About This File
Icebergs are called Ilulissat in Greenlandic. Ilulissat is the third largest town in Greenland and is set in marvellous surroundings at Ilulissat Icefjord which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here enormous icebergs run aground at the mouth of the fjord, just outside the town, which originate from the Jakobshavn Glacier, one of the most productive glaciers in the northern hemisphere.
These photographs were taken on a recent visit in early June this year.
