THE BIG ARCTIC FIVE-FILM ABOUT ICE
THE BIG ARCTIC FIVE PICTURES ABOUT ICE
The ice sheet fascinates everyone by its magnitude and all its power and beauty. Icebergs are calved out of glaciers and embark on long journeys out at sea – unique and magnificent works of art made by the hand of nature. You can walk on the ice at Kangerlussuaq and sail to glaciers throughout most of Greenland almost all year round. Ilulissat Icefjord is world famous because of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Tens of thousands of ice floes as far the eye can see are the first sign that you are approaching the east coast of Greenland and slowly, but surely, a dramatic mountain landscape is revealed with pristine mountain peaks and glaciers that are spurs of all the natural glory, also known as the Greenlandic Ice Sheet.
“You see the photos, you read what others write on the Internet … But being here and seeing the icebergs floating on the sea is just indescribable!” – Björn and Silvia Springorum, 2012.
From historical times to the present day, the ice has been a giant that isolated any groups of the country’s population from each other, attracted explorers, adventurers, scientists and calved millions of large and small icebergs from the numerous glaciers that are evenly distributed all over Greenland.
Most visitors coming to the country from Denmark also choose to drive out to the ice at Kangerlussuaq and walk the last bit onto the ice to see it close up. It is a once in a lifetime experience, but it is also possible to do it elsewhere in Greenland if you sail, fly in a helicopter or hike to the ice.
Icebergs are the ice sheet’s unique masterpieces and they come in all imaginable shapes and sizes, and the colours shimmer from white to blue and with greenish, yellowish and reddish shades depending on the light that hits them, for example, from the glow of the midnight sun that shines 24 hours a day north of the Arctic Circle. The further north you go, the longer the period of midnight sun.
