It's not related to roads, but today I meet a guy (my cousin's friend) that took part of an epic expedition in Greenland few years ago. They flew to Kangerlussuaq, went by boat to Cape Farewell (the southernmost tip) and walked 2300km in 52 days on the ice capo towards the north, pulling sledges with food and equipment. He said that they were the first Italian group to complete successfully that extreme expedition.

Wow! Although these roads are not generally what could be classified as "highways" in other countries, the pictures on this page are breathtakingly beautiful.

This should be one of the widest. 2 lanes for cars and let's say other 2 lanes for pedestrians. No 4 lanes for vehicles only, traffic is still low.

Qeqertarsuaq (Godhavn)
It is a port and a town in Qaasuitsup municipality, located on the south coast of Qeqertarsuaq (Disko) Island, an island on the west coast of Greenland. Founded in 1773, it is home to a campus of the University of Copenhagen. The population is about 900 inhabitants. During winter Air Greenland operates winter-only air services from Qeqertarsuaq Heliport to Ilulissat, Qasigiannguit, and Aasiaat. During summer and autumn, when the waters of Disko Bay are navigable, communication between settlements is by sea only, serviced by Diskoline. The ferry links Qeqertarsuaq with Ilulissat, Aasiaat, Qasigiannguit, and Kitsissuarsuit.
