Ilimanaq is one of the smallest villages in the Disco Bay, located 15 kilometers south of Ilulissat. It has appr. 50 inhabitants and a small school with 10 students. It is a special experience to visit this charming place.
You have to sail to get to the settlement, and if you leave from Ilulissat you sail through the mouth of the icefiord, which is the UNESCO world heritage site.
Last year World of Greenland opened 15 luxury huts in Ilimanaq, which created tourism at this amazing place. These 15 huts are located right at the waterfront with a great view! You can sit on the terrace with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine while watching whales, and fisherman passing by.
Ilimanaq Lodge is the result of collaboration between three parties (Danish fund Real Dania Build, the local Qaasuitsup Municipality and the local tour agency World of Greenland)
The huts are 40 square meters and contain a nice bath, a toilet, and modern furniture.
These huts have everything you need. A great view from the couch, the terrace and even from your bed on the first floor.
Each hut is equipped with solar panels which are very effective with the midnight sun throughout the summer.
The settlement has two old buildings which they have restored. One of the buildings is today used as a reception with a conference room on the first floor, while the second one is a very nice restaurant with a great sea view. It is also possible just to visit Ilimanaq on a day tour, with the possibility to have lunch and dinner at the restaurant, and the food is amazing! They serve freshly caught fish from the bay, and reindeer or/and musk ox served with vegetables and some local spices.
