Isfjord Radio

A HOTEL AT THE END OF THE WORLD

After a gratifying day of gliding over the glaciers, mountains, and frozen fjords by dogsled or snowmobile, or by an open boat safari across the Arctic Ocean, you’re home.

This 1933 built, solitary outpost for radio operators doesn't look like much from the outside. As you enter though, you'll discover a different world. The contrast between the surrounding rough coastal landscape and the modern luxury hotel inside is a sight to behold. It is easy to forget where you are, but a quick dip in the Arctic Ocean will bring you back.

Just like the original residents of the outpost, decades ago, you'll gather around the table for dinner, a journey of tastes from the Arctic: smoked seal, whale, halibut with roe butter, and reindeer sausage. Most of the meat here is hunted by one of the three trappers left in Spitsbergen, then prepared in Isfjord Radio's modern kitchen by our top chefs to a standard that would please even the toughest food critic.

Later in the evening, as you lay on your bed surrounded by the Arctic silence, you realize that it has been one of the best days of your life.

One of the most unique hotels in the world due to it's incredible location on the end of the world.
