Hotel Kangerlussuaq
The hotel is directly connected to the main building in the airport complex. It has nice and fairly large double rooms with private bathrooms. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria next to the reception and Kangerlussuaq’s most exclusive restaurant is situated in the main airport building. Wireless internet connection can be purchased.

Due to Air Greenland’s early departure from and late arrival to Copenhagen, same day connections from airports around the world may not be possible. In other words you must plan to arrive in Copenhagen the day before the Basic Package starts and leave the day after it ends. We offer the following accommodation in Copenhagen on 26 October and 31 October or 3 November:

Grand Hotel Copenhagen

If you arrive earlier than 26 October or leave later than 31October or 3 November you may request extra nights upon booking. Extra nights are subject to availability and prices for extra nights may vary.
