Romer is a land-locked freshwater fjord at the northern end of King Frederick VIII Land, near Greenland’s northeastern coast. The Lake is famous for its impressive Elephant Foot Glacier, a wide piedmont glacier with a strikingly shaped 5.4 kilometers (3 mi) wide terminal lobe flowing into the lake from the SE in its central part.
