Ilulissat winter day tours
13-18 and 25-27 April 2007
Ilulissat is a nice and charming greenlandic town, about 350km north of the arctic circle. For passengers continuing to Qaanaaq, is required to stop here for at least one night, as the flight leaves early in the morning. I take this oppurtunity to hike in and around Ilulissat exploring daily life in Greenland.

This hostel in Ilulissat, where I've spent two nights, has double bed (optionally can be single) and shared bath.

I take a walk to Sermermiut valley, about 1km from central Ilulissat. At the end of the trail, there are beautiful views on the Icefjord (Kangia), full of majestic icebergs.
