If you’re lucky, the Northern Lights might also make an appearance.
Maybe you’ve spent the night in a glamping bubble, or even camped like a fancy pioneer in a covered wagon. But now the truly adventurous can experience Greenland’s great outdoors at the new Igloo Lodge that Off the Map Travel—the U.K.-based Arctic travel specialists—built this winter.
The lodge consists of five traditional igloos hand-built in the style of the local Inuit people. Each igloo sleeps two people and comes fully stocked with reindeer skins and sleeping bags to keep warm (plus a petroleum lamp for light).
While temperatures outside will be well below freezing, the temperatures hover around 32ºF inside the igloos. Bathrooms and a communal meal area are located inside a nearby wooden cabin.
As for activities, not only are snowshoeing and snowmobiling included in the package, but also two Northern Lights safaris, which is great considering most of the country lies within the Arctic Circle, making it one of the best places to see the aurora borealis in world.
While the exact location of the campsite hasn’t been revealed, Off the Map Travel will arrange transfers to and from the regional airport in Greenland for guests. To book this trip, visit Off the Map Travel’s website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
