Itterajivit (also Ittaajimmiut or Igterajivit), formerly Kap Hope, was a small village in the Sermersooq municipality in eastern Greenland. It was abandoned in late 2005.[1][2] It was the last remaining populated settlement outside Ittoqqortoormiit, located on Liverpool Land, across the Rosenvinge bay to the west of the town. It was featured in the TV show Departures.
