Ilulissat – The Iceberg Capital

Embark on a thrilling boat expedition into the Ilulissat Icefjord c, filled with icebergs from the Sermeq Kujalleq Glacier. Calving at an amazing average rate of 82 feet each day, it’s one of the world’s fastest-moving and most productive. This glacier is also one of the few through which the Greenland ice cap, formed during the Quaternary Ice Age, reaches the sea – and some of the ice that surrounds us today is estimated to be 250,000 years old! Be sure to keep your eyes sharp: The skies and waters of the fjord are also home to a variety of sea birds including eider, auk, and guillemot. Meals B+L+D
