The Lake Jokulsarlon is the largest glacial lake in Iceland, and is located south of the Vatnajökull glacier. The icebergs range from white to turquoise in color.
Without doubt, the star of the lake are the icebergs from the Breioamerkurjökul glacier, one of the most accessible areas of the world to observe.
Almost no one thinks of Greenland as a travel destination in itself. Some of the people of Greenland are almost always one step destination, perhaps on a cruise to the Arctic. This is one of the most desolate places on the planet where landmarks such as Ilulissat can be seen. The site is also a place where sits a picturesque village 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle inhabited by only over 4,000 people and where ice giants seem to stalk meters from the houses.
Ilulissat is a place in the middle of nowhere, and yet not without its attractions, as the native home of Knud Rasmussen museum, the Ilulissat fjord , is declared as a World Heritage Site, with some abandoned settlements in the vicinity, and of course, the landscapes that might as well fall under the category “probably-never-see-anything-like-it”.
South of the city is the Ilulissat fjord, a World Heritage Site since 2004. The ice fjord more than 40 kilometers long and 40 kilometers wide, clears tons of icebergs and ice chips every day, emerging to the open sea and beginning a journey of months until completely melted. It’s considered a great show in the area.
