New Cemetery, Kulusuk

3.0
#5 of 7 in Historic Sites in Greenland
Observe the unique local tradition at New Cemetery, a well-maintained burial site stretching on permafrost ground. The cemetery is arranged according to an Inuit tradition whereby the name of the deceased is carried on to another after death--thus, no engraved names appear on the white crosses. Note that you'll find many more graves here than in Kulusuk's old cemetery. Climb to the top of the hill for a view of the village and Greenland's wild, icy beauty.
