Kangerluarsoruseq (old spelling: Kangerdluarssoruseq) is a former settlement in the Sermersooq municipality in southwestern Greenland.

History[edit]

Kangerluarsoruseq was founded in 1927 by some Faroese as Føroyingahavnin. It was then officially known by the Danish name Færingehavn. The fishing village was abandoned in late 2009.[1]
