A modern trapper´s hotel

In the center of Longyearbyen lies the home of the modern-day arctic trappers. The hotel is decorated in authentic trapper´s style down to the very last detail, and our staff will care for you on a personal level. The glass-roofed Cognac loft is a good place to relax, looking up in a sky filled with northern lights.

The interior of Basecamp Hotel is covered with driftwood, sealskin, maps, pictures and objects that illustrate the past and the present of life in the Arctic.

The rooms are all different, with comfortable beds, private bathrooms and no TVs.

From Longyearbyen we take you to our remote outposts in the wilderness. Let your arctic story begin!

Once you’ve come this far, you have to go further. After a good night’s sleep at Basecamp Hotel, you’re ready for new adventures. Follow us to one of our further destinations: Isfjord Radio, Nordenskiöld Lodge or North Pole Camp.  You won’t be the same person when we return to Longyearbyen. You’ll be one of the few, those who know the secrets that only the fjords, glaciers, and mountains of the Arctic whisper.  For shorte stays there are several interesting day trips starting from the reception daily. We recommend that you book your trip beforehand, to make sure there is enough room for the whole party. See below for a list of day trips in summer and winter.

This 3-day program gives you the full adventure program in Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel. Overnight at the wildest hotel in Svalbard, activities every day, 5-course dinners and a proper Arctic Spa. Join in this summer and hunt for the magical moments and wildlife experiences.
