The Most Remote Places: Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland

Most Remote Places Ittoqqortoormiit Greenland

If you think the name is hard to pronounce, try being one of the 500 people living in this desolate area. The village is located on the eastern shore of Greenland and is just north of Iceland.

Greenland’s the one with all the ice, so the water surrounding the town are frozen almost year-round, making access to the region via boat near impossible. Furthermore, the small airport on the island rarely hosts flights.

The majority of the population lives off hunting and fishing, with polar bears and whales the most commonly hunted animals.
