Over three decades ago, a single expedition to Greenland dramatically transformed the life of South Tyrolian extreme athlete Robert Peroni, leading to the establishment of The Red House. Nestled in Tasiilaq, the capital of East Greenland on the Kong Oscar Fjord, The Red House Hotel serves as more than just accommodation; it is an inviting doorway to the rich Inuit culture and the breathtaking natural grandeur of East Greenland. Cultivating an intimate, homely atmosphere, The Red House is open to visitors from around the globe, serving as an information hub offering advice on local activities, potential routes, and current weather conditions.
