Accommodation in South Greenland

You can choose from a variety of accommodation options in South Greenland, ranging from hotels and guesthouses to diverse types of hostels. Another option is farm accommodation, which offers a unique opportunity to come into contact with the local population and catch a glimpse of the daily life of a Greenlandic family.

Blue Ice runs Igaliku Country Hotel (with café and restaurant) and Gardar Hostel in the charming village of Igaliku. During the Norse era, Igaliku was called Gardar. At the time, the community was built around the official residence of the Bishop of Greenland. Today, it is the starting point for several beautiful hikes in the area, and we highly recommend that you stay in the village for a couple of days on your tour of South Greenland.

Blue Ice also runs Narsarsuaq Hostel, a traditional yet modern hostel that is a convenient place in Narsarsuaq to meet other travellers. This is a budget alternative to the airport hotel and you can prepare your own meals in the large, well-equipped self-service kitchen.

Feel free to read more about both places below along with descriptions of the other accommodation options that we include in our package tours. You can book your accommodation by sending us an e-mail.

Igaliku Country Hotel

Loading...
…Igaliku is clearly off the grid as it is a settlement of < 25 people. It is truly beautiful and this inn permits you to stay there. Our two days was wonderful. Small rustic but fine rooms. Shared facilities but no problem at all. Really great meals.

Igaliku Country Hotel offers cosy and comfortable accommodation combined with delicious meals made from local products and served at our café. The hiking opportunities are some of the best in the area, with at least two full day-hikes through stunning landscapes. Furthermore, the village itself is the perfect place to kick back and relax. You can rest with a book outside your cabin, go fishing at Lake 90 or explore the ancient Norse ruins of the former Episcopal residence.

Facilities

The country hotel has 8 double rooms and 6 cabins (each for two persons). The rooms are small but have comfortable beds. If you prefer a little more space, we recommend that you book a cabin. An extra bed can be set up in the cabins. Everything is newly renovated. There are separate showers and toilets in the corridor, and a dining room with a beautiful view of the village. The cabins have access to showers and toilets in a service house 20 metres away.

Accommodation at the Country Hotel includes bed linens, towels and breakfast. You can buy lunch, lunch packets and dinner at the café. Please note that the cabins are part of the Country Hotel complex and have no cooking facilities.

Wireless internet (Wi-Fi) is available at the Country Hotel for a fee.

Open during the summer

The Igaliku Country Hotel is open from mid-May to mid-September.

Transport

When travelling to Igaliku by boat, you will typically disembark at Itilleq, which is a 4 km walk on a gravel road from the village. You can choose to have your luggage transported by car or, if you are not up to completing the walk, you can also order a car transfer.

Transport of luggage: EUR/DKK 9/60 per person (one way).
Transfer by car: EUR/DKK 34/250 per tour (one way) (1-5 persons).
