Disko Bay, on the west coast of Greenland, features the incredible Jakobshavn or Eqi calving glacier, huge icebergs and Disko Island's hot springs, bird cliffs and basalt columns. It has been a centre of Inuit settlement for thousands of years and many archaeological finds have been made here, including the remains at Sermermiut. The Bay supports a number of Greenlandic villages including Saqqaq and Rodebay, where visitors can observe the traditional hunting and fishing way of life. Ilulissat is the largest town and centre for the region.
The island groups of Hunde Ejland and Kronprinsens Ejland lie at the mouth of Disko Bay and are surrounded by rich waters which attract both seabirds and whales. Call at the small settlement on Hunde Eijland where old dwellings of Greenlands's Thule culture (dating from the 11th Century) and graves from 18th Century Dutch whalers can be seen.
