About us and the area
The Area

The East Coast of Greenland is one of the most remote areas in the world. There only lives 3250 people, spread out in two areas.

The area Ittoqqortoormiit with only 360 habitats, and the area called Ammassalik with 2900 habitats.

Tasiilaq city is the main city on the East Coast and placed in the Ammassalik area. The city is populated by 2000 habitats.

In the Ammassalik area, you can also visit 5 settlements, Kulusuk, Tiniteqilaaq, Sermiligaaq, Kuummiut, and Isortoq.

The area has only been in contact with the rest of the world for 140 years. Before 1884, the only people here were inuit who lived by what they could find in nature, without the help of any modern tool.

Today Tasiilaq city is a modern city with smartphones, internet access, supermarket etc. The city receives around 10 supply ships a year coming from June till November.
