The Exeter Hotel enjoys a coveted location on Reykjavik’s old harbor in a mixed-use neighborhood of retail, restaurants, cultural spaces and local residences. Though the hotel is housed in a restored 1904 building, its vibe is decidedly contemporary while paying homage to the era when fishing and trade were the predominant industries on the site. Inside, an open floor plan and high ceilings lend a sense of spaciousness in the lobby. Superior rooms have en suite bathrooms with walk-in shower and hair dryer, writing desk, complimentary Wi-Fi, smart TV, telephone, safe, mini fridge, coffee- and tea-making facilities.
Central to the Exeter’s identity is its ultra-green construction and operations. Design and decor incorporate industrial elements that support the hotel’s deep commitment to environmental sustainability, including extensive use of locally sourced concrete that aids in fire and earthquake protection, reduces the use of paint, and saves energy in maintaining a comfortable temperature within. The Exeter is powered and heated exclusively by geothermal and hydropower sources, and its cold water comes from a natural local well. Iceland-produced Rockwool insulation—a stone-based fiber product--is used for sound absorption, while a multitude of other environmentally friendly materials – many of which are recycled – are incorporated throughout the hotel’s construction. Bath amenities are plastic-free (including toothbrushes made of bamboo), and even the Nespresso coffee pods are recycled via a special bin in the guest rooms.
Perched high on a steep hillside above the picturesque village of Tasiilaq in remote East Greenland, Hotel Angmagssalik enjoys sweeping vistas of the surrounding mountains and King Oscar's Bay. With the ambience of a guesthouse plus a surprising array of amenities for such a remote location, the hotel's 30 simple but comfortable rooms offer the best accommodations in town. Rooms have individual heating, private bathroom with shower, a small work desk and satellite TV. Wi-Fi is available for an extra charge. Public spaces include a spacious contemporary lounge for relaxing plus a smaller reading lounge, a large dining room with a full wall of picture windows, and outdoor terraces from which to enjoy the panoramic views. A restaurant and bar on site serve three buffet meals a day, often featuring fresh local fish, with a wide selection of drinks. The center of the village is located within walking distance, but down a very steep hill.
Base Camp Greenland
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 camp's inviting yurt, a comfortable, well-lit indoor space for lecture presentations and lounging, plus a spacious deck from which we can take in the view of the bay. Retreat to the dining tent for excellent meals 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 Kulusuk enjoys a scenic perch on the rocky east coast of Greenland, with heart-stopping views of Apusiaajik Glacier and Isikajia Mountain. Guests here have a special opportunity to interact with locals and glimpse Greenland’s traditional culture. As the only lodging in this small Inuit hunter settlement, it provides simple but modern, comfortable accommodations with a warm and homey atmosphere. The 34 guest rooms have private bathrooms with hot showers, telephone, television and Wi-Fi, and each offers a mountain or sea view. Public spaces include a small gift shop, bar and dining room lined with windows looking out onto the icy fjord and snowy mountains beyond. Wholesome, varied meals, including fresh fruits and vegetables and local fare, are served buffet-style.
