Bonfire talk at the Trapper’s Station

1,5 hours storytelling at Trapper’s Station

Join us at Trapper’s Station where stories are told by the fireplace. How is it to live at the top of the world? How was it to live like a trapper on Svalbard? Listen to our guide as he reveals the secrets behind the stories.


Basecamp Explorer invites you to a sit down by the bonfire at Trapper’s Station in Bolterdalen.  Under the stars, we hear stories from a rich history Svalbard, of trappers, arctic wildlife, locals, mining and maybe some personal trips of your guide.

Trapper’s Station is situated about 10 km from the edge of Longyearbyen, in Bolterdalen. It is a replica of old trappers’ stations and houses 90 Alaskan huskies trained for mushing. The station allows guests to see and feel how trappers lived in the wilderness hunting seals and reindeer. Buildings and the surroundings at the Trapper’s Station are designed to look like the original hunting communities in Spitsbergen.

Welcome to Trapper’s Station! We light the fire and gather around the fireplace to keep warm as we enjoy the polar night and vast wilderness around us. We enjoy warm drinks and biscuits and the guide tells us about the northern light. If we are lucky we might even get the opportunity to experience this amazing phenomenon, aurora borealis, ourselves.
