Where to stay

Some of the wonderful places to stay that we frequently recommended.

Basecamp Svea £££££

  • Spitsbergen
  • Boutique

Svea Basecamp is a mining town and dates back to the early twentieth century. It has opened its doors to tourism, providing food and lodging for those passing on their Arctic adventure. Svea is the world’s most northern operative mining town dating back to the early twentieth century. Rooms are located in the barracks and meals are served in the canteen. Guests will live as the workers do, with an opportunity to learn about the life of a miner in such a remote region of the Arctic.

Nordenskiold Lodge £££££

  • Spitsbergen

Located on the shores of Isfjorden, at the edge of the blue glacier, is Nordenskiold Lodge – a five-bedroom true expedition lodge with no running water or electricity. There is a traditional sauna to enjoy after a long cold day on the ice. During the summer months, it is possible to reach the cabin on foot or by boat (two hours to Longyearbyen harbour). In winter it is only accessible by sled or snowmobile. Activities from the lodge include climbing the glacier, skiing, and days exploring by dog-sled, visiting abandoned mining towns such as the ghost town of Pyramiden just a few miles away.

Basecamp Hotel £££££

  • Spitsbergen

Basecamp Hotel is set in the middle of Longyearbyen and is furnished with driftwood from a Russian settlement to give the feeling of a Spitsbergen hunter’s cottage. Breakfast is served around a long table in The Travellers Club, while the Cognac Attic, with its glass ceiling, is flooded with arctic light. The lodge is bed and breakfast only, but the town is home to a selection of restaurants ranging from coffee houses serving Italian dishes to gourmet meals at a Huseta.
