Daily life with the Inuit

East Greenland is one of the most isolated habitations in the world. Along the 2,600 kilometres of coastline you’ll only encounter two towns and 7 small settlements, inhabited by a little more than 3,500 people. There is a natural reason for this very sparse settlement: East Greenland is situated between the polar sea ice and the Greenlandic Icecap, and is only accessible with supply ships 5 months a year. The Inuit Family Larson lives in a little town called Tiniteqiláq.
