Best Remote Hotels in the World
Guests gaze upon icebergs and dine on regional cuisine at this picturesque Arctic getaway.
In the Kalaallisut language, the word "ilulissat" means icebergs. That should give you an idea of how cold and far-flung this place is. After flying to the settlement of Kangerlussuaq in western Greenland, you will take another 45-minute flight to the colorful town of Ilulissat, where dog sleds are a common sight outside local houses. The hotel sits on the edge of the majestic UNESCO-designated Ilulissat Ice Fjord. The choice of comfy, cozy rooms varies, and we suggest you stay in one of the aluminum igloos with up-close iceberg views — after all, you've come this far. At house restaurant Ulo, Greenlandic specialties shine a light on fresh local ingredients.
