Ivittuut-Kangilinnguit Road

Ivittuut-Kangilinnguit Road, the only paved road in Greenland

A road between Ivittuut and Kangilinnguit is the only paved road in Greenland. It’s 4.5 km (2.8 mi) long. Due the extreme weather there are no roads between settlements in the whole island, only within them and around them.

Located in southwestern Greenland, this short road links Ivittuut, an abandoned mining town near Cape Desolation, and Kangilinnguit or Kangilínguit, a settlement and a naval base in Greenland's Sermersooq municipality, located at the mouth of Arsuk Fjord. All transportation is conducted with airplane or ship.
