In World of Greenland's newest lodge we'll take you all the way out to a winter scenery as you haven't experienced it before. Tall snowy hills surround you, and the northern lights dance about the dark sky in spectacular green and red. Try spending a night in the tundra like the innuits have done, in proper igloos made of snow, and you'll enjoy a tour you won't forget very soon.
We embark from World of Greenland's office in the center of Ilulissat. From there you take a ride through the countryside on a snowmobile , during which there will be fantastic vistas of Ilulissat and the whole Disko Bay area. Upon arrival at Igloo Lodge you'll be welcomed with steaming warm coffee by the lodge's manager, who will introduce you to the schedule of the memorable next 24 hours.
Igloo Lodge is comprised of 5 spacious igloos, each with room for 2 persons, and complete with reindeer skin, warm winter sleeping bags on the beds, and a petroleum lamp on the night table. A focal point for everything is our cozily heated wooden country hut, where we enjoy the meals protected from the cold outside - which can be as low as minus 40° C (the same in Fahrenheit). The temperature inside the igloos will lie around freezing. There is a pit latrine in the wooden hut.
Vi look forward to welcoming you to the Igloo Lodge!
We have two departures to Igloo Lodge - 10:00 am and 11:30 am. Please visit our shop for more information about your departure time.
There is only space for 2 people in each igloo
The snowmobile trip is meant as transportation. Therefore the guests will not be driving the snowmobile themselves so lean back, relax and enjoy the spectacular landscapes.
As we have very limited space on the snowmobile and in Iglo Lodge we strongly advise our guests to pack lightly in a small backpack.
