Location within Greenland
Sermitsiaq is one of three mountainous islands located in the middle section of the 160 km (99.4 mi) long Nuup Kangerlua fjord, to the north of Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. The two sibling islands are Qeqertarsuaq Island and Qoornuup Qeqertarsua Island. The prominent 1,210 metres (3,970 ft) Sermitsiaq mountain topping the island is a landmark of Nuuk, visible from most places in the city.
