Igloo, sleeping bag and reindeer skin
The Igloo Lodge consists of five spacious igloos, each with room for two people. Reindeer skin and warm winter sleeping bags are available. There are candles on the bedside table, which means that the temperature is around the freezing point inside the cabin. It stands in stark contrast to minus 20 degrees Celcius outside. The heated wooden cabin next to the igloos is where we eat our meals. In the wooden cabin, there is also a dry closet.
The excursion is a snowshoe trip, where we go to a lookout point of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord.
The trip to the Igloo Lodge is also exciting in itself. You will be taken on a snowmobile for about an hour into Ilulissat’s hinterland with fantastic views along the way. When you arrive, it is time for coffee and lunch, the snowshoe excursion, afternoon coffee and cake, dinner, and evening coffee. You will look for the northern lights, stay overnight in your igloo, have breakfast and, finally, you go on a snowmobile trip back to civilization.
