Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel is around 90km west of the town of Longyearbyen on the island of Spitsbergen in the Svalbard Archipelago. It is situated at the mouth of the Isfjorden and with no road access it is only accessible during the months between February and October.
No matter how you get to Isfjord Radio it is an adventure in itself, choose from an authentic dogsledding experience or more modern snowmobile in winter or a boat safari from Longyearbyen in the summer. A stay at this hotel works particularly well if combined with one of its sister properties of Basecamp Hotel, the Trapper's Station or Nordenskiöld Lodge.
Stays at Isfjord Radio can be for as long as five days and there are numerous activities to keep you entertained and to the explore the local area. At the lodge, it wouldn’t feel like a true Scandinavian experience without a sauna, this is a special experience and with every aspect of Isfjord Radio it has been customised to make the most of the stunning scenery. As such you will find a huge wall to wall window, so you won’t miss the fulmars flying past or possibly a seal or beluga in the fjord. For a true arctic experience test the frigid waters before warming up in the sauna.
Day trips from Isfjord include boat safaris to nearby glaciers and large breeding colonies of sea birds, a visit to the ancient soviet mining town of Barentsburg and nature hikes. You have a good chance of spotting some iconic arctic wildlife in this remote corner of Spitsbergen and because of the risk from polar bears it is necessary to move around outside with an armed guide.
