Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Expedition Svartenhuk

Svartenhuk is a vast mountainous peninsula which guards the entrance to the huge Uummannaq Fjord system, separating it from the Upernavik Archipelago to the North. The Danish name, Svartenhuk, meaning 'Black Corner' refers to the black layered basalt cliffs of the peninsula, a remnant of the volcanic eruptions which formed the area around sixty million years ago during the opening of the North Atlantic Ocean, making Svartenhuk among the youngest landforms on the ancient island of Greenland.

The jagged mountains and sheer cliffs of the peninsula hude a maze of fjords, including the fiftykilometre long Sullua Fjord, whose calm waters are jewelled with icebergs from the end of Uummannaq Fjord. Although the peninsula itself is uninhabited, small villages lie to the north and south, and the mountains and fjords are a popular spot for local hunters and fishermen, as well as with local families, many of whom have summerhouses in the area. Glaciers flow down from the high mountains, adding smaller icebergs to the maze of fjords and cliffs which grace some of the best scenery in Greenland.
