Basecamp Hotel

The most spectacular hotel on Svalbard

You will find Basecamp Spitsbergen in central Longyearbyen.

We can guarantee the most spectacular hotel on Svalbard, with interiors of drift wood, planks from the Russian settlement in Barentsburg, slate, corrugated iron, and sealskins. You get the feeling of wandering in a trapperâs cabin rather than a hotel. The standard is high, and we have comfortable beds and warm bathrooms in all our rooms.

Breakfast is served at the timber long table in the Travellers Club. You could spend the night on the Cognac Loft-Room watching the magnificent Svalbard light through the glass ceiling. In surroundings that ooze of proud trapping traditions, you will get a powerful and authentic experience and fantastic stories to tell family or friends stranded at home.

Basecamp Spitsbergen is a bed and breakfast so that you are free to enjoy the other meals of the day in the many quality restaurants and coffeehouses in the city. Here you will find everything from coffeehouses with Italian dishes to gourmet meals at Huset. You will find that the pub, which is in the same building and with the same atmosphere as the hotel, is a good place to eat.


The hotel is located in the centre of Longyearbyen within walking distance to the treats of the city. The bus from the airport stops just outside the hotel and corresponds with all arrivals and departures from the airport.
