East Greenland - beautiful, remote and unspoiled
East Greenland is for the curious traveller
East Greenland is said to be one of the most beautiful places in Greenland. People who have travelled the world and then visited East Greenland say it is among, and perhaps, the most beautiful place on earth. East Greenland offers unique experiences for the curious traveller all year round, both in summer as well as in winter. If you don’t want to walk in the foot steps of others - East Greenland is the place!
Without a doubt, East Greenland is by far one of the remote and unspoiled places in Greenland. Very few people live in East Greenland and they are spread over a large area. East Greenland was one of the last places in Greenland to become colonised and thus East Greenland has been without influence from European cultures longer than West Greenland.
Typically you reach East Greenland from Iceland. From Reykjavik you fly to Kulusuk and from there most people continue by helicopter to the beautiful city of Tasiilaq, also known as Angmassalik (Ammassalik). From the village there is a stunning view over the Ammassalik fjord.
