Upernavik Kujalleq

Upernavik Kujalleq, which was earlier known in Danish as 'Søndre Upernavik', is the southernmost settlement in the archipelago around Upernavik. Earlier, hunting seals and fishing cod and Atlantic wolffish were the chief livelihoods of people in the settlement, but today it's primarily Greenland halibut that's landed.

Upernavik Kujalleq was founded in 1855 as a trading station. There's a Pilersuisoq grocery store in the settlement.
