We have our own Christmas tradition that we share with our guests who visit Svalbard during this season. We decorate the Christmas tree together and put loads of traditional Christmas foods on the table.

Also, there is a good chance to bump into Santa! He lives here, after all, in one of the old coal mines. If you add some of our exciting activities as well, the winter holiday is complete! We recommend driving scooter, ride along with a snowcat tour or visiting our cozy wilderness evening.

See you under the northern lights and starry sky at 78 degrees North!

Leave the office and head out into the Arctic desert. A Christmas party on Svlbard is something different! We can tailor an intense weekend for you and your friends, either in our wilderness camp or at our boutique hotel Funken Lodge, with the city's best view.

Let us help you to organice your Christmas party with your friends or colleagues. Read more here.
