Nordenskiold Lodge, Svalbard


On the moraine shore of the icy fjord, at the edge of the blue glacier, stands this hidden expedition lodge.

Nordenskiöld Lodge is situated on one of the side fjords of Isfjorden, in Billefjorden. The lodge is next to the shoreline in Adolfbukta, one of the inner bays in Billefjorden, right next to the mighty glacier of Nordenskiöld. The Nordenskiöld glacier is part of the larger glacier system stretching all the way to the north coast of Spitsbergen, making the northern parts of the high Arctic Archipelago very accessible from the Nordenskiöld Lodge. This is as far as you can go on motorized vehicles – from here on it’s either skis or dog sled if you want to explore further.

Nordenskiöld Lodge is the northernmost commercial cabin in the world. With no running water or electricity, Nordenskiöld is a true expedition lodge in the middle of the Arctic. We use wood to heat the cabin, and get our drinking water from the melting glacier.

During wintertime you can reach the lodge by dog sled or snowmobile and in the summer you can reach the cabin by boat from Longyearbyen harbor, a two hour boat ride in good weather. But no matter which season you choose to visit, one thing is certain: you are in for an adventurous trip into the true High Arctic!
