ISFJORD RADIO ADVENTURE HOTEL

From mid-April to August, the midnight sun shines non-stop in Svalbard. An abundance of Arctic marine life is returning to the island during summer, and all the Arctic bird cliffs are teeming with life. Isfjord Radio is situated on the windswept grounds of Kapp Linne, which is the perfect starting point for your Arctic adventure. Make sure to keep an eye out for the Arctic terns nesting close to the hotel, as they can get quite protective of their eggs. Observe the Svalbard reindeer casually strolling past the dining room window, and if you are lucky, you might spot an Arctic fox searching for chicks and eggs between the houses.

Clothing and equipment

In spite of Spitsbergen’s northern location, the archipelago has a relatively mild climate compared to other areas on the same latitude. In summer, the average temperature in Longyearbyen is approximately 5 ° C. There is normally very little rain, although it is not unusual that there is fog and low clouds. Even if there is little rain, the ground is often wet due to the melting snow. The weather on Svalbard changes quickly, and local variations can be huge – so it is better to have little bit too much clothes with you. Below you can find our packing advise for your adventure in Svalbard.

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.
