Stay at our boutique hotel, Funken Lodge

With modern comfort in historical surroundings, Funken Lodge offers a unique Svalbard experience. The hotel is located on a hill in Longyearbyen, with magnificent views over town and the two glaciers Larsbreen and Longyearbreen. The cosy atmosphere creates a tranquil base to relax in after an intense day outdoors. You can find a snug spot in front of the open fire, and gain new inspiration from our library filled with polar literature. Enjoy a cocktail from Funken Bar and let your thoughts wander to polar adventures and expeditions. All of the rooms have a contemporary design, and our friendly staff will ensure you a perfect stay.

Northern Lights

The polar night sweeps over Svalbard from 11 November, which gives the town of Longyearbyen an incredibly cozy atmosphere during the pre-Christmas period. The town is decorated with Christmas lights, and even though it is dark around the clock, the moonlight brightens up the sky. In addition, you will have the opportunity to see the northern lights - also in the middle of the day! Svalbard is the only inhabited place in the world where it is possible to experience this.

Tax-Free Shopping

Did you know that Svalbard is a duty free zone? Here you get everything you buy at tax-free prices. In other words, Svalbard is the perfect place to buy Christmas gifts! In Longyearbyen's many sports shops you can make good deals on outdoor clothing and equipment. There is also an extensive selection of souvenirs, jewelry, and assorted products from exclusive Scandinavian brands. Included in this package is a voucher that gives you a NOK 200 discount if you shop for more than NOK 1,000 at the Longyear78 Outdoor & Expeditions store.


At Funken Lodge we make sure that you have a heavenly stay on Svalbard. The kitchen in Funktionærmessen Restaurant prepares delicious food with only high-quality ingredients. You can look forward to an elegant 4-course dinner in an elegant atmosphere. This is also where your breakfast will be served. From the extensive buffet you can choose between a broad variety of fresh ingredients. It is also possible to have an omelette specially made according to your wishes.

Included in this package is also an exclusive beer tasting at the world's northernmost brewery, Svalbard Bryggeri. You get to walk through the brewery and hear the wonderful story of how two locals, one miner and his wife came up with the wild idea. You will hear about the patience, courage, love and madness needed to build a brewery near the North Pole. Look forward to tasting good quality beer and getting to know the process behind it.
