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


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]
