east Greenland

In July 2017 I visited Ammassalik Island on the East Coast of Greenland which is separated from the mainland of Greenland by the wide Sermilik Fjord in the west, and by the Ikaasartivaq Strait in the northeast. The Ammassalik area of East Greenland, an isolated wilderness of steep granite mountains, glittering fjords and impressive glaciers, offers great opportunities for outdoor adventure. In July 2023 I revisited East Greenland.
