Gateway to Greenland and the Arctic Circle Region

The Area

Kangerlussuaq lies between sea and ice at the end of a fjord and is home to the largest ice-free area in Greenland. The nearest inhabited places are Sisimiut, the second largest town in Greenland, and the village of Sarfannguit, which is less than a 130-kilometer (81-mile) beeline away. The wilderness area that lies in between has served as hunting ground for Inuit populations through millenia.
