Intrepid explorers looking to go off the grid may want to consider a trip to East Greenland, home to the world’s most remote hotel.
The Ittoqqotoormiit Guesthouse is located in a tiny village of the same name, which can be reached from the UK with just three flights, a helicopter ride, and a scenic drive.
Because of its incredible Arctic Circle location, the hotel is surrounded by spectacular scenery. We’re talking icebergs, glaciers, vast landscapes home to wildlife like polar bears, and some breathtaking fjords.
Then there are the Northern Lights. Thanks to the lack of light pollution, Ittoqqotoormiit makes for ideal Aurora Borealis viewing conditions, and guests can enjoy some pretty epic views of the natural phenomenon.
There is a reason Greenland is one of the best countries for seeing the Northern Lights, after all.
Although Ittoqqotoormiit is the most isolated town in Greenland with only 450 inhabitants, there’s plenty of adventure to be had for visitors.
It’s right by the highest mountain in the Arctic, Mt. Gunnbjorns Fjeld, as well one of the the biggest national parks in the world, the National Park of North-East Greenland.
Then there’s the fact it’s also surrounded by icebergs and glaciers, with wildlife spanning whales, seals and polar bears to look out for.
There is also a plethora of activities to be found whether you want to go on a snowshoe hike, dog sledding, Northern Lights spotting or simply want to check out the village which includes a tiny museum!
