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!

Set high in the Arctic Ocean, the remote Svalbard archipelago extends between 74 and 81° north. It is the northernmost place in Europe and is the farthest north you can travel by scheduled flight.

Svalbard offers Arctic experiences on the edge of the inhabitable world, but it’s not as inaccessible as people might think. Start in the morning from the central Europe and you will be in Longyearbyen by mid-day. And in one of our remote stations by the evening. There are no roads beyond Longyearbyen. Here, you really are on the edge of civilization. Outside the city only, the vast wilderness is waiting for you. Despite its history of coal mining and trapping, Spitsbergen is still mainly pristine wilderness. One of the most fragile ecosystems anywhere on Earth.

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.

Escape the town lights and busy life and join us for a unique Trapper’s Dinner at Trapper’s Station.

There are three essential things that are vital to the citizens of Longyearbyen; a snowmobile, a rifle for polar bear protection, and a husky. The ones who do not have their own husky, will happily help with others.

We would like to invite you to spend your morning as a husky handler at Basecamp Trapper’s Station, situated 10 km outside of town. Our 90 Alaska huskies are not only excellent sled dogs, they are lovable fur-balls that can never get enough of cuddling. They will be more than excited by your visit and the time spent in our dog yard. Prepare yourself for a lot of fun and muddy paws prints!
