From May to October, only boats can take you to our outposts in the Arctic wilderness. With a closed boat, we offer comfortable transportation and a fantastic opportunity to explore the area around Isfjorden easily. At our outposts, the hosts welcome you with open arms and a warm, tasty meal.

Our boats have room for 12 passengers and a crew of three, with comfortable seats and window space for everyone. The boat has a toilet and space for luggage below deck, and is safely operated by Basecamp’s experienced skippers.

Spend your days exploring the wilderness together with your Arctic nature guide, and enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by your host when you arrive back at the hotel. Just as the former radio station manager hosted and served the Norewgian polar hero, Fritjof Nansen, Isfjord Radio’s own chef will prepare and serve you a tasty menu with a touch of local ingredients and unique combinations of flavours. Isfjord Radio is the perfect place to be on the lookout for the “Big Five” of Svalbard. The more time you spend in the Arctic wilderness, the more likely you are to cross walruses, polar bears, the Arctic fox, the Svalbard grouse and the Svalbard reindeer off your bucket list.
