Ittoqqortoormiitt, Eastern Greenland.


Ittoqqortoormiit.


Ittoqqortoormiit is located on Liverpool Land, near the mouth of the northern shore of the Kangertittivaq fjord, which empties into the Greenland Sea.

A 20th century settlement that was encouraged by Denmark, the colonial power, Ittoqqortoormiit was intended for resettlement of the inhabitants of Tasiilaq. The settlers soon prospered on the good hunting conditions of the new area, which is rich in seals, walruses, narwhals, polar bears and arctic foxes.
