Have You Heard the Arctic Silence?

On the moraine shore of the icy fjord, at the edge of the blue glacier, stands our hidden expedition lodge.

Before you even leave Longyearbyen, you are already almost as remote as it gets. Nordenskiöld Lodge, however, takes the isolation from the modern world to another level. It's the place you have to visit if you want to see the farthest, reach the truest north. It’s the farthest you can reach by motorized vehicle in Spitsbergen, and the base for expeditions to the blue glacier.

Just like the explorers decades ago, you’ll spend days climbing on the glacier and skiing around the fjord and snowy valleys.  Warm yourself up in the sauna after a long day’s exploring. As the Arctic night surrounds the pine cabin you can lay your head on the soft pillow, wrap yourself in the warm blankets, and bask in the Arctic silence.

When you lift your head in the morning, the first thing you will see is the blissful view of the blue glacier. What should we do today? How about a visit to the ghost town of Pyramiden, just a few miles away?

Nordenskiöld 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.

Nordenskiöld 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.

During 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!
