- Secondary Station
- Eighty Alaskan Huskies
Experience life as the trappers of the Arctic archipelago once did with a stay at the remote Trapper’s Station. Based approximately ten kilometres from the edge of Longyearbyen, this is a truly unique and hands-on place to lodge. Designed as a replica of an old trappers’ station and filled with artefacts, fur rugs, sealskins and oil lamps, the feel here is complete Arctic authenticity. The accommodation is made up of the trapper’s hut, and for a truly different experience, the secondary station and gamma. Reminiscent of a shelter used by trappers during their hunting trips, the secondary station provides four beds, while the gamma is styled as a wooden teepee hut where you can settle down into sleeping bags on reindeer skin. Let the everyday stresses of modern life trickle away as you get up close to this peaceful and relaxed wilderness on husky sled rides, before returning to the station for hearty four-course meals of Arctic food and flavours.
Explore the arctic tundra of the Svalbard Islands on exciting kayaking, trekking, snowmobiling and dog sledding tours. Witness astonishing wildlife from polar bears to whales, discover glaciers, fjords and ice caves and marvel at the beauty of the Northern Lights. Your travel designer will give you our top recommendations for icy adventures so that you can make the most of your time here.
From Longyearbyen port embark on the Polar Girl or MS Langoysund. The ship will venture into the Advent Fjord toward the blue Nordenskioldbreen front glacier. Later pass by beautiful glaciers to the Pyramiden settlement where miners used to extract coal, before it was abandoned at the end of the ’90s. During the journey you will see flocks of birds which fly here in the summer to lay their eggs and enjoy lunch on board. In the afternoon you will then return to Longyearbyen and continue to discover the amazing and remote landscapes and maybe even spot some whales.
You will be transferred to the Adventfjorden port where you will put on dry suits and begin an expedition on board a powerful and safe inflatable expedition boat to venture out on the blue glacier waters. This adventure takes you to the solitary and inaccessible Radio Station of Kapp Linne, where you will have lunch and go for a walk to learn the kind of relief and curiosities of this place “at the end of the world”. You will then return to Longyearbyen at the feet of the impressive “bird” mountains which rise from the Arctic Ocean.
