In case no Black Friday vacation deals piqued your interest, Hotels.com is offering a promotion like no other. A completely free stay at Greenland’s Ittoqqortoormiit Guesthouse, anytime during the month of March. There’s only one catch. It’s in Ittoqqortoormiit, which means it’s not exactly easy or cheap to access. Ittoqqortoormiit is Greenland’s most remote town, between Northeast Greenland National Park and the longest fjord system in the world. Its population is an intimate 450 people, and there are no cars, buses, or trains for transportation — so, yes, you’ll either be walking or dogsledding.
The Ittoqqortoormiit Guesthouse is the town’s only hotel. It has seven rooms, and this is the first time it’s ever been available for booking on Hotels.com. To celebrate the special occasion, Hotels.com is offering to pick up the tab for any stay during March. All you’ll have to pay is 1 percent of the room rate, plus taxes and other applicable charges.
While the remote Ittoqqortoormiit is undoubtedly an epic adventure, just getting there is a journey in itself. First, you’ll have to fly to Reykjavik in Iceland, then to the northern Icelandic town of Akureyri. From there, you’ll take an hour-and-a-half-long flight to Constable Point in Greenland — flights are only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays — where you’ll then catch a 15-minute helicopter ride to Ittoqqortoormiit.
Once you’ve made it to Ittoqqortoormiit, you may be in the wilderness, but you won’t exactly get cabin fever. There are a host of things to do there, including visiting national parks, hot springs, fjords, and going kayaking, dog sledding, and — for the most intrepid travelers — Arctic expeditions.
You can book your free March stay anytime from now until December 31st.
