The combination of ice sheet and fast moving glacier calving into a fjord is a phenomenon that only occurs in Greenland and Antarctica. Annually, over 10% of all Greenland’s icebergs calve from Ilulissat Icefjord, producing more ice than any other glacier outside Antarctica.
Flowing from the icefjord is the Jakobshavn Glacier, which together with the icefjord sends 35 billion tonnes (46km3) of icebergs into the surrounding Disko Bay every year.
- 4 main hiking trails
- Information board and map at the Old Heliport; 15 minute walk from the centre of Ilulissat
