Now this has got to be the most creative promotion we’ve ever seem from any of the hotel OTAs: Hotels.com will give you a FREE! stay for up to a week … at a place that, we can say quite confidently, was not previously on your planning radar:
Discover the world’s most #RemoteAF hotel
In Ittoqqortoormiit in Greenland
Itto-what you say? You may not be able to pronounce it, but you’ll certainly want to visit it, especially as Hotels.com is putting nights up for grabs so you can stay there in March 2019*. 450 inhabitants, 800km to the nearest town and nestled between mighty mountains, the icy Arctic Ocean, towering icebergs and the world’s longest fjord system; Ittoqqortoormiit is truly off-grid.
Among the no doubt countless attractions:
This is an epic #RemoteAF destination, where you can sled with wolves, kayak in the Arctic and see the Northern Lights
Warning! Ittoqqortoormiit is not for the faint-hearted – polar bears & dangerous wildlife roam the island at night!
The island is frozen for nine months of the year and spring temperatures range from -20 degrees Celsius to zero. Don’t forget your thermals & layers!
It takes two planes, a jaw-dropping helicopter and a bumpy ATV ride to get here – the journey’s an adventure itself.
Yes. Yes, that does certainly sound like an adventure, doesn’t it?
We’ve been to the other side of Greenland to visit the Ilulissat Icefjord World Heritage Site, but the east side, well that truly is a remote part of the world indeed.
Travel to and from Ittoqqortoormiit and all other costs and expenses of any trip are not included in this offer.
Mind you, if you were planning a European trip anyway, don’t forget that Icelandair has that great free stopover deal … so your extra costs would simply be the flights from Reykjavík to Constable Point with Air Iceland Connect, and then a short helicopter ride with Air Greenland.
