What can we say! Exciting boat trip from longyearbyen to this wonderful unique hotel on the coast of Svalbard - a warm welcoming committee greeted us - rooms are cosy and the views from every window in this fantastic location are just amazing. The Chef is truly wonderful - catering for us being vegetarians was not a problem at all. Superb food and wine on both nights we were there. The staff are warm and friendly and cater for your every need...nothing too much trouble. We were incredibly lucky when we stayed there in that a male polar bear came very close to where we were staying - awesome!!! who needs television when you have nature from every window...beluga whales...Arctic bird life...Arctic fox...reindeer...a truly magical 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
