Geography[edit]

Torsukattak Strait is located in the southern part of the Upernavik Archipelago, in the group between Nunavik Peninsula in the south, and Upernavik Icefjord in the north.[1] The strait separates Akuliaruseq Island in the west from Amarortalik Island in the east. In the north, the strait empties into a small Kangerluarsuk Fjord off Koch's Land on the mainland of Greenland. In the south, it flows into Eqalugaarsuit Sulluat Fjord.
