Leave the busyness of the world behind and spend a few days 'on top of the world'. The Ilimanaq Lodge Retreat is the perfect place to enjoy the amazing Arctic countryside. Ilimanaq is a tiny settlement situated south of Ilulissat, and with less than 100 inhabitants it is a close-knit community which traditionally has survived by fishing and hunting.  In 2016 Ilimanaq Lodge was established with the intention of giving something back to the local community.  Staying at the Lodge gives you the opportunity to not only experience what life is like in such a small village, but to enjoy exploring the area around Ilimanaq. Here you can enjoy activities sucn as cultural settlement walks, glacier hikes, boat trips and driving by ATV through the rugged landscape, all whilst staying in peace and luxury. 

Day 1 Ilulissat - Ilimanaq Lodge
Transfer from your hotel to the pier in Ilulissat, then transfer by boat to Ilimanaq and on to the Lodge.  The afternoon is free.  Overnight in your private cabin. There are 15 luxury cabins situated on the cliffs by the water, and one side of each cabin has a huge a glass front so you can enjoy the breath-taking views from both the living room and the bedroom. Each cabin is a little over 40 square metres and has an ensuite bathroom. 

Day 2 Ilimanaq Lodge Day at Leisure
Day at leisure.  Wake up and open your eyes to the sight of majestic icebergs, then step down into the living room, sit on the couch and watch the fishing boats chug by on the crystal-clear water. Enjoy a coffee on your terrace and maybe wave to a whale that blows a nice ‘good morning’ through his blowhole.

Then perhaps enjoy some easy adventure! The Lodge guides will advise you about the various optional excursions available for purchase. Depending on the weather, these can include cultural activities in the village, visiting the locals, guided walks, ATV and boat tours, and more.
