Igloos at Hotel Arctic in Greenland


Hotel Arctic

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.
