We stayed in the lodge for the Great Ice Bear Adventure in November 2013 and had a wonderful time. The lodge has good facilities, the food is amazing. The guides (and guards) did a great job walking with us through the snow and ice-covered tundra spotting bears and other arctic wildlife. They also shared stories and pictures in the evenings. Everyone was friendly, helpful and made us feel at home in a very exotic location.
The trip included dog sledging (which was nice, but was only a 15 min ride), and a buggy tour (which was great, but the wildlife spotting at the lodge was more successfull and exciting).
You will have to spend a bit of money, you will be cold at times, your eyes will hurt from staring at bears in the arctic wind and you will be tired from staying up for northern lights - but for us it was worth it all. We were very sorry to leave and can truely recommend this holiday.
