Just go there and enjoy the beauty of nature. No sound apart from cracking ice. Just incredible. Go there before everybody does.

It is stunning! Suggest taking a walk to here from town. The paths are good (still - have good shoes) and are easy to follow.

The Icefjord is absolutely gorgeous and I plan to return in the future. I very strongly recommend doing the hikes/walks down to the Icefjord. My favourite was the yellow hike as the high vantage point gave fabulous views out over the ice. Remember to wear...More
