Cruises from Kullorsuaq
Kullorsuaq is a settlement in NW Greenland on Kullorsaq Island, Melville Bay, part of the larger Baffin Bay. The island is at the northern end of the vast Upernavik Archipelago that hugs the west coast of Greenland for a distance of 340 km. The first and official language is Kalaallisut or West Greenlandic, the colonial language being Danish. The settlement lies 900 km north of the Arctic Circle, and has a population of around 450 Inuit.
The name of the settlement means "Big Thumb" in Kalaallisut, after the Devil's Thumb, a prominent 500 m pinnacle-shaped mountain in the centre of the island about 3 km north of the settlement.
