A touch of madness
The Svalbard Islands are located half way between Norway and the North Pole, at 74 to 81 degrees north. Our five basecamps and a wooden ship form a circuit of complementary experiences, and a travel in time. From the simplicity of the old days in the Arctic, to the modern and comfortable hotel lodging. Traveling by dogs, boat or snowmobile between our remote outposts will feel a bit mad. And it is. But in the hands of our guides, you will be perfectly safe.
We have five basecamps and a wooden ship at Svalbard. Together they form a circuit of complementary experiences. Our basecamps are small, intimate and spread out around Spitsbergen. Some without road connection.
Let our guides take you dog sledding. Drive your own snowmobile far into the wild nature. Climb a mountain or explore an ice cave. Experience the arctic silence.
During summer in Svalbard the only way to reach our remote outposts is by boat. We offer large and comfortable boats or open and smaller boats for those who would like to get closer to nature.
From 20 May 2019 ISFJORD-EKSPRESSEN is Basecamp Explorer´s new shuttle boat with daily departures between Longyearbyen and Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel at Kapp Linné.
