Overnight stay in Ilimanaq Lodge 2 nights
All cabins in Ilimanaq Lodge are designed to blend in with the landscape. The black roof and the greenish surface of the outer walls compliment the Greenlandic heaver and coastal cliffs. The sloping roof is covered with solar panels which produce energy for your electricity and indoor heating. The surprisingly modern interior contrasts the settlement but contains an atmosphere that allows you to lean back and relax to the sound of whales passing by. The cabin is built with two floors and a huge panorama window that covers them both, meaning that you will wake up with excellent, unspoiled view to the ocean and sit in your living room with the same. On the lower level you will find a bathroom with running water heated by solar energy and the cabins living room with comfortable furniture.

You will need to carry your bag from the harbour and up the stairs where the luggage service begins, so you must be able to carry your own luggage. You probably do not need your entire luggage on this trip anyway, so leave a bag behind at the World of Greenland office.
In the summer months it will be a good idea to bring insect repellent and nets.
