Our rating: Superior | Property style: Hotel
Built using reclaimed driftwood, the rustic and charming Basecamp Hotel (also known as Trappers Lodge) is furnished throughout with Arctic bric-a-brac and traditional furnishings. A warm and welcoming retreat, all of its 16 rooms come with private bathrooms and an eclectic array of sealskins, slates and driftwood interiors. In keeping with its rustic charm, there are no TVs in the lodge, but an extensive library provides a wealth of reading material, whilst the panoramic windows of the Cognac Lounge present the perfect setting in which to enjoy the splendid displays of the Northern Lights. Complimentary tea, coffee and snacks are also available throughout the day.
