Known among Greenlanders as Tunu or Tunua, which translates as 'the Back Side', the wild east coast of the island is a land apart, with differing cultural, linguistic and weather patterns to the rest of Greenland. The inhabitants of this area still depend heavily on subsistence hunting and fishing preserving ancient skills and traditions that would otherwise be lost despite the increasing influence of tourism money in the local economy. The scenery along the east coast is also known for being some of the most dramatic and beautiful in the country while to the north of Kulusuk lies the Northeast Greenland National Park. The largest national park in the world, it protects a pristine wilderness of unscaled peaks and a rich variety of wildlife. This 2-day itinerary to Kulusuk offers a taste of the amazing natural beauty of the area and the chance to view villagers going about their daily business surviving among the harsh landscape.
