Sleep in a New Hand Built Igloo in Ilulissat, Greenland

Igloo in Greenland

Launched by Arctic travel specialists Off the Map Travel, the new Iglo Lodge is a first for this winter, and perfect for those looking for an edge of adventure to their Arctic itinerary. With five spacious igloos available for guests, each with room to sleep two people, the ice-lodge is perfect for couples or a group of up to 10.

Each igloo comes complete with reindeer skins, specialist warm winter sleeping bags and a petroleum lamp on a night table. It is an adventure that strips back the luxury to deliver an authentic Arctic experience, bringing guests back to nature, spending a night in the Arctic tundra like the Innuits have done years before.

On site is a cozy warm wooden cabin containing bathroom facilities and communal area where meals are served. Although outside temperatures can drop well below freezing, the igloos remain around 0ºC – making sleeping in the specialist outdoor equipment more than comfortable.

As an example, a 5-day 4-night Ilulissat Igloo Experience itinerary available from the end of January to the beginning of April with Off the Map Travel, costs from £999 per person, not including flights. This includes three nights on a B&B basis at Hotel Arctic in a double room and one night in one of Iglo Lodge’s hand-built ice rooms. In addition, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and two Northern Lights safaris as well as transfers are included.
