Visit Greenland went on a photo tour to the snowy village. See some scenes from Kuummiut in East Greenland.
At the bottom of the Ammassalik Fjord, just a few hours by boat from Kulusuk’s international airport in East Greenland lies the village Kuummiut. On the surface it is a quiet fishing and hunting community of about 300 people, much like many other villages around Greenland. But there is another thing on the surface out here. And that is snow. Kuummiut is known for its extreme snow levels, and every year sees plenty of powder days for skiers in the area, who take advantage of the many peak-to-beach runs both around the settlement and in the alpine backcountry north and west of the village. Check out the images below to get a sense of the place, and head over to our page on ski touring in Greenland to learn more about such skiing options in East Greenland.
