A Picturesque Village North of the Arctic Circle

Not many tourists prefer to spend their vacation in Greenland. However, if you decide to visit Greenland, you will be amazed how wrong that notion is. This would be a cruise to the Arctic. The Arctic is one of the most desolated places on the planet, but landmarks such as the Ilulissat is a must-see. The site is a place where a picturesque village sits 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. This area is inhabited by just over 4,000 people.

Ilulissat is a place in the middle of nowhere, but this is where you can find the museum of a native: Knud Rasmussen. Knud Ramussen is a Danish polar anthropologist and explorer. The Ilulissat Icefjord has been declared a World Heritage Site in 2004. Some visitors say that they have not seen anything quite like it.

The Ilulissat Icefjord  is more than 40 kilometers long and 40 kilometers wide. This is where you can see clear tons of icebergs and ice chips every day, emerging to the open sea.
