The town has a superb location at the edge of Northeast Greenland National Park and close to Scoresby Sound, which is the world’s longest fjord. Up on the peak of the fell polar explorer Ejnar Mikkelsen looks out over the magnificent landscape; a fjord complex that attracts narwhals, walruses, seals and polar bears. The area also attracts sea birds, which breed in their millions.
We can guarantee that you’ll enjoy the wildlife undisturbed. Just ten to fifteen ships call at the port each season. In September, however, there’s life on the quay when several cruise ships discharge their passengers so that they’re able to enjoy the fantastic scenery.
If you wish to experience the area’s natural splendour even more closely, then go hunting with a local hunter. Head out to the edge of the ice with a loaded shotgun looking for the day’s prey – first and foremost seals. You’ll feel the rush of adrenalin pumping through your veins, although you’re sure to be in good hands.
Experiences in Ittoqqortoormiit
The town lies in a remote location a long way to the north. It’s a busy, unspoilt community with hospitable inhabitants whose existence is based on hunting at the mouth of the fjord during summer and winter. North of the town is the National Park, which is not afraid to call itself the world’s greatest wilderness. The National Park is uninhabited, and only sporadically visited by researchers and the Sirius Patrol, which patrols the area on dogsled and by boat.
Every Greenlandic town of any stature has a museum – and this is also true of Illoqqortoormiit. Historical costumes, tools and paintings provide the narrative of life in harsh conditions. Until just over 120 years ago the inhabitants lived isolated from the rest of the world. This has had a great influence on the local culture, which is rooted in legends and sagas.
