Kullorsuaq Mountain (Upernavik)
Kullorsuaq means "The Great Thumb" and is situated near the settlement of Kullorsuaq. It is also known as the Devil's Thumb, because it was the last thing, which the crew on an English whaling boat saw, before the ship wrecked in the ice. Kullorsuaq is the northern most settlement in western Greenland.
Navaranas Grave (Upernavik)
In the churchyard in Upernavik is the wife of the polar scientist Peter Freuchen, Navarana, buried. During the fifth Thule expedition she got ill and died. The grave is founded in concrete and very striking. Navarana hadn't been baptised and the priest refused to bury her, so Peter Freuchen did it himself.
