Cape York, with monument barely visible at the summit.


Cape York was the one of many places visited in 1894 by Admiral Robert Peary during his second expedition to the Arctic.

It was the site of discovery of the Cape York Meteorite. In the Greenlandic language, the name of the settlement Savissivik means 'place of meteorite iron', because of the numerous meteorites from 10.000 years ago that have been found in the area.

Robert Edwin Peary, Sr., whom the monument commemorates, was an American explorer who claimed to have led the first expedition, to reach the geographic North Pole, on April 6, 1909.
