We are proud to present our newest destination
Nordenskiöld Lodge is the northernmost cabin for commercial trips on Spitsbergen.
The cabin is located far away from any civilization and offers excellent possibilities
for longer expeditions. With no running water or electricity Nordenskiöld is
a true expedition lodge in the middle of the arctic, but with modern comforts.
We use wood to heat up the cabin and get our drinking water from the melting glacier.
There are 5 bedrooms with fantastic arctic view, 10 comfortable beds, no running water,
indoor toilet and a traditional Finnish sauna. The cabin is modern and comfortable
with big windows giving away to the mighty glacier. Laying in
the glacier moraine the cabin is well hidden from the rest of the world!. This
is a place where you can enjoy the arctic silence in peace. You can enjoy your breakfast
while looking right over to the magnificent Nordenskiöld glacier or relax in
the sunny terrace with warm coffee and if you are lucky you can watch polar bear hunt
for seals on the sea ice.
Where is the
Nordenskiöld Lodge is situated in of the side fjords
of Isfjorden in Billefjorden. Nordenskiöld Lodge lies right next
to the shoreline in Adolfbukta, which is one of the inner bays in Billefjorden, right next
to the mighty glacier Nordenskiöld. Nordenskiöld glaicer is part of the
bigger glacier systems stretching all the way to the north cost of Spitsbergen, making
the northern parts of the high arctic archipelago very accessible from the Nordenskiöld
Lodge. The famous Atomfjella - a very interesting skiing destination for those
looking for true arctic adventure on skies - is pretty much "just around
the corner" from Nordenskiöld Lodge.
How to reach
During summer you can reach the cabin by boat from Longyearbyen.
It is about two hour's boat drive from the Longyearbyen harbor on good weather.
We use open polarcircle boats to cross the Isfjorden to Nordenskiöld Lodge. During
winter time you can drive to the lodge with dog sledges or snowmobiles. We have several
interesting tours for the winter that combine the ship in the ice and Nordenskiöld
under same expedition! But no matter which season you pick it is certain to be
an adventurous trip into the true high arctic!
you are looking for true arctic story with big glaciers, mighty mountains and rough
moraine, this is the place to come!
