Ilulissat Icefjord, Greenland - A World Heritage Site


Check out this amazing 4k drone video from the Ilulissat Icefjord of western Greenland, compliments of contributor and pilot AnneSofie.  Running west from the Greenland Ice Sheet, the Ilulissat is fed by the Jakobshavn Glacier, considered one of the most productive in the Northern Hemisphere.  The icebergs which are calved off and float into the fjord can be enormous - up to 1k meters tall or about 3.3k ft.  The largest are too tall for the relatively shallow sea and can be stuck on the bottom for many years before floating free.
