A MODERN DAY LUXURIOUS TRAPPER'S CABIN
At the heart of Longyearbyen, the northernmost town in the world, lies the home of the modern-day arctic trappers. See the walls, covered with driftwood, sealskins, maps, pictures, and objects that illustrate the past and the present of life in the Arctic. This is the base camp for your expedition in Spitsbergen, decorated in authentic trapper's style down to the very last detail.
Prepare your mind and body for the wilderness by relaxing in the glass-roofed lounge looking up at the sky filled with Northern Lights, or losing yourself in the stories of the arctic explorers. Wander around the world's northernmost town, and dine next door at one of its best restaurants.
Once you've come this far, you have to go further. After a good night's sleep in one of the hotel's unique trapper's style rooms with a view of the mountains, you will definitely be ready for all Svalbard has to offer.

Basecamp Hotel has 16 rooms and can accommodate only 40 people thus retaining it's small boutique hotel feeling. Each room is individually decorated in traditional trapper style with driftwood, sealskin and slate. No two rooms are alike in fact! In all the rooms there are comfortable beds, private bathrooms with showers, and a wireless Internet connection. The double rooms at Basecamp Hotel come with either two single beds or one double bed. In triple rooms we have bunk beds, in real trapper’s style. Double beds are by request only. Two of the rooms in Basecamp Hotel are suites, with separate bedrooms, lounge, and bathroom. From all the rooms you have a beautiful view over the town or towards the mountains surrounding the valley of Longyeardalen.
There is a small bar in the reception area serving beers, wine and spirits, next door to Basecamp Hotel are a number of cosy restaurants and bars should you wish. Within the reception you will also find a 'curio' shop selling many interesting souvenirs, clothing and useful items.
Keeping true to the style of the trappers there are no televisions in the rooms, but you are more than welcome to borrow some books from the lobby, and just enjoy the arctic atmosphere in your room. If you’re still energized after the evening’s program you can climb up to our “Cognac loft”, where the is a largescreen television for the use of the guests.
