  • Isfjord Radio, Spitsbergen

  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

Experience a comfortable overnight stay in the Arctic wilderness. Isfjord Radio is a charming hotel situated on the windswept grounds of Kapp Linné. This is the place to observe the Arctic bird- and wildlife and unique dining experiences.

By checking in to Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel, you are signing up for a stay in the heart of Svalbard. Soak in the breath-taking view of the Arctic landscape, and observe the wildlife casually wander past at your destination. Bordering Isfjord Radio is Kapp Linné bird sanctuary, and occasionally you can spot a cunning Arctic fox or polar bear hunting for bird eggs. Keep your eyes open, and perhaps you can cross of some of Svalbard’s “Big Five” from your bucket list.

Day 1
2.30PM Pick up at your hotel/guesthouse in Longyearbyen.

3PM Departure with ISFJORD-EKSPRESSEN, with a steady course westward. The crossing takes about an hour, depending on the weather and your hosts will warmly welcome you upon arrival at Isfjord Radio.

5PM-6.30PM We invite you for a walk of the station, to share the fascinating history of this unique destination. Enjoy you afternoon exploring the library, jump in the ocean and warm up in the sauna, or simply enjoy the view and a nice drink in the living room.

8PM A 4-course dinner is served. Please advise if you have any food allergies that we need to keep in mind for the meals during the trip. Due to the remote location this is an important information for the chef’s meal preparation.

Day 2
This morning you wake up to an unforgettable view. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea with a panoramic view of the Arctic ocean and Cape Linné bird sanctuary.

8AM-10AM Breakfast

10AM-4PM: We organize day trips which you can book in addition to your stay at Isfjord Radio all days of the week. Please contact us upon booking to select your day trips. You can join a RIB-safari or a hike to experience more of the beautiful Arctic nature. On our 5-hour open RIB-safari we embark on our Polarcirkle boat to the north side of Isfjorden. In Trygghamna we will meet the eye-catching landmark Alkhornet, a large bird mountain surrounded by a lush and beautiful landscape. We continue our cruise to Ymerbukta, where the scenic Esmark glacier dives into the bay. As we float between small icebergs in the green glacial water you can hear the ice crackle.

If you prefer to hike rather that do boat safaris, you can join your Isfjord Radio guide on one of our favourite tracks along the old radio poles of the station given three optional route and activity alternatives. The hike will be approximately 10-16 km long depending on route.

5PM Return to Longyearbyen with ISFJORD-EKSPRESSEN.

MINIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 4 persons

- Accommodation in double room at Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel incl. breakfast and dinner.

MORE THAN TRAVEL:
As part of Basecamp Explorer Spitsbergen’s efforts to be climate neutral, we add an additional CO2 and environmental investment of NOK 250 per guest.  This is donated in its entirety to do good projects contributing to a sustainable future in our destinations.

NOTE:
Isfjord Radio is a wilderness hotel and to move outside you need a guide with rifle for polar bear protection. We recommend you to book day trips. RIB-safaris is not suitable for persons suffering from back pains or pregnant women. Basecamp takes no responsibility to any health issues, due to neglecting this advice.

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms or thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planned route, and this might lead up us not arriving to the planned destination. It can also mean that we need to use a different transportation style or accommodation than what was described in the program. We will always do our outmost to give our guests a great experience in the Arctic, but we must be aware that characteristics of the destination.
