Aappilattoq Island (old spelling: Augpilagtoq) is an uninhabited island in the Qaasuitsup municipality in northwestern Greenland. It is one of two islands of the same name in the Upernavik Archipelago.

Geography[edit]

Aappilattoq Island is located in Tasiusaq Bay, in the north-central part of Upernavik Archipelago, in the inner band of uninhabited islands.[1] The island is separated from Anarusuk Island in the east by a small Ikerasaarsuk channel. The inner waterways of Tasiusaq Bay separate it from Nuuluk Island and Saattorsuaq Island in the north, and from Tasiusaq Island in the south.[1]

The highest point on the island is an unnamed peak of 460 m (1,510 ft) in the central part of the island. The coastline of the island is undeveloped.[1]
