A LITTLE RED HOUSE with icebergs floating past!
This is real life in a Greenlandic village where the community lives largely from hunting and fishing, the pace of life is entirely Greenlandic and there are a clutch of little red houses…
A perfect spot for walking, kayaking, fishing, painting or just watching ice-bergs – and occasionally whales. Explore as much or as little as you like and return to your little red house each evening.
Each house has a very different character and a unique view. They are quite basic but absolutely authentically Greenlandic – all have heating, a kitchenette and a dry toilet. Some have electricity and others have kerosene lamps. Everybody joins in with collecting water from the village tap and there are communal village shower facilities
Your hosts here are Uta and Ingo Wolff, a German couple who fell in love with Greenland and have made their home here, running an excellent fish restaurant as well as the little red houses.
To get here, you travel through Ilulissat, the ‘city’ which is home to the world-famous ice-fjord, disgorging ice-bergs the size of churches into Disko Bay. You’ll have time to stay a night here and take a boat trip to see the ice-bergs before travelling north by fishing boat to the tiny settlement of Oqaatsut, and your very own Little Red House.
