In September 2005, an American Explorer, Dennis Schmitt, discovered an island off the coast of Greenland, Uunartoq Qeqertoq, Inuit for “warming island”. The island has always existed but covered by a glacier which melted exposing the island. On Uunartoq Island near the town are Inuit ruins from the 18th and 19th centuries, a nunnery and geothermal springs. Offshore are drifting icebergs and whales that frequent these waters.
