Lodge is situated on one of the side fjords of Isfjorden, in Billefjorden. The
lodge is next to the shoreline in Adolfbukta, one of the inner bays in
Billefjorden, right next to the mighty glacier of Nordenskiöld. The Nordenskiöld
glacier is part of the larger glacier
system stretching all the way to the north coast of Spitsbergen, making the
northern parts of the high Arctic Archipelago very accessible from the
Nordenskiöld Lodge. This is as far as you can go on motorized vehicles - from
here on it's either skis or dog sled if you want to explore further.
Lodge is the northernmost commercial cabin in the world. With no running water
or electricity, Nordenskiöld is a true expedition lodge in the middle of the Arctic.
We use wood to heat the cabin, and get our drinking water from the melting
glacier. There are 5 bedrooms with fantastic Arctic views, 10 comfortable beds,
indoor toilet, and a traditional wood sauna.
summer, you can reach the cabin by boat from Longyearbyen harbor, a two hour
boat ride in good weather. We use open polar circle boats to cross the
Isfjorden to Nordenskiöld Lodge. During wintertime you can reach the lodge by dog
sled or snowmobile. But no matter which season you choose to visit, one thing is certain: you are
in for an adventurous trip into the true High Arctic!
