Trapper’s Hotel

In Longyearbyen, Svalbard, your accommodation options include the unique Trapper’s Hotel, which opened in 1998. The hotel is at the end of the pedestrian street, right in the middle of the capital town Longyearbyen, and is the base for expeditions into Svalbard’s wilderness.

This replica of an old trapper’s station is located in Bolterdalen, approx. 10 km east of Longyearbyen. It opened in 2000 and houses 80-90 Alaskan huskies trained for dog mushing. All of our dog sled expeditions, summer and winter, depart from this centre, which also offers accommodation in the Trapper’s Hotel or an authentic trapper’s meal in Gamma.

 

Isfjord Radio boutique hotel

 

Isfjord Radio boutique hotel

At Kap Linné, around 90 km west of the capital Longyearbyen, Isfjord Radio was once a crucial outpost for telecommunication with the mainland, operating as a weather station and issuing shipping and aviation alerts. Today, this wilderness hotel conversion welcomes visitors with every luxury and creature-comfort, right by the Barents Sea horizon, at the fringes of the civilised world. The Tempelfjord

Travel some 80 km east of Longyearbyen and you’ll arrive at one of Svalbard’s many unique fjords, Tempelfjord. In wintertime, the Ship in the Ice is frozen in the ice, right by the head of the Von Post Glacier. As our guest you can stay on board the ship, the “The Norderlicht” schooner from 1910, which has been perfectly restored to working order and offers you an authentic Polar expedition experience.

Nordenskiöld Lodge

Nordenskiöld Lodge

This luxurious wilderness accommodation around 100 km northeast of Longyearbyen, is located far inside the fjord, right by one of Svalbard’s largest glaciers, Nordenskiöldbreen. Picture yourself having breakfast to the sound of the glacier calving, gazing out of the window, where you spot a polar bear hunting a seal on the ice by the front of the glacier.
