What to do on Svalbard
During winter time, you should not miss a Northern Lights safari, and throughout the summer many join our bpat safaris or kayak expeditions on the Isfjord. If you're also a foodie, we definitely have something for you, and both Huset and Funktionaermessen Restaurant are renown for their gourmet artistry.
IN COOPERATION WITH HURTIGRUTEN SVALBARD, WE OFFER MANY GREAT EXPERIENCES.
No matter what activity you choose, you can find something for every taste here on Svalbard. Svalbard is one of the world's largest untouched wilderness areas and it is precisely this vast area of raw and untamed nature that many find so alluring. The chance to get out of Longyearbyen and explore this arctic wilderness is the main motivation for many to visit the Svalbard archipelago. Svalbard offers a wide range of activities and many different transport options – both motorized and non-motorised. One thing to remember is that most nature-based experiences are run by local guides who prioritize safety, environmental awareness and local knowledge.
ATTRACTIONS, CULTURAL EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
Svalbard has much more to offer than fantastic nature. In Longyearbyen you will find a wide selection of attractions, cultural events, festivals and activities all year round. There are also many bars and restaurants where people from all over the world (residents and visitors) gather to enjoy good food and drink. Longyearbyen is full of shops that sell a wide range of goods at tax-free prices. Many are surprised to discover how much is on offer in such a small place – so close to the North Pole! Regardless of whether you are interested in multi-day expeditions or culture, food and drink, Svalbard has something for every taste.
