Isfjord Radio station holiday in Spitsbergen

From April to August, the sun never sets in Svalbard. On the windswept grounds of Kapp Linne, you can observe how the sun patrols the sky in almost uniform circles during summer. Enjoy the view from the Arctic Isfjord Radio sauna and go for a swim under the midnight sun. The magnificent view is seen by more fulmars than human beings, and you will be one of the lucky few experiencing the wildlife at Isfjord Radio on this particular day.Read more >

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. Your base is the Nordenskiöld Lodge, hidden beneath the Nordenskiöld glacier on the shores of an icy fjord. 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.
