Spitsbergen activity holiday

This five day Spitsbergen activity holiday transports you to the Nordenskiöld glacier, 90 km from Longyearbyen. It’s a place that, in summer, can only be reached by boat; a place that’s well off any familiar route, where you can enjoy a unique Arctic break.

It accommodates just 10 guests at a time and sits right in front of the glacier, so there are fantastic views directly from the lodge porch. You can be sitting with a coffee and watch the glacier calving. The Lodge has no electricity or running water, and in this sense is a real expedition lodge, but it boasts plenty of modern ...
