Stay at the world's northernmost full service hotel

Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen is located in the heart of Longyearbyen. The hotel reopened after major renovations in February 2019, and is a perfect place to stay for both family, couples and friends. In the hotel lobby you can relax in the lounge in front of the fireplace, and enjoy a hot drink after a long day of adventure.

Afraid of missing out? You can register for a "northern lights call" at the reception. In case there is northern lights activity during the night, the reception team will notify you. We always do our best to make your Svalbard experience complete.

Included in this package offer are many culinary treats in the hotel's two restaurants. In Restaurant Nansen, the concept centers around Nordic Fusion, with a menu inspired by the Arctic region. You can look forward to a delightful culinary experience in an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere. Barentz Gastropub is also adjacent to the hotel, combining a good, relaxed atmosphere with light meals and a rich selection of local and imported drinks.

Northern lights evening at Camp Barentz

The Northern lights over Svalbard can be seen 24 hours a day during the polar night. Camp Barentz is perfectly located far away from all the light pollution, which offers the perfect conditions for experiencing Svalbard's magnificent nature and the northern lights. You will be picked up at the hotel by bus and driven out of town, towards the camp. As we arrive in front of the lovely wooden cabins, you will be greeted by your host for the evening.

Here you will be served something good to drink, delicious homemade reindeer stew, coffee and dessert. After dinner, it is time to learn a little more about the green magical lights on the sky. We gather around the fire, and the host will tell about the incredible phenomenon. If the conditions allow for it, we end the evening by experiencing the northern lights with our own eyes outside the cabin.

Northern Lights tour with snowcat

Northern lights hunting with a snowcat is a nice and comfortable way to get out into the wild Svalbard nature. The trip is not physically demanding, and suits all ages and fitness levels. The guide takes you out of the city, away from Longyearbyen's lights, into the magical polar night. You drive across the frozen Advent valley, and there will be several stops along the way to look for the northern lights. We recommend wearing warm winter clothes so you can enjoy the northern lights outside if it shows up on the sky.

Cancellation charges

A booking cannot be canceled and/or refunded. Names can be changed for a fee of NOK 300,- per ticket, up to 1 month before departure.
