May we invite you to a different dining experience while visiting Longyearbyen? Join us at our Trapper’s Station in Bolterdalen, approx. 10 km east of city center.
The Russian mining settlement Pyramiden was abandoned in 1998, leaving the buildings and infrastructure intact. We pass close by the bird cliffs at Diabas before we reach Tempelfjorden and the cathedral-like mountain, Tempelfjellet. We head towards the Nordenskiöldbreen and whilst you enjoy the view, a warm barbequed lunch is served. We investigate the once so well groomed settlement. We follow the north side of the fjord and can reflect over the tragic winter in Svenskhuset at Kapp Thordsen.

At the end of the Longyear valley, there are two glaciers, Lars Breen and Longyear Breen.

Starry skies, moon light on the snow or the aurora lighting up the magical landscape. Join us for an atmospheric experience in the Polar Night!
In the period between November 14 and January 29 each year, a remarkable phenomenon occurs on Svalbard - The Polar Night. During these weeks the sun is at least 6 degrees under the horizon and therefore never shines on Spitsbergen. While the sun is hidden under the horizon, Longyearbyen becomes a magical place lit only by streetlamps, the northern lights and the moon which glitters in the snow. The atmosphere is completely unique, and as you soak in the mystical darkness you will know you are a long way from the beaten track. Don`t forget that during the Polar Night you have double the chance of seeing the Northern Lights!
The reindeer kick in the snow to find their fodder, and the foxes slink around in the dark. We will stop at Camp Barentz where lunch and warm drinks will be served. During the stop we may be able to see the impressive Northern Lights, which, due to the Polar Night, are often visable during the daytime hours.
