Accommodation in Sisimiut
There are 3 accommodation options in Sisimiut depending on price and preference : Hotel Sisimiut, The Seamen's Home or "Sømandshjemmet" and the Sisimiut Youth Hostel. There is generally a shortage of accommodation in town during the high tourist season, which August is, so we encourage participants to book their accommodation as early as possible.
ARTEK has prebooked rooms in both hotels (with arrival April 30 and Departure May 4) for AIC2018 participants but the rooms will, however, only be held until 9 weeks prior to the conference start, whereafter there will be no special availability ensured for accommodation at the 2 hotels. This means that it is recommendable to book your hotel room by March 31st at the latest as to be ensured a room.
