Stretching on a desolate, severe Arctic tundra lies Kap Hope, the last remaining populated settlement on Liverpool Land. Visit the local museum with photographs and traditional Greenlandic dress, the Lutheran church with a modest wooden ship hanging from a beam, and the handicraft shop selling goods made from arctic fox.

Access to the village is by helicopter or ship.
