Let the Northern Lights ring in the holiday season and take the family on a magical Christmas experience in Longyearbyen.
Our favorite Christmas is warm days at our boutique hotel Funken Lodge. Hunting for the Northern Lights, either by dog sledding, snow cat or by foot. Enjoy a better Christmas meal in one of our restaurants with the city's best views - and just let the tranquility subside.
Christmas holidays at Longyearbyen Church on Christmas Eve are also a very special experience, which actually makes you feel like you are celebrating Christmas at the North Pole!
We decorate the Christmas tree together and put loads of traditional Christmas foods on the table.
