Located roughly between Iceland and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago roughly where the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans meet, Greenland is the world‘s largest island. Forbidding, rugged and hauntingly beautiful, it is one of the planet‘s last great wilderness areas.
History and culture
Settled about 4,500 years ago the early inhabitants of Greenland named it „Inuit Nunaat“ which translates as „country of people“. Later the name changed to „Kalaallit Nunaat“ which means “country of Greenlanders”. Much of Its forbidding interior lies under an enormous mass of ice that can reach up to 9,800 ft.,- almost seven times the Empire states building.
Ilulisaat - the Iceberg
One of Greenland‘s greatest attractions is an area surrounding a small remote town in the Qaasuitsup municipality in western Greenland, about 200 km (120 mi) north of the Arctic Circle. Formerly known as Jakobshavn or Jakobshaven this small town is in the native tongue called „Ilulisaat“, which roughly translates as „Iceberg“.
Kangia Icefjord and Sermeq Kujalleq Glacier
Just North of Ilulisaat the Kangia Icefjord is home to Sermeq Kujalleq Glacier, one of the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. Jam-packed with enormous icebergs from Sermeq Kujalleq, Kangia is considered one of the best places to experience "calving" which is when massive chunks of ice brake off glaciers and fall into the sea churning it into a spectacular maelstrom.
Many fantastic excursions are available from Ilulissat, by foot, boat, or air.
