Basecamp Spitsbergen - Review
Ages ago, brave trappers lived in Svalbard leading a rough life based on hunting and survival. The Trapper’s Station has tried to replicate these very hunting communities. It has attempted to create an ambience which, when the Arctic winds blow, will bring out the trapper within.
At this little hotel, you get to experience the life of a trapper, from how it was to live off hunting to what a trapper ate and how he slept. Trapper’s station is located 10Kms from Longyearbyen in Bolterdalen. The buildings are made to look like the hunting communities and books, images, artefacts and hunting equipments deck the place. Huge, gorgeous and absolutely adorable Alaskan huskies greet you at the door of the station. The station is home to 80 such huskies which have been trained for mushing.
The station offers truly distinctive arctic trapper’s dinner. This place can be best enjoyed if travelling with a group. A wooden tepee type hut can be rented where in you can sleep on cozy reindeer skin around a warm, open fire. Wilderness has its own allure. While it is difficult to actually survive wilderness, the Trapper’s station comes pretty close to giving a realistic experience.

Basecamp Spitsbergen, Longyearbyen Reviews
Great company for activities and guides. Utne and Peter were great when we were on a photoshoot from the UK. Very knowledgable and got stuck in with the filming!
One of my best experiences in my life. The base camp is an extremely cozy place from where you can participate many different tours organized by the Base Camp team. Absolutely recommendable.
Excellent hotel. Good service.
They organized our entire schedule and it was fantastic, the guides were great and the hotel is cozy! Definitely a svalbard experience!
Takes you into a world of trappers and explorers, every little or big detail is thoughtful. The bed rooms are cosy, and everything you need is there. I keep discovering new interesting features all the time. The bar by the reception serves nice drinks and snacks. This is a great place to hang at.
