In Ilulissat there is something for everyone. Restaurants, gift shops, cafes, helicopter excursions to the glacier Sermeq Kujalleq, boat trips to Ice Fjord and hikes to Sermermiut.
Despite the rain that fell around mid-day everyone got out on their excursions.

The views at Sermermiut were spectacular. A river of ice stretched as far as the eye could see. Sermec Kujalleq glaciar moves 19 metres a day. Witnessing all of the ice at Sermermiut it seemed more like the glaciar had moved 19 kilometres!

By 6:30 we were all back aboard the Fram. There were still lots of activities planned on board the ship. A charity auction and the crew show.
Tomorrow’s destination: Itilleq
