Evighedsforden, Greenland

Evighedsfjorden is a fjord in the Qeqqata municipality in western Greenland. Taking its source in the tidewater glaciers draining the Maniitsoq ice sheet, the fjord flows in a deep canyon through a mountainous, uninhabited region, emptying into Davis Strait near the settlement of Kangaamiut.

Evighedsfjorden is 75km long and 700n deep. It is surrounded by majestic mountains and glaciers. Naparutaq, looms about the northern side of the fjords. The largest glacier in that area is Sermitsiaq Glacier, falling into two separate fjords: Kangerlussuatsiaq Fjord in the south and Kangaamiut Kangerluarsuat Fjord in the north. Visitors can go ashore and actually touch the glacier.
