more than travel

A trip to Svalbard is full of spectacular contrasts. In the dark, we turn our eyes to the adventurous northern lights and get even closer to each other around the fire. When the sun returns, we take the scooter over snow-covered plains and fjords, where the outposts Isfjord Radio and Nordenskiöld Lodge await with comfort and lots of hospitality. In the summer, skis and scooters are replaced with mountain boots and a boat, and we encounter an intense wildlife under the sun that never goes down. Svalbard is raw, honest and infinitely beautiful – a very special natural universe for the huge, but close experiences.

You wake up to the sound of the glacier or in a former radio station from 1933. Nordensköld Lodge is the world’s northernmost commercial lodge, while Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel is a lovely hotel far outside of civilization. Our places are completely unique and with lots of character.


A special guest

We have had a visit from National Geographic and head chef Kristen Kish, who has hunted arctic produce together with our head chef at Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel, Rogier Jansen. The result can be seen in the fantastic series ‘Restaurants at the End of the World’.

Our philosophy

more than travel

Our isolated and unique base battles are the perfect starting point to experience Svalbard’s wild and untouched nature. Throughout the year, we arrange trips and expeditions for individual travelers, and we tailor programs for groups and companies. Our guests get an authentic and unique experience, and are active participants when we are on tour. Together we get the good feeling of mastery in the Arctic, and together we contribute to better conditions in Kenya. Read more about our projects below.
