Old Camp

A cozy hostel in Kangerlussuaq

Old Camp is a cozy and traditional hostel in Kangerlussuaq, located 2 km (1.25 mi) from the airport and offers a fantastic view of West Greenland’s longest fjord. Located away from the city lights, you might be lucky enough to experience the spectacular Northern Lights directly from your room in the winter.

In Greenland, nature and outdoor activities are the major attractions. For this reason, Old Camp’s accommodations are simply furnished, yet comfortable and well-outfitted with all of the essential amenities.

Old Camp consists of three accommodation buildings and a fourth that serves as the reception and souvenir shop. The Qajak and Tuukkaq buildings are newly renovated and feature double rooms with two single beds that can be joined as a double bed. The Ulo building consists of bunk bed rooms. Each building features common toilets and showers in the hallway. In every building, you will find a communal dining and living room, perfect for relaxing and sharing stories with fellow travelers.

Our single and double rooms are small, but modestly furnished with all of the essential amenities, including beds, linens, desk, chair and a small wardrobe. Shower and toilet are located in the hallway.
