Basecamp Trapper’s Station is situated about 10 km from the edge of Longyearbyen in Bolterdalen housing 90 Alaskan huskies trained for mushing. Here you can see and feel how trappers lived in the wilderness hunting seals and reindeer. Buildings and the surroundings at the Trapper’s Station are a replica of old Trappers’ Stations in Svalbard. There are many images, books, artefacts and equipment that are very common for hunter and still used in some parts of the archipelago.
For Trapper’s Dinner we have developed interesting menu that helps conveying the history behind the hunters’ lives and cuisine. While enjoying the arctic food our guide will tell you about the history of Svalbard and lives of the trappers around the archipelago. The peaceful and relaxed atmosphere at Trapper’s Station allows you to escape every day stresses and enjoy the small things in life – such as delicious food!
