Ittoqqortoormiut (aka Illoqqortoormiut) is the principal settlement in Scoresby Sound region in Northeastern Greenland. It has about 500 inhabitants. Visitors wander around and enjoy sledge dogs tethered outside brightly painted wooden homes. Another interesting view are the hung out to dry skins of Seal, Polar Bear and Musk Ox, which betray hunting livelihood of many of the local people in the far-flung place.
Ittoqqortoormiit is one of the youngest towns in Greenland and the most isolated. Scoresby Sund with its side fjords are the biggest fjord complex in the world. The fjord itself is the longest in the world. The municipality is nearly the size of Great Britain and the inhabitants live in Ittoqqortoormiit or one of the two settlements, Uunartoq/Cape Tobin or Itterajivit/Cape Hope. Hunting and, to some degree, fishing are main trades of the region.
The city of Ittoqqortoormiit was settled in 1925 by people from Ammassalik, supported by Danish seafarer Ejnar Mikkelsen. Already at that time, the region was known as a very good hunting ground for polar bears, seals and walruses. Only few visitors make it to this remote area which offers beautiful expedition-like trips on dog sleds or in kayaks, and it is also the departure point for expeditions into the National Park in North Eastern Greenland.
