Sunsets, twilight and northern lights

The autumn on Svalbard offers beautiful colours and fantastic light shows. As the sun is descending further and further down the horizon towards the polar night, October is the month to enjoy the twilight. The sky has a special dark blue colour, and in the evenings you can enjoy long sunsets. When the sun has set, you might even be lucky to experience the magical northern lights. This is a rather unique period when you can experience both sunsets, blue light and the northern lights.

It is still boating season, and we also recommend hiking up the city's nearby mountains. This is a time to enjoy the nature and the beautiful landscapes.

Stay at Funken Lodge

With modern comforts in historical surroundings, Funken lodge offers a unique Svalbard experience. The cosy atmosphere provides a tranquil base to relax in after an eventful day outdoors. You can find a snug spot in front of the fire, and gain new inspiration from our library filled with Polar literature. Or perhaps a cocktail from Funken Bar will give you a chance to reflect on polar adventures and expeditions? All of the rooms are handsomely furnished, and our friendly staff will ensure a perfect stay.

Funken Lodge also houses its own Champagne and a newly refurbished wine cellar. Here you can order private tastings and get an exclusive experience.

Enjoy a delicious 6 course dinner in Funktionærmessen Restaurant

With focus on exceptional ingredients and exemplary service, the team at Funktionærmessen Restaurant welcomes you to a culinary experience. Here you will be served a lovely 6-course menu with high quality produce. The restaurant's wine list is impressive and the sommelier will help you find the perfect bottle for your preferences and meal. This is an experience!

Wildlife and glacier cruise

Included in this package is also a day trip with the hybrid-electric catamaran MS Bard. Its modern and spacious design gives you the feeling of being at one with nature. This tour truly allows you to experience the Arctic silence.

The route takes you through magnificent landscapes, to Billefjorden and the wonderful glacier front of Nordenskiöldbreen. The tundra has a wonderful colour palette throughout the summer, with contrasting shades of green and yellow. Once in front of the fantastic glacier front, we take plenty of time to enjoy the view. With a bit of luck, wildlife also appears along the way, such as reindeer, seals, and – with extra luck – a polar bear. We sail past cultural monuments and historical places, and our guides ensure that you will have an unforgettable experience for all senses. Read more about the tour here.
