Silversea Expedition Cruises To ILULISSAT

ILULISSAT

Known as the birthplace of icebergs, the Ilulissat Icefjord produces nearly 20 million tons of ice each day. In fact, the word Ilulissat means “icebergs” in the Kalaallisut language. The town of Ilulissat is known for its long periods of calm and settled weather, but the climate tends to be cold due to its proximity to the fjord. Approximately 4,500 people live in Ilulissat, the third-largest town in Greenland after Nuuk and Sisimiut. View more

Some people here estimate that there are nearly as many sled dogs as human beings living in the town that also boasts a local history museum located in the former home of Greenlandic folk hero and famed polar explorer Knud Rasmussen.

Excursions in ILULISSAT

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

If guests are not on a planned tour, they may also explore and visit this intresting town with a reasonably large community. The museum will be open and guests will have access to see this and much more while visitig the community.

Kayaking with Silversea Expedition team

"We will do a dry landing today onto a wooden jetty before guests head off on their adventures:

Simirmiut Hike: This 5.4km easy hike will go from the landing site along the road to the old heliport, will continue along a wooden boardwalk and lead to the Icefjord lookout view point, great for pictures with large icebergs. It takes you to the viewpoint for a stunning view of the large Icebergs. Don't forget your camera!


Instead of turning back after the view point, why not continue in a loop to see the surrounding nature scenes and the tundra.

Please note that that this second hike goes over some quite rocky and muddy terrain and therefore not recommended for guests with movement restrictions."
