Where Is Coffee Club Island?

The island of Kaffeklubben, off the north coast of Greenland, has little to recommend it. Its name means “Coffee Club,” but there’s no coffee or anything else on this island.

It lies in the bleak, frigid Arctic region, just 440 miles from the North Pole. Until recently, the island had one claim to fame, it was the most northerly piece of land known on earth.

Now even that honor has been lost by Kaffeklubben. In 1978, an island about 100 feet across was found under the Arctic ice, less than a mile north of Kaffeklubben. So this tiny island is the most northerly piece of land yet discovered.
