Pingos have previously been recorded from East and West Greenland, but not from North Greenland. Two finds in Peary Land therefore extend their distribution far northwards. The pingos were collapsed, they have presumably been of the open-system type, because they are situated in the bottom of valleys. It is concluded that pingos occur very rarely in northernmost Canada and Greenland.
