3 days summer adventure to Isfjord Radio in Spitsbergen

Combine work with unforgettable adventures! We would like to welcome you to Longyearbyen, the northern most town in Europe! And from the edge of the inhabitable world you will continue even further into the wilderness! There are no roads beyond Longyearbyen, so we will use our open boats to cross over the icy fjord to our Adventure Hotel Isfjord Radio. Here, you really are on the border of civilization –half way to Greenland. Outside the northern most city, it’s only the vast wilderness and arctic silence waiting for you. Isfjord Radio offers you modern hotel in a rough arctic landscape surrounded with arctic silence topped with astonishing food and good meeting facilities. What else can you ask?

Day 1

Arrival to Svalbard where our Basecamp guide meets you at the airport and takes care of transport to Basecamp Hotel. This is the basecamp for your expedition in Spitsbergen, decorated in authentic trapper’s style down to the very last detail. Our reception wishes you warmly welcome and takes care of the check in to your room. You can choose to spend the afternoon on your own wandering around the world’s northernmost town or we can arrange meeting room with lunch for you to get a good start for the agenda. Or maybe you want to try dogsledding and a dinner in Trapper’s style?

Then it’s time to dress in the rescue suites and get transport to the harbour, where our open boats are waiting.

After arrival to Isfjord Radio and a warm welcome from the staff, we will be served a 2-course lunch. Conference room with beautiful view over the Arctic Ocean is available after lunch. Before dinner we can go out to explore the great area of Kapp Linné, and learn more about the old radio station. We can recommend a warm sauna and a quick swim in the Arctic Ocean. It’s a perfect way to wrap up the adventurous day!
