Have you heard a glacier?

On the moraine shore of the icy Adolf fjord, at the edge of the blue glacier, well hidden in nature, stands Nordenskiold Lodge. It is the northernmost commercial cabin in the world. With no running water or electricity. We use wood to heat the cabin, sauna and shower, and get our drinking water from the melting glacier.

Just like the explorers decades ago, you´ll spend days walking the surroundings, climbing the blue glacier, skiing around the fjord and the snowy valleys.

As the arctic night surrounds the pine cabin you can lay your head on the soft pillow, wrap yourself in the warm blankets, and listen to the Arctic silence.

A stay at Nordenskiöld Lodge is an experience of splendid solitude and a detox from your online and busy life.

Wooden Cabin

The Nordenskiöld glacier is part of the larger glacier system stretching all the way to the north coast of Spitsbergen, making the northern parts of the high Arctic Archipelago very accessible from the Nordenskiöld Lodge. This is as far as you can go on motorized vehicles – from here on it’s either skis or dog sled if you want to explore further.

There are 5 bedrooms with fantastic Arctic views, 10 comfortable beds, indoor toilet, and a traditional wood sauna.

During winter you can reach the lodge by dog sled or snowmobile. During summer, you can reach the cabin by boat from Longyearbyen – a two hour boat ride in good weather. We use open polar circle boats to cross the Isfjorden to Nordenskiöld Lodge.

No matter which season you choose to visit, one thing is certain: you are in for an adventurous trip into the true High Arctic! You can find the different adventures to Nordenskiöld Lodge below with set departures. We have minimum of 4 participants on the trips, but you can book them even as a single traveller. You are then joining other travellers on the adventure to Nordenskiöld Lodge.

Join us for a three-day trip to Nordenskiöld Lodge – the northernmost cabin for commercial trips on Svalbard. About 100 miles northeast of Longyearbyen lays the mighty glacier Nordenskiöld. Just at the foot of the glacier, you can find our new Basecamp Nordenskiöld.
