Although only home to around 2,400 permanent residents the town’s population swells each year, particularly during the summer season from June-September as cruise ships come and go on their routes to explore Svalbard.
Basecamp Hotel is open throughout the year, so it is the perfect overnight before or after a cruise or perhaps for a visit of a few days or longer out of peak season to enjoy the many activities on the island.
It has 16 rooms of various formats to suit all travellers, from a single room right up to a suite that sleeps four and is complete with its own lounge.
The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of town, so it is easy to visit one of the many fine restaurants or perhaps a visit to the worlds northernmost brewery. Many activities are on offer, including trips to Basecamp Hotel’s more remote sister properties of the Trapper's Station, Isfjord Radio or Nordenskiöld Lodge or depending on the season a chance to see the northern lights, snow mobile adventures, dog sledding/ buggying, hikes, boat safaris and more.
Why not add a night on at Basecamp Hotel before or after one of the fantastic cruises, that we offer, giving you more time either to settle in and acclimatize before your voyage or to explore the mainland of Spitsbergen.
