Uummannaq Town Harbour, Greenland

Uummannaq harbour. Like all towns in Greenland, there seems to be a very high level of boat ownership.

We were much entertained by the possible meanings of the sign, though a little investigation finds that it is Danish for "knots". Greenland is a part of the Kingdom of Denmark and Danish is widely spoken.

Air temp: +7º C Latitude: 70º 51' N Longitude: 53º 53' W


These are pictures from a cruise to the High Arctic in August 2010, from Resolute Bay Canada to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland.
