Ella Oya - Greenland Highlights:
Ella Island, Hiker’s paradise
Ella Oya or Ella Island is an island in eastern Greenland, at the mouth of Kempe Fjord in the northern end of King Oscar Fjord. The island is within Northeast Greenland National Park. Lauge Koch had a cabin on the northern side of the island named Eagle's nest and the botanist Thorvald Sørensen spent the years 1931-1935 here. During World War II, US forces had an installation on the island called Blue East Four. The Sirius Sledge Patrol maintains a small base on the island which is manned only in summer. In 1971 a meteorite was found on Ella Island, classified as a L-6 chondrite.

Ella Oya is a hiker’s paradise and you can challenge yourself with a climb to the top of the island, where you will be well-rewarded for your efforts.
