Ittoqqortoormiit – one of the world's most remote villages
At the entrance to the world’s largest fjord system, Scoresbysund, lies the small village with the long name Ittoqqortoormiit.
Its approximately 450 inhabitants mainly live of fishing and hunting and have 800 km between them and their closest neighbours. But it’s not only the local pub, the supermarket with freeze-dried food or the little souvenir shop that make the village well worth a visit – it’s the impressively grand nature, the small and colorful houses and the feeling of being very, very far away that affects you. A huge ice cap surrounds Ittoqqortoormiit for nine months, but for a short period of time expedition ships can stop by, and we plan to make a visit during our trip to northeast Greenland with the expedition ship Ocean Nova in September!
