Gunnbjørn Fjeld (also called only Gunnbjørn) is Greenland's highest mountain and also the highest mountain north of the Arctic circle. It is a nunatak, a rocky peak protruding through glacial ice.

Geography

Gunnbjørn Fjeld is located in the Watkins Range, an area of nunataks on the east coast, which contains several other summits above 3,500 metres.[1] Its height is often given as 3,700 metres (12,139 ft), although figures vary slightly.

History

Gunnbjørn Fjeld from Kong Christian IV Glacier, 2018

Gunnbjørn Fjeld was first climbed on 16 August 1935 by Augustine Courtauld, Jack Longland, Ebbe Munck, Harold G. Wager, and Lawrence Wager. It is named after Gunnbjorn Ulfsson, the first European to have sighted Greenland.

The peak rises in an uninhabited part of the eastern coast of Greenland. The mountain is climbed infrequently owing to its remote location. Access is often done with helicopter or ski-equipped plane (normally from Iceland).
