on each side and with a height on more than 100 metres above the water surface. These giants strand at the end of the fiord, and that gives a good opportunity to sail among them. An exceptional life time experience, you do not want to miss, while visiting Ilulissat.

Today most of them live in the cities, but Ilulissat still got 4 vivacious settlements. One of those settlements is called Illimanaq and it is situated south of the ice fiord. IlIlimanaq has some beautiful old buildings from the colonial time that has just been restored. We will go to Ilimanaq by boat or ferry and make a guided sightseeing by foot to explore the beautiful settlement.

Ilimanaq is one of Greenland's oldest settlements - founded in 1741. Ilimanaq means 'place of expectations' which presumably refers to the fact that Ilimanaq formerly was a summer settlement and a great catch was expected.

Ilimanaq is located only 15 km from Ilulissat, however, the journey from Ilulissat to Ilimanaq by boat is absolutely marvelous as you pass by the enormous grounded icebergs from Kangia Ice Fjord along the way. In 2015 Ilimanaq had 52 registered inhabitants. The settlement is clustered around the harbor and all the houses in the settlement overlook the Disko Bay and Disko Island, some 100 kilometers away.
