We are proud to present our newest destination on Svalbard!
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 big bedrooms with fantastic arctic view, 11 comfortable beds, 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 any by passer. 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 watch polar bear hunt for seals on the sea ice.
Where is the Expedition Lodge?
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 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 the Lodge?
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 arctic!
If you are looking for true arctic story with big glaciers, mighty mountains and rough moraine, this is the place to come!
