The most southerly community in Avanersuaq lies to the south of Cap York where a 19 metre high monument to the American Explorer Robert E. Peary was erected on the cliff top. The name Savissivik means “the place where one gets iron”. The Inughuit found a number of meteorites in the area, the iron from which, they used to make knives and other tools. Savissivik is another wonderful place to see icebergs and each Spring millions of Little Auks arrive to breed in the hills behind the community. Savissivik has one shop and has limited fascilities for tourists.
