Ilimanaq Lodge

Are you dreaming of an idyllic holiday in a small Greenlandic settlement with focus on precense and quality? Then book your trip to Ilimanaq Lodge today.

Getting to Ilimanaq Lodge – A boat ride through UNESCO

There are no roads to Ilimanaq from the surrounding towns. You arrive by boat, and your holiday starts the moment you leave Ilulissat.

The journey through Ilulissat Icefiord is in a league of its own. We zig zag through some of the world’s largest icebergs, and with a bit of luck we will encounter a whale or two before we arrive at the small quay of Ilimanaq. It is no coincidence that the area is part of UNESCOs world heritage list.

  • We have arranged a boat shuttle that is included in your stay.
  • The boat ride takes approximately 1 hour, depending on weather and ice condition.
  • Departure from Ilulissat at 1.30 p.m.
  • Departure from Ilimanaq at 3 p.m.
  • We sail in a larger steel ship, where it is possible to be outdoors as well as indoors.
