Alpine mountain tops and traditional Inuit culture
The word „Tunu“ translates into „backside“ and is used by the Greenlanders of West Greenland to describe East Greenland. This part is said to be mysterious, even to other Greenlanders, but also mentioned as one of the most beautiful places in Greenland. Many who have travelled the world are certain that this might be the most beautiful place on earth.
Not many places on earth are as remote and pristine as this one. The 2,700 km stretch of the east coast includes the world’s largest national park and there are only about 3,000 inhabitants.
In fact, East Greenland is gorgeous, rough and remote in its own way, since it is not visited by many tourists. It is the perfect place for those who love to experience high-end unspoiled nature.
East Greenland will impress your guests with enormous glaciers, the continental ice sheet as well as the ragged and steep terrain which comprises the deep fjords. This part of Greenland is actually more alpine and rough in comparison to the rest.
The People of East Greenland
East Greenland is one of the least populated areas in Greenland, along with the national park area and northern Greenland near Qaanaaq. When compared to the rest of Greenland, the people of East Greenland are living more isolated, which further leads to a limited flow of visitors.
Kulusuk in East Greenland
You can access East Greenland through Kulusuk Airport. The Kulusuk settlement is situated on a small rocky island, which is almost always surrounded by icebergs and a glistening arctic sea. This place, which has about 320 inhabitants, presents your guests with the opportunity to stay in one of the best situated hotels in Greenland. Hotel Kulusuk offers splendid views of the fjord, the mountains and the glaciers.
