Niaqornat is a settlement in the Qaasuitsup municipality in northwestern Greenland. The settlement is located on the northern coast of the Nuussuaq Peninsula, with a wide view over Uummannaq Fjord. It had 58 inhabitants in 2010. Fishing is the mainstay of the economy, with stocks of Atlantic cod, Greenland halibut and Greenland shark. Niaqornat represents a traditional hunting culture where both dog sleds and small dinghies are used during the exploitation of the marine resources.
During spring a few polar bears are shot. The catch includes reindeer, caribou, Arctic hare, ptarmigan and various sea birds. The settlement is well situated for studies of narwhal, beluga, polar bear as well as other marine resources such as the ringed seal. Air Greenland serves the village as part of government contract, with mostly cargo helicopter flights from Niaqornat Heliport to the local hub in Uummannaq.
