An Artic Fantastic In the wildernes. A great location away from anything but a wild nature. A crew that can compeat with anyone in any top hotel, service better than most, and with a food that is outstanding to describe it
modestly. A well designed interior with a combination of modern and rustic furniture, gives you a homely feeling. Spotlessly clean all over. How do they mannage this standard when all the provisions has to be shipped by boat or snowmobile, is just amasing. Just one complaint, they didn't have any decent vodka, hopefully that will be changed. Just remember you gun when wenturing outdoors.
- 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
