Christmas spirit in Longyearbyen

CHRISTMAS ON SVALBARD

There is something very special about the Christmas season and the atmosphere in Longyearbyen. The streets are lit up by beautiful Christmas lights and the northern lights dance in the sky both day and night. You can do your giftshopping tax-free and in the restaurants you can have a feast with delicious Christmas food. Longyearbyen can offer Christmas joy to everyone of all ages. Among other things, the children can visit Santa Claus in Mine 2 and deliver their wishlist in Santa's mailbox.

Are you dreaming of a different Christmas celebration?

Let the northern lights ring in the holiday season and take the family on a magical Christmas experience in Longyearbyen.

Our favourite Christmas involves hunting for the northern lights, by dog sledding, snowcat or by foot; enjoying cozy, warm evenings at our boutique hotel Funken Lodge; and dining with a delicious Christmas meal in one of our restaurants with the city's best views -- relax and enjoy the tranquility.

Holiday celebrations at Longyearbyen Church on Christmas Eve are also a very special experience, which gives you the feeling that you are celebrating Christmas at the North Pole!

OUR RECOMMONDATION

  • Authentic arctic living at Funken Lodge for 4 nights
  • A northern lights activity; northern lights evening in our wilderness camp or northern light hunting by snowcat.
