At the rim of the west coast
Isfjord Radio is the gateway to the true Arctic wilderness. Feel the sea breeze on your face and the wind in your hair. Observe the wildlife going about their daily life right outside the hotel. Enjoy the midnight sun and the autumn sunsets. Watch the northern lights dance across the sky right above the trollish mountain tops in September, February and March. Experience the beautiful light and the “blue hour” early in the winter season.

Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel is far more than a hotel. Experience the luxury of living in a remote location without compromising on comfort. Did you know that we had a polar bear check in to Isfjord Radio last summer?

The hotel is situated at the edge of Svalbard’s west coast, close to the bird reserve of Kapp Linné. Look out of your hotel room window and watch the reindeers graze on the tundra. Observe how the Arctic fox hunts for bird eggs and how the adult birds protect their fragile nests. On a rare occasion you might be the lucky enough to spot a polar bear or three lurking outside the hotel. 

Isfjord Radio is a boutique hotel with an inviting atmosphere and modern interiors. The colour palette incorporates Svalbard’s colours to the indoor interior. You will be surprised to discover the contrast between the inside and the rough exterior. The hotel is delicately furnished, with a quiet atmosphere and miles of uninterrupted views. Look across the vast Arctic ocean in one direction and be awed by the alpine mountain ranges rising straight out of the tundra in the opposite direction. Let the ocean draw your gaze towards Greenland. Here, you are at the mercy of the forces of nature.

Log off your everyday life and relax in the living room or library together with you fellow travellers. Bring out your inner polar explorer and go for an Arctic swim. In the crystal-clear waters, you might get accompanied by a curious seal and the Arctic fulmars. Warm up in the sauna and enjoy its idyllic location on the cliff. Enjoy a 5-course dinner. A dining experiences you would not expect this far into the wilderness. We introduce you to Arctic flavours and ingredients combined in unique ways by our creative chef. Get a good night sleep after an adventurous day or stay up and watch the norther lights dance until dawn.
