Top Image: 3024

Situated on the outermost part of the Isfjord on the beautiful Nordenskiöld coast framed by majestic mountains and overlooking the open sea, you will discover Basecamp Isfjord radio. Until a few years ago, the radio station was an important connection for telecommunication between Svalbard and the rest of the world. The area surrounding the radio station has an exceptional animal life and a bird sanctuary where we find nesting birds right up to the station’s walls. In addition to all the different species of birds, you might also see reindeers, polar foxes and if you are lucky, it may be possible to spot the King of the Arctic – the polar bear! Our host will welcome the guests at the harbour and will give you a guiding of the station and the beautiful surroundings.  Warm drinks and cake will be served during the stay.
