June 21 is not only the longest day but also Greenland’s national day. The weather was excellent: the sun was shining most of the day and the wind was just strong enough to keep the mosquitoes away. It was thus an excellent frame for visiting the Ilulissat Ice Fiord (since 2004 a UNESCO world Heritage site) and celebrating the national day.
During the day the Fram guests celebrated the national day in Ilulissat. The activities ranged from kayak performance and traditional dancing to songs by a local choir and an open air concert.
Many guests took the opportunity to combine participation in these activities with hiking to Sermermiut or Holms Bakke or they enjoyed the spectacular Ilulissat Ice Fiord by boat.
