Visit the Seamen's Homes when travelling in Greenland and be sure to be greeted with a smile.

Like the three Seamen's Homes, Hotel Avannaa is a non-commercial hotel. This means that all the profits go to diaconal and social work in the surrounding areas and in Denmark. We have a desire to be a living room for the cities we are in, where everyone is welcome. 
Hotel Avannaa was acquired in early 2020.

When choosing to stay at Hotel Avannaa, you can be sure that you are at the same time supporting a welfare in Greenland. Be it our staff visiting the inmates at the prison in Aasiaat and Nuuk, distributing of coffee and newspapers at the harbours around Greenland, inviting to christmas eve for those who might else be sitting alone and much more. Thank you for choosing Hotel Avannaa.


Regardless of the being your first or tenth visit you can rest assured that we have lots of things for you to do here in and around Ilulissat.
