The website allows visitors to experience the Ilulissat Icefjord, one of the world's fastest glaciers, in videos and animations.
Ilulissat Icefjord possesses great beauty created by the Inland Ice, the glaciers, and the majestic icebergs. The area's abundant animal life has for thousands of years made it possible for people to inhabit this otherwise inhospitable environment. The icefjord is of international importance to the geosciences; numerous expeditions have explored the area for more than 250 years.
