Stay at Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen

The Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen is centrally located in Longyearbyen, yet close to the surrounding nature. Here you get to enjoy beautiful views, close proximity to the town center, and comfortable hotel facilities. Cuddle up in front of the fireplace in the lobby, whilst enjoying a hot drink after a long day of adventure. Or how about taking a relaxing bath in the hotel's jacuzzi?

Inside the hotel you will find Barentz Gastropub, where we invite you for a dinner. This is a favourite spot among locals as well as visitors. You can look forward to good food in a relaxed atmosphere, and a rich selection of both local and imported beverages.

Dark Season Blues

Blue light and a serene atmosphere make Longyearbyen the perfect setting for a cosy blues festival. The festival marks the start of the dark season, and has been held for twenty years. During four days you can experience local, Norwegian and international blues artists create varied music within the genre. Longyearbyen is a small town, which creates an extra intimate music experience. Read more about the Dark Season Blues festival here.
