Arctic Luxury

After a day exploring the frozen Arctic land, you arrive to the remote boutique hotel in Kapp Linné, Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel. Experience the stillness and the Arctic light that is impossible to find other places. Despite the vast location you will enjoy a level of quality and comfort that is unexpected so far into the wilderness.

Day 1

The trips start when meeting your guide in the hotel reception. From here we drive to our expedition centre for the tour briefing and introduction to snowmobiling. You will be provided with a snowmobile suit, gloves, balaclava, helmet and winter boots for the drive. When everyone is all set, we head off into the white landscape.

We will enjoy a proper expedition lunch on the way and listen to the all-encompassing silence of the High Arctic. In the afternoon we arrive at our remote destination, and your hosts will introduce you to all the aspects of living in the Arctic wilderness.

Day 2

After a substantial breakfast it is time to pack our bags and warm up the snowmobile for a new day of adventures. After saying goodbye to your new friends at Isfjord Radio, we set direction towards the Russian mining town Barentsburg. Arriving in this distinct settlement is like taking a travel back in time. Get a feeling of what life looks like in an isolated, arctic town and visit some of the historical Russian buildings.

Depending on weather conditions you decide todays lunch options together with the guide. We expect to be back at your hotel in Longyearbyen around 4PM.

Clothing and equipment

Pack as little as possible for this trip. We recommend a waterproof backpack of around 35-42 litre. Your bigger luggage can be stored at your hotel while you are out exploring.

Necessary clothing in the Arctic is woollen thermals as the base layer, warm wool or flees trousers & sweater on the top. Two layers of socks (thin & thick woollen socks), windproof layer on the top. Spacious clothing is recommended because air is the best insulation. Windproof mittens with a warm liner or thick gloves, a warm hat, scarf or flees- tube is also a must have in Svalbard.

Good to have with you to Isfjord Radio is indoor shoes or extra woollen socks. Leisure wear/ casual clothing for dinner, toilet articles, sunglasses, sunscreen (not based on water because of low temperatures, binoculars to spot and study the wildlife, photo camera, contact lenses if you normally use glasses).

Note

Driver’s license for car or motorcycle is required for driving snowmobile. Your driver’s license must be presented before the tour starts. This trip requires minimum two snowmobile drivers without passengers. We may also need to change the number of drivers and passengers in the group. This is in terms of safety reasons.

This trip is not suitable for persons suffering from back pains or pregnant women. This is due to safety for your safety and wellbeing, and Basecamp Explorer can unfortunately not to take responsibility for health problems if this advice is neglected.

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms, thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planed 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.
