  • The town was established in 1741 as trading post. The Zion Church was built in late 18th century, and was Greenland's biggest man-made structure at the time. In 1850, the final resident of Sermermiut (situated nearby) moved to Ilulissat.
  • Ilulissat Icefjord (an UNESCO World Heritage Site) with its pure white icebergs makes this port town a popular cruise ship tourist destination. Another major attraction is the enormous Disco Bay.
  • The town is served by Ilulissat Airport - located approx 3 km (2 ml) northeast of the town's center. The airport was built in 1983 to serve flights to other towns in mid- and north-westestern Greenland. Flights are operated by the domestic airline Air Greenland. Since 2011, Air Iceland also offers flights from Ilulissat to Reykjavík Iceland.
  • The Arctic Umiaq ferry links Ilulissat with Nuuk, Sisimiut, and other large towns on Greenland's western and southwestern coast.
