Welcome to Hotel Arctic (4*), the world’s most northerly 4 star hotel. Right on the edge of the Ilulissat Ice Fjord - a wonder of the world which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List – and well within reach for everyone who wants the experience of a lifetime. From May to October it is possible to stay overnight in one of the hotel's five unique two-person igloo cabins that are located at the end of a wooden bridge just a short walk from the hotel. Look out across the cliffs and the Disko Bay to watch the colossal icebergs as they drift by. The igloo cabins are inspired by the classic Inuit igloo in shape and design but instead of being made of ice, they have an aluminium frame so that when you step inside you are greeted by comfortable and modern facilities like any other hotel room. The atmosphere, however, is one of a kind.
All rooms at Hotel Arctic have the following facilities and services: Wireless internet, cable TV, telephone, radio with alarm, extra pillow, hairdryer, floor heating in the bathrooms, toiletries, mosquito net, desk, child’s bed, all dimmable lamps, iron and ironing board, room service and laundry service.
Hotel Arctic has 29 Puisi rooms, which have views of the town and the harbour. Renovation of all the Puisi rooms was completed in 2009 and they offer sensible comfort, simple solutions and an ambience that reflects the standard of Hotel Arctic. The new bathrooms are minimalistic – but equipped with Philip Stark sanitary ware. Original works by the Greenlandic artist Buuti Pedersen decorate the rooms.
Hotel Arctic has 20 Kajak rooms, all with views of the sea and the town. These rooms are furnished and equipped with everything to make your stay especially pleasant. 32" Loewe TV, free DVD films, trouser press, mini-bar and café set with coffee and tea. The Kajak rooms are more spacious than the hotel’s Puisi rooms. The tastefully designed rooms have paintings by the Greenlandic artist Miki Jakobsen.
Hotel Arctic has 21 Umiaq rooms, all with views of the sea and icebergs. These are the hotel’s newest rooms and they are of a very high international standard. Features include a 32" Philips TV, free DVD films, mini bar, café set with coffee and tea, and bathrobe. The elegant bathrooms have shower stalls in glass and bidets. The Umiaq rooms are located in the new wing of the same name. Umiaq is the Greenlandic word for the traditional women’s boat. The Greenlandic artist Miki Jakobsen has decorated the rooms with original photo art – all with the women’s boat as the theme. In addition, the rooms have paintings by the local artist Arne Reimer.
Their gourmet cuisine is recognized as one of the very best in the whole country. The chefs are masters in their fields and use only the very finest Greenlandic and international raw materials. At the same time the experience is spiced by a bewitching view from the restaurant of the Ilulissat harbour and life on the waters of Disko Bay among the gigantic icebergs.
Café Ferdinand is the light and easy alternative to Restaurant Ulo. You can just pop in and have cold drinks after all the exertions of the day, enjoy cakes with coffee and tea with a fantastic view as well, or end the evening with a light meal and a drink before saying goodnight.
