Basecamp Explorer Spitsbergen

At Basecamp Explorer we offer a wide range of day trips, overnight trips and expeditions to our outposts far into the Arctic wilderness. Our passion is to arrange adventurous Svalbard experiences for our guests.

Accommodation

Each basecamp in Svalbard has its own genuine style and design. From a simple and authentic standard at Basecamp Trapper’s Station, a comfortable cottage experience at Nordenskiold Lodge, to a modern and inviting hotel standard at Isfjord Radio and Basecamp Hotel in Longyearbyen.
We are happy to invite you in for a homemade meal at all our outposts. In collaboration with local hunters, our chefs and hosts offer Arctic tastings such as grouse, reindeer or self-harvested mushrooms and Arctic char.

Activities

Our isolated and unique basecamps will be the perfect starting point for experiencing the wild and pristine nature of Svalbard. Together with our experienced Arctic nature guides, you can choose among a variety of unique and unforgettable activities in Svalbard.
In wintertime, we drive snowmobiles, mush teams of dogs or go skiing. In summertime, we travel by boat, kayak or use our feet and explore by foot. The feeling of the midnight sun warming your face, the northern lights dancing over your head, or traveling through the blue hour, brings out an exclusive sense of freedom only found in the Arctic wilderness.

Trip planner

Throughout the year, we organize Arctic trips and expeditions for individual travellers, and create tailor-made itineraries for companies, groups and private events.
Regardless of which activity you choose, you will actively participate in the activity, and together with your group and tour guide, you will reach your final destination.

Responsible tourism

Together with our Basecamp Explorer Kenya, we are one of the most rewarded tourism operators within sustainable tourism. In Svalbard, each guest pays a CO2 and environmental investment that is exclusively donated to help further development of nature and community projects at our safari camps in Masai Mara. This involves projects such as education for local youth, tree planting to preserve the ecosystem, purification of drinking water, recycling of waste and conservation of the Mara Naboisho Wildlife Conservancy nature reserve.
