About Igloo Lodge

Spend the night in a traditional Igloo

Igloo lodge is World of Greenland’s first winter lodge and is now part of a series of unique lodges. Here you get an experience that you will never forget. Imagine sleeping in the middle of the sparkling Greenland winter fell, where the igloos are built from snow, as the inuit has practiced through thousands of years. The word Igloo comes from the Greenlandic word “Illu” that means house.

Igloo Lodge is not a fancy Ice-Hotel – it is the real deal. It is for you who wants to experience the total silence, the magnificent surroundings, and the dancing aurora borealis and a nice cozy atmosphere. For you who dares to go off the beaten track, for you who wants a little more.

If you have not experienced Greenland during the winter months, a visit to Igloo Lodge Eqi is something you must not miss. The lodge is located at Nalluarsuk, 15 kilometers into the Ilulissat hinterland – on the edge of the UNESCO area Ilulissat Icefiord. 

From the big cabin, you can keep up with the traffic, comprised of dog sledges and snow mobiles, passing by on the large frozen lake. Here is plenty opportunity to pull the plug, forget the everyday life and just enjoy the present.

Our lodge staff will be your hosts throughout the stay. During the day, we will take you on a snowshoe hike into the UNESCO area to a view point from where we can see the Icefiord, the ice sheet, and the impressive Sermeq Kujalleq glacier, that produce some of the mightiest icebergs.

We will pamper you and throughout the stay make sure you have hot coffee and tea, delicious snacks, and a nice atmosphere. In Igloo Lodge cosiness is at the center.

"Wonderful, (and cross-border) experience to spend the night in an igloo, walk in snowshoes to the most beautiful view point, have fun, and eat great food with lovely people in the cabin. We were my 17-year-old grandson and 66-year-old myself, and we were both equally excited. "
