Jakobshavn Glacier and Ilulissat Icefjord is absolutely wonderful. You can discover the glacier and the ice fjord from the sea side, the air or from the shore line. The glacier produces 86 million tons of ice every day and is the fastest glacier in the world. Ilulissat is a world heritage site (UNESCO) and is indeed one of the most beautiful places on our planet.

“With a speed of 19-24 meter every day Jakobshavn Glacier is one of the world’s fastest ice streams“
