ISFJORD RADIO ADVENTURE HOTEL

From April to August, the sun never sets in Svalbard. On the windswept grounds of Kapp Linne, you can observe how the sun patrols the sky in almost uniform circles during summer. Enjoy the view from the Arctic Isfjord Radio sauna and go for a swim under the midnight sun. The magnificent view is seen by more fulmars than human beings, and you will be one of the lucky few experiencing the wildlife at Isfjord Radio on this particular day.

Day 1

Wake up early this morning and enjoy your breakfast before your adventure starts at 8 am. The guide meets you at the hotel, and from here on we continue to the harbour where ISFJORD-EKSPRESSEN is all set for departure. Get comfortable as we head out on the fjord with a steady course towards Barentsburg and Isfjord Radio.

The birdlife is teeming in the summer and with a steady gaze you might also find larger species such as whales and polar bears. We shortly stop by the bird cliff and historical Grumant, before moving on to Barentsburg. Spend two hours exploring this colourful, Russian mining town. About 400 people live here, and so does Svalbard’s only cat. Work your way through 270 steps to reach the main street and get a real appetizer before the afternoon lunch at Isfjord Radio.

In Isfjord Radio you are greeted by your generous hosts, and a home-made lunch awaits. This afternoon you can sign up for additional hikes to explore more of the arctic land. The hikes can also be pre-booked before arrival. Finish up your day in the warm sauna at the sea cliff and enjoy a view that makes you forget about time and place. Who knows what kind of wildlife will swim by tonight?

Day 2

Many of us have the Big Five of Svalbard on our bucket list. Therefore, keep scanning to spot the Polar Bear, Walrus, Arctic Fox, Svalbard Reindeer and Ivory gull. Who will we come across this weekend?

Many of us have the Big Five of Svalbard on our bucket list, and Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel is the perfect location to come across several of the animal species on this list. Sign up for an additional adventure such as a full day hike or a lunch cruise to the glacier front. Keep your eyes open for walrus, polar bear, seal, arctic fox and the curious Svalbard reindeer.

Arrive home to your hosts that have everything planned for a memorable evening. We often gather around the bonfire for a refreshment when the wind favourable. A real gem of the Isfjord experience before Isfjord Radio’s own chef is calling you indoors for dinner, always with a touch of the Arctic.

MORE THAN TRAVEL

As part of Basecamp Explorer Spitsbergen’s efforts to be climate neutral, we add an additional CO2 and enviromental investment of NOK 250 per guest.  This is donated in its entirety to do good projects contributing to a sustainable future in our destinations.

Clothing and equipment

Prepare yourself for some wind and an average summer temperature of around 5°C and do remember your swim suite for your Arctic spa!

Even if we do have warmer days in Svalbard, it is always better to have warm clothes. A proper local always wear wool thermals closest to the body in one or two layers. In summertime a thick sweater or fleece jacket might be enough as a mid-layer, but make sure you top it all up with a wind- and waterproof layer on top. If you tend to get cold it is smart to bring along a light down or primaloft jacket as well. At last, steady shoes that can get dirty, woollen socks, gloves, buff, hat and sunglasses.

Note

Isfjord Radio is a wilderness hotel and to move outside you need a guide with rifle for polar bear protection.

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms or thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planned route, and this might lead up us not arriving to the planned destination. It can also mean that we need to use a different transportation style or accommodation than what was described in the program. We will always do our outmost to give our guests a great experience in the Arctic, but we must be aware that characteristics of the destination.
