Ilulissat, formerly known as Jakobshavn, is the third-largest city in Greenland and is home to just under five-thousand people and a similar number of sled-dogs also reside here. The city is located approximately 350 km north of the Arctic Circle and was founded as a trading post by the Danish merchant Jacob Severin.
In direct translation, Ilulissat is the Greenlandic word for ‘icebergs’. It is no surprise that the town is named after these gigantic pieces of ice, since icebergs in the Disko Bay area are some of the largest in the world, rising up to one-hundred metres above sea level.
...And Beautiful Surroundings
The city is famous for the Ilulissat Icefjord, which was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004, and is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Greenland.
Covering an area as large as almost seventy-thousand football fields, Ilulissat Icefjord is made up of icebergs that come from Sermeq Kujalleq, the fastest moving glacier in the world. Interestingly, it is believed that the iceberg that sank the Titanic came from this region.
