New Greenland Route
Air Greenland is launching a new connection from Keflavik International Airport to Ilulissat in the summer of 2016, expanding the airline’s already impressive roster of flights. Air Greenland has a total of 15 flights a week to Greenland during the summer, departing from Keflavik and Copenhagen.
2016年夏天，格陵兰航空公司开通了从凯夫拉维克国际机场/Keflavik International Airport到伊卢利萨特/Ilulissat的新航线，使该公司的航班数再次得到了扩充。夏季，格陵兰航空公司每周共有15架次航班从凯夫拉维克/Keflavik和哥本哈根/ Copenhagen飞往格陵兰。
Exciting Icy Excursions
There is so much to see and do while in Ilulissat with many exciting excursions. Visitors can opt for a 1.5-hour helicopter flight over the fjord, where you can see the enormous scale of the fjord and glacier from the air. A stop with a view of the vast inland ice sheet white is an unforgettable experience. Travellers can get up close and personal with huge icebergs as they pass by, drifting off to sea by arranging for a 2.5-hour sailing trip. Sailing in the light of the summer midnight sun from the Ilulissat Icefjord, which is a World Heritage Site, is an incredible sight. The light is quite special in the summer with the low sun giving off warm red hues in the middle of the night. There’s also a chance of seeing whales during the trip. World of Greenland will arrange all the details for you. The company is also working on creating additional excursions for the summer for active travellers like hiking and sledding.

Arctic Town Culture
Ilulissat, which means icebergs, is not only beautiful, it’s North Greenland’s centre for culture. There are museums, an active harbour, cafés, restaurants and even a nightclub. Sermermiut, the culture house, holds both cinema and theatre performances, and often features guest performances by local and international artists. There are also opportunities to see and purchase high quality local crafts.
The Arctic explorer Knud Rasmussen was born in Ilulissat and there is a lovely exhibition in town that gives an impression of the courage and determination that characterised his daring expeditions. It’s recommended to hike to the Sermermiut settlement and take an evening stroll to Knud Rasmussen’s memorial stone, where there’s a fabulous view of the bay all the way over to Disko Island, some 75 km away. If the weather is clear, visitors have a chance to experience a sunset that’s really out of this world.
