Winter in Ilulissat is a magical time when you can let your body rhythm align with the natural light instead of the Google calendar. In November and December, see firsthand all the different shades of twilight you never knew existed, while you are out looking for the northern lights.

In January and February, get physically and mentally rejuvenated by the return of the sun. January 13 is the magic date when the sun rises once again after hibernating below the horizon for a month and a half - a day celebrated by the whole town with a brisk walk to the Ilulissat Icefjord, part of Greenland’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.
