Base Camp Greenland

Location
Sermilik Fjord, East Greenland

Natural Habitat’s Base Camp Greenland offers an exclusive refuge of comfort in the Arctic, where guests enjoy rustic luxury surrounded by raw wilderness. Though it's located in one of the most remote places on the planet, the camp provides a host of amenities usually reserved for far more civilized locales. Guest accommodations are in eight individual safari-style tent cabins that house two persons each. Built of heavy-duty vinyl on raised platforms, each cabin has a private veranda with a view of the bay and Greenland ice sheet in the distance, offering a chance to enjoy a panorama of the wilderness in sublime solitude. 

Spacious cabin interiors are warmed by an individual heater—welcome on chilly nights—though long summer days here are often quite mild and dry. Cozy tent cabins have twin beds outfitted with warm comforters and comfortable pillows, a sitting bench, carpet runner, hanging clothing storage, and an en suite odorless dry toilet and washbasin. Hot showers are available in a separate bathhouse segregated by gender. Guests enjoy social time in the common room, which houses the kitchen and dining area and serves as a lecture space for presentations. Excellent meals are prepared by our creative camp chef, with fresh and varied ingredients arriving regularly.

A hallmark of Base Camp Greenland is its eco-conscious construction. In such a pristine environment, we take every care to ensure that our footprint is minimal. Camp facilities are set up for two months in the summer and, with the exception of the storage shed, taken down at the end of each season, to reduce impact. In order to accomplish this, water piping and plumbing systems must be relatively simple and located in only one building—thus our shower block that is separate from the individual cabins. Camp solid waste is hauled away and disposed of in a biodegradable manner at the municipal dump in the community of Tinit—nothing whatsoever is left on site. Only biodegradable soap is used in the kitchen and showers. Though the Arctic summer offers long hours of daylight, cabins also have interior light provided by small individual battery-operated lanterns.

Hotel Reykjavik Centrum

Location
Reykjavík, Iceland

Hotel Reykjavík Centrum, a TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice award winner for Top 10 Hotels in Iceland, maintains the charm of bygone times while incorporating contemporary Scandinavian design flair and amenities. Located on one of Reykjavík's oldest streets, Aðalstræti, in the heart of Iceland's compact capital, the newly renovated hotel occupies a building that was originally constructed in 1764. The town has kept the integrity of the original structure's design in mind as newly constructed buildings on either side have been built in the likeness of their historic predecessors.  The hotel, while retaining an intimate atmosphere and facade, has 89 guest rooms fitted with a slate of modern conveniences including satellite TV, telephone,  wireless Internet access, small refrigerator, radio, iron and board, hair dryer, safe, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.  Decor and furnishings feature knotty hardwood floors, crisp white cotton linens, sitting chair and writing desk. Excellent food and drink are available at the Uppsalir Bar and Café and Fjalakötturinn restaurant. The former is casual and informal, while the latter features a more upscale Icelandic dining experience showcasing creative interpretations of local seafood and traditional delicacies.
