Superb place to rest your bones after being into the wild. A place which reminds a SF movie scene but with the best retro feeling and atmosphere of hunters cabin inside the walls. The management is doing great job in maintaining and further developing the interior..it is a true paradise and sanctuary keeping safe the arriving adventurers.
Food treats are unimaginable when you realize where you are getting and enjoying those dishes.
Prices are high..but guys...you are 'at the the of the World'!!!
Must try place...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated about 90 km west from Longyearbyen you can find our hotel Isfjord Radio. After a gratifying day of gliding over the glaciers, mountains, and frozen fjords by dogsled or snowmobile, or by an open boat safari across the Arctic Ocean, you’re home. This 1933 built solitude outpost for radio operators doesn’t look like much from the outside. As you enter, though, you’ll discover a different world. The contrast between the surrounding rough coastal landscape and the modern luxury hotel inside is a sight to behold. It is easy to forget where you are, but a quick dip in the Arctic Ocean will bring you back. Later in the evening, as you lay on your bed surrounded by the Arctic silence, you realize that it has been one of the best days of your life. Isfjord Radio is part of Basecamp Explorer Spitsbergen, which operates day trips and expeditions from Basecamp Hotel and Trapper’s Station to Nordenskiold Lodge and Isfjord Radio. ... more less
