Kangerlussuatsiaq
A 100 km long and beautiful fjord, also called Evighedsfjorden in danish, meaning the fjord of eternity. The fjord is one of the longest fjords in Greenland and has several glaciers and very tall mountains. The fjord also housed the greenlandic prophet Habakuk in the years around 1700-1800 in a place called Illut.
