TAILOR MADE TRAVEL FOR YOUR COMPANY!

Would you like to have your board meeting, conference event, incentive group, private guiding or even a kick-off event in the middle of the true Arctic?

Have you considered addressing new and challenging tasks for your company in one of the most extreme places in the world? Let yourself and your colleagues be inspired by the existence at the extremities. In the world’s most true wilderness we offer unique locations for your next meeting. This is Svalbard, an archipelago half way between Norway and the North Pole, only a 3 hours flight away from Oslo.

What is the difference compared to other venues or other companies? Rather than offering traditional team building activities, you will take part in Arctic experiences. You have to snowmobile, hike or sail to get to our Basecamps. There are no roads. There are instead Arctic weather, wildlife and 60 000 square kilometres of wilderness. We guide you through it, but you have to take part yourself. It is fun, challenging, exhilarating, and empowering. This is a trip of a lifetime.

 

We have several Basecamps at Svalbard – from hotels to lodge and from sailing ship to tents. All with their own distinctive character. A variation in size makes it easy for businesses to claim the whole property for your events, ensuring privacy when needed.

BASECAMP HOTEL

After a 3 hour flight from Oslo, Basecamp Hotel lays in downtown Longyearbyen, only 10 minutes drive from the airport. Step inside, and the mood changes as you immerse in a trapper atmosphere. The walls are covered in driftwood, seal skin and tar paper. Friendly and personable staff greets you. Here you can breathe, lower your shoulders and relax.

Rated as the 3rd best Bed and Breakfast Hotel in Norway Basecamp Hotel fits up to 42-46 guests in 16 rooms. The Travellers Club can seat 20 persons for meetings, and is equipped with a big screen for projectors. All thinkable meeting facilities are available in Longyearbyen for small and large groups.

Basecamp Hotel

At the heart of Longyearbyen, the northernmost town in the world, lies the home of the modern arctic trappers. See the walls covered with driftwood, sealskins and objects that illustrate the past and present of life in the Arctic.

ISFJORD RADIO ADVENTURE HOTEL

Venturing off the track and into the wilderness you find our Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel. At winter time it is a 100 km snowmobile excursion from Longyearbyen and in summer we ride boats 50 km across Isfjorden. You arrive with a smile on your face!

This historical gem at the end of the world, fosters engagement and inspiration for you and your colleagues. This is Svalbard’s premier grand hotel, originally built as a radio station in 1933.  Immersed in a majestic polar landscape, participants will find it easy to stay focused on your agenda. Isfjord Radio has luxurious guest rooms, a style that surprises as the next neighbours are Greenland and the North Pole. Indulge in the unexpected luxury. Here travellers can enjoy three- to five-course Arctic signature dinners in one of Norways most spectacular hotels. Polar bears may just wander by outside the window.

Isfjord Radio Hotel accommodates up to 50 guests in 22 guest rooms. It is well suited for meetings and conferences for up to 50 persons. The main meeting room takes 20-25 persons and the lounge in the old station fits comfortably 10 persons. We can convert the fireside living room into a meeting room for 40-50 persons. The uninsulated boat house fits 30 – 40 persons in the summertime. On the whole station there is good 4G mobile network and wireless in two of the main buildings.

Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel

This 1933 built solitude outpost for radio operators doesn’t look like much from the outside, but as you enter you’ll discover a different world. The contrast between the rough landscape and the modern hotel is a sight to behold.

NORDENSKIÖLD LODGE & BASECAMP ARCTIC VOYAGERS

For smaller groups of 10-12 people we suggest our Basecamp Arctic Voyagers or Nordenskiöld Lodge. Our voyager’s vessel, a three masted wooden schooner, is fitted with a ice strengthened hull. With a 360 degree panorama view from the deck she is a perfect vessel for Arctic Safaris. You are ensured an exclusive experience as the vessel, S/V Linden offers only 7 cabins. She was built in 1993 as a replica of the 1920 Linden with love and funding from volunteer supporters in Åland, Finland.  The dining lounge easily sits 30 persons, so there is plenty of space for meetings. We have 220 power, but access to internet depends on location.

The world’s most northern commercial cabin, Nordenskiöld Lodge, is a cozy and comfortable cabin for 10 persons by the foot of the Nordenskiöld glacier and the 1000 meters tall peaks around Billefjorden. We bring you here by open boats or snowmobiles. This is indeed how far you are allowed to travel by snowmobile on guided tours. There is no running water or electricity. We use wood to heat the cabin, and get our drinking water from the melting glacier. There are 5 bedrooms with fantastic Arctic views, 10 comfortable beds, indoor toilet, and a great wooden sauna. And there is guaranteed no wi-fi or phone signals. Here you are totally cut off from the modern world and can focus in arctic solitude around you.

Arctic sailing with S/V Linden

How about sailing through the arctic oceans, immersed in the majestic polar landscape, with the sleepy sounds of creaking wooden ship? Just around the corner from North Pole lies the special gathering of arctic islands – the Svalbard Archipelago. The only way to move around these icy islands is on the sea – just like the ancient explorers did.

Nordenskiöld Lodge

On the moraine shore of the icy fjord, at the edge of the blue glacier, stands our hidden expedition lodge. Switch off your phone. There’s no use for it here, out in the total solitude of Spitsbergen.

All our kitchens in our Basecamps across Svalbard use wholefood and local ingredients whenever possible. We take pride in serving you tasty homemade food for all your meals. We have arrangements with the local trappers, and can offer you some real Arctic treats such as seal, reindeer and catch from the Arctic Ocean. Our chefs make sure you get refreshments through out the day to keep your energy levels up during your meetings. The chefs are happy to prepare any dish to meet one’s dietary needs. All our locations have bars with all rights.

"When EnterNett decided to celebrate the 20 years anniversary, we picked Svalbard as the destination. We went for a tailored adventure with overnight at Isfjord Radio, an amazing nature experience with whales and walruses up close, lunch on the glacier and a visit to the Russian settlement Barentsburg. Basecamp guides were friendly, knowledgeable and professional in all possible ways. And we will never forget the meals, it is nothing one could wait from a remote outpost like Isfjord Radio. We got served 4-course dinners and each of them was a culinary adventure. A real highlight at the end of the adventurous day!"
