an adventure at the boarders of human existence

After a gratifying day of gliding over the glaciers, mountains, and frozen fjords by dogsled or snowmobile, or by an open boat safari across the Arctic Ocean, you’re home.

This 1933 built solitude outpost for radio operators doesn’t look like much from the outside. As you enter, though, you’ll discover a different world. The contrast between the surrounding rough coastal landscape and the modern luxury hotel inside is a sight to behold. It is easy to forget where you are, but a quick dip in the Arctic Ocean will bring you back.

Just like the original residents of the outpost, decades ago, you’ll gather around the table for dinner, a journey of tastes from the Arctic: smoked seal, whale, halibut with roe butter, and reindeer sausage. Most of the meat here is hunted by one of the three trappers left in Spitsbergen, then prepared in Isfjord Radio’s modern kitchen by our top chefs to a standard that would please even the toughest food critic.

Later in the evening, as you lay on your bed surrounded by the Arctic silence, you realize that it has been one of the best days of your life.

Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel offers unique wilderness accommodation 90 km from Longyearbyen. There are no roads connection from Longyearbyen, so you need snowmobile or boat transfers to get here. At summer time we have daily boat safaris from Longyearbyen to Isfjord Radio, in the winter a stay at Isfjord Radio is included in a snowmobile or dogsledding adventure.

Please note that Isfjord Radio is a wilderness hotel and to move outside you need a guide with rifle for polar bear protection. At summer time we have a weekly adventure program. You can by additional adventures with the room booking or evening before at Isfjord Radio.

After more than two months the polar night is slowly losing its grip and the days grow longer. On clear days the sky has different blue colors mixed with pink and purple shades.
