EAST GREENLAND

Welcome to East greenland

East Greenland is one of the most isolated habitations in the world. In East Greenland you will find two cities; Tasiilaq with 5 villages and Ittoqqortoormiit with one village.

The coast is enormous and the nature overwhelming, with the grate nature, many fiords, big mountains and glechiers.

East Greenland is rich in nature and culture. Tasiilaq is not as old as you may think, it was civilized in 1894, because of that many specially elderly people can tell you about how they lived in skin-tents, igloos and earth-huts. 

In East Greenland many hunting-traditions and hunting-culture are still the same as before, and Inuit has survived by repeating the nature and it's forces and by living of it.

Today the cities and society are modern and in under constant development.

The tourist operators can tell you incredible stories about the nature, culture and the past and the stories about the different places, and you can explore the nature in different ways, depending on the time of year, you can go on boattrips,helicpotertrips, dogsledding, snowmobiles and by hiking.

I myself are born and raised here. My heart belongs here where nature is just outside my door and I we still live of and by respecting the nature and we are surrounded by smiling and welcoming faces.

To put it on perspective I can tell, that my own mother was born in a tent midwifed by her own father.
