Deep in the heart of the island of Spitsbergen in the glacial moraine of Nordenskiöld glacier is the world’s northernmost commercial cabin. With just five rooms and no running water or electricity it is a place to come to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and experience some of nature’s most impressive forces and the landscapes which they have forged. Why not also visit the sister properties of Basecamp Hotel, Isfjord Radio and the Trapper's Station.
The lodge is open between Mar and May and July and September each year and is only accessible by boat or snowmobile, depending on the time of year that you visit.
Spend your days in the wood-fired sauna, paddling in a kayak to the front of the glacier and of course getting acquainted with the glacier itself, on foot. Expert guides and equipment are on hand to introduce you to the techniques required for hiking across this glacier which stretches all the way to the north coast of Spitsbergen.
The abandoned Russian mining town of Pyramiden is also on the doorstep and easy to visit from the lodge, which was left in 1998 and everything exists as it was then. Enjoy a tour of the town and it’s crumbling buildings and even the world’s northernmost swimming pool.
