Cruises from Uummannaq
Uummannaq (Umanak) is a town in northwestern Greenland, located 590 km north of the Arctic Circle, on an island in the south-central arm of the fjord all sharing the same name. It is situated on a heartshaped island, hence its name which means 'heartlike place'. It is home to the country's most northerly ferry terminal. Founded in 1763 it is a hunting and fishing base with a canning factory and a marble quarry.
The neighboring villages in the Uummannaq area are served by district cargo helicopters.
