Uummannaq Town, Greenland, The Terrace of the Uummannaq Hotel


At the end of the trip around town there was time for a drink on the terrace of the Uummannaq Hotel, with large glass barriers to any breeze it was a real sun-trap and a nearby thermometer said it was +24C in the sun. A fantastic view of the harbour and fjord and glacier ice in the drinks that cracked and popped most satisfactorily. At $5 for a Coke though made it was the only choice rather than the budget choice.

Uummannaq is famous as Greenland's sunniest spot, being also one of the driest places, I could live with this.

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