Greenland Hotels

There are hotels in major towns, but apart from the modern hotels in Ilulissat, Narsaq, Narsarsuaq, Nuuk, Qaqortoq, Kangerlussuaq, Tasiilaq and Sisimiut, most hotels are small and have limited facilities. Hotel bookings should be arranged prior to arrival. Keep in mind that breakfast is usually included with the room. Youth hostel-type accommodations can be found in almost every town and even in many small villages: Inquire at the local tourist office. Take a sleeping bag along if you plan to stay in hostels. Another alternative is the network of seamen's homes, once used only by seafarers, which provide very basic accommodations with a shared bath. Book well in advance for the summer.Read More ...

In more remote areas, you can stay overnight at sheep-farming stations owned by local shepherds (in South Greenland) or at chalets (don't let the name mislead you—these are usually very primitive but cost nothing). Plan on taking your own food and a sleeping bag.

Tent camping is another option. Outside towns and built-up areas, camping is permitted almost anywhere, except in ruins and on cultivated land in South Greenland. In towns and villages, there are no official camping sites, but most communities have laid out specific areas for tenting (inquire locally at the tourist office). Be sure your tent and sleeping bag are rated for the severe weather that can blow in at any time.< Show Less
