Ikermiut is a former settlement in the Qaasuitsup municipality in northwestern Greenland. It was located on Ikermiut Island in the center of Inussulik Bay, a bay in the northern part of Upernavik Archipelago.[2] The settlement was abandoned in 1954 in favor of more northerly settlements of Nuussuaq and Kullorsuaq, due to rough sea waves of Inussulik Bay overflowing the island.[1]
