VoM2: Coastal Views

I spent most of yesterday wandering around Ilulissat and the surrounding hills. This is a spectacularly beautiful place on a nice day!

Here are a few coastal views. You can see that Ilulissat is a colorful little village perched on rugged rock hills, right on the edge of the Disko Bay. The area is a UNESCO place and fairly well suited to tourists with a few large hotels, a number of places to eat and a very well run events/activities center.

It’s early enough in the season that there aren’t many folks here yet, but I imagine it can get pretty crowded in the peak seasons. Even still, I was happy to hike up one of the hills and enjoy a quiet, solitary and lengthy stare out at the ice floes. Pretty awesome.
