Basecamp Trapper’s Hotel Spitsbergen

Basecamp Trapper’s Hotel is situated in the center of Longyearbyen, close to pubs, restaurants, bank and shopping centre. This is no doubt the roughest and most unique hotel at Spitsbergen. Furnished with slate, sealskin and drift wood interior, it gives an impression of entering into a hunters timber lodge rather than a hotel. No rooms are alike, however the standard is high and the rooms have very comfortable beds, all bathrooms have heated floors and most of the rooms are spacious.

Breakfast is served at the wooden table in the Travelers’ Club. At the “Cognac loft” you can enjoy the arctic light trough 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 Trapper’s Hotel gives you the opportunity to relieve stress, forget the modern society and concentrate on your emotions within. You can leave the suites and ties at home!

Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.

Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
