In addition to a private cabin, guests have access to an 18th-century farmhouse with an open kitchen and dining lounge. There is also an expedition library filled with books from Ousland’s private collection, as well as a hot tub, salt-water pool, and beach. Summer travel to the cabins includes the option of snorkeling, rock climbing, hiking, and sailing. Meanwhile, winter travelers can go kayaking, snowshoeing, explore the Resshola Cave, and watch the northern lights from a hot tub or their room.
As you might expect, Arctic travel does not come cheap. A four-day, three-night trip between April and September will cost nearly $2,000 for two people. That includes food, activities, lodging, and boat travel to the island. It, however, does not include your flight to Norway. That’s a stiff price, but one-of-a-kind experiences in remote regions are rarely cheap. (Fortunately, those affordable flights to Hawaii are finally arriving.)
