The Scoresby Sund (Kangertittivaq) in East Greenland is the largest fjord system in the world and the home to one of the most dramatic landscape settings on earth. Icebergs like in Antarctica, mountain peaks like in Patagonia, fjords like in Norway all gathered in one place - the Scoresby Sund. The multi-faceted flora of Greenlandic tundra and large mammals including Seal, Musk Ox, and Polar Bear, are also great highlights of the area. From the vibrant reds and oranges of the glacier-carved terrain to the depthless blues of the icebergs that serenely float among the fjords, the overwhelming beauty of this vast fjord system fascinates any photographer who is lucky to visit this remote and rarely visited part of Greenland. The main structure of Scoresby Sund is about 110 km (approx. 68 mi) long, with a large number of islands and numerous side fjords, of which the longest extends to about 350 km from the coastline inland. Some of the fjords further inland are up to 1,450 m (4,760 ft) deep. The town of Ittoqqortoormiit is the only permanent settlement in this remote area. The name of this town with about 490 native Greenland inhabitants, the Inuit, translates into something like “those who live in big houses”. The sea ice blocks ship access to Ittoqqortoormiit for up to nine months of the year.
