Let Your Arctic Story Begin

At the heart of Longyearbyen, the northernmost town in the world, lies the home of the modern-day arctic trappers.

See the walls, covered with driftwood, sealskins, maps, pictures, and objects that illustrate the past and the present of life in the Arctic. This is the base camp for your expedition in Spitsbergen, decorated in authentic trapper's style down to the very last detail.

Prepare your mind and body for the wilderness by relaxing in the glass-roofed lounge looking up at the sky filled with Northern Lights, or losing yourself in the stories of the arctic explorers. Wander around the world's northernmost town, and dine next door at one of its best restaurants.

Once you've come this far, you have to go further. After a good night's sleep in one of our unique trapper's style rooms with a view of the mountains, you're ready. Follow us to the arctic wilderness of Spitsbergen. You won't be the same person when we return to Basecamp Hotel. You'll be one of the few, those who know the secrets that only the fjords, glaciers, and mountains of the Arctic whisper.

 

 

Basecamp Hotel has 16 rooms and can accommodate more than 40 people. Each room is individually decorated in traditional trapper style with driftwood, sealskin and slate. No two rooms are alike.. In all our rooms there are comfortable beds, private bathrooms with showers, and a wireless Internet connection. Our double rooms come with either two single beds or one double bed. In triple rooms we have bunk beds, in real trapper’s style. Double beds are by request only. Two of the rooms in Basecamp Hotel are suites, with separate bedrooms, lounge, and bathroom. From all the rooms you have a beautiful view over the town, towards the mountains surrounding the valley of Longyeardalen.

Keeping true to the style of the trappers there are no televisions in the rooms, but you are more than welcome to borrow some books from the lobby, and just enjoy the arctic atmosphere in your room. If you’re still energized after the evening’s program you can climb up to our “Cognac loft”, where we have a largescreen television for the use of our guests.

Once you've come this far, you have to go further. After a good night's sleep at Basecamp Hotel, you're ready for new adventures. Follow us to one of our further destinations: Isfjord Radio, Nordenskiöld Lodge or the Ship in the Ice.  You won't be the same person when we return to Longyearbyen. You'll be one of the few, those who know the secrets that only the fjords, glaciers, and mountains of the Arctic whisper. See more info under each Basecamp.

For shorter stays there are several interesting day trips starting from the reception daily. We recommend that you book your trip beforehand, to make sure there is enough room for the whole party. See below for a list of day trips in summer & winter.
