KOKS at Ilimanaq Lodge

Since opening in 2017, Ilimanaq Lodge has served food from Greenlandic ingredients prepared with a stylish New Nordic twist.

During the summer seasons of 2022-2024, the team from the previous 2-Star Michelin restaurant KOKS are operating our restaurant.

We believe this collaboration under the direction of KOKS award-winning Head Chef Poul Andrias Ziska will take Greenland’s gastronomic tourism to new heights, and put Greenland on the world map of new, exciting must-visit destinations.

Vil du krydre din rejse med den delikate smag af grønlandske råvarer, så er KOKS Ilimanaq et besøg værd. Style and quality is at Michelin level, but the atmosphere is cozy and informal.

In historical surroundings

KOKS is situated in Ilimanaq’s old colonial managers residence from 1741. It one of Greenland’s oldest houses. The house was build by the well-known missionary and tradesman Paul Egede - son of Hans Egede who came to Greenland as the very first missionary.

In 2017 the building was renovated by Realdania By & Byg. They have won the renowned Europe Nostra Award for this renovation. Realdania who is behind Realdania By & Byg is also responsible for Ilulissat Icefiord Center. The renovation has been done with focus on the building’s original materials and colours. You can thus, experience an original sail from a whalership, canvas walls, original planks and woodwork from the 1700s and a tarred facade with a scent that takes you to another world.

Difficulty Level
1: Easy

An easy tour means that you must be able to walk a few kilometers in slightly hilly terrain. Like taking a walk on paths in the woods, with a little detour every now and then. You must also be mobile enough to be able to board a boat, even if it may sway a little.

2: Moderate

Accessible to anyone with good health, who is used to off-road walking and hiking. When it comes to sledding, we call it moderate, as you may have to get off the sled and walk / run next to it. In addition, you need to have a healthy back as there will be bumps along the way.

3: Challenging

On a challenging hike you must be able to walk up and down steep hills. You may also have to walk on loose rocks and cross streams, and walk on snow/ice. Involves hiking with a backpack. When challenging is used in connection with sledding tours, it is because we expec that you can walk / run after the sledge up hills, if this is needed. 

4: Demanding

On a demanding hike we expect you to be in good physical shape. This means that you can hike long distances, maybe during several days, and that you can climb many altimeters during the day. Eg. our hike to the Inland Ice, where 1000 altimeters and 20 km must be climbed in one day. Demanding hikes involve hiking with your own backpack.


Expedition level. Requires considerable effort and perseverance. Only suitable for people in really good physical shape.

Besøgende til Glacier Lodge Eqi

Glacier Lodge Eqi, er beliggende på fjeldet 100 m over vandet. Vi anbefaler derfor at bagage medbringes i en rygsæk, da stigningen ikke gør det muligt at medbringe en kuffert. Bemærk, at landgangen ikke er handikapvenlig. Alle vandreture i Eqi, samt vandring på egen hånd bør betragtes som fjeldture der går fra udfordrende til meget krævende.
