Ilimanaq is a small settlement located in the northern part of Greenland, in the Qaanaaq district. It lies along the shore of the Inglefield Fjord, just north of the Arctic Circle. It is one of the most remote settlements in the world, with no road access and only a few airstrips in the area.

Ilimanaq has a population of about 100 Inuit people, who live a traditional lifestyle based on fishing and hunting. The settlement is home to a small school, a church, a health center, and a few other basic facilities.

The area around Ilimanaq is known for its stunning landscapes, with glaciers, mountains, and fjords providing a breathtaking backdrop. The settlement is also home to some of the oldest archaeological sites in Greenland, including an ancient Inuit settlement dating back to the 15th century.

Ilimanaq is an important part of Greenland's history. In the early 19th century, it was the site of a major battle between the Inuit and the Danish colonial forces. The Inuit were eventually forced to surrender and the Danish government took over control of the settlement.
