Stay at Radisson Blu Polar Hotel

Radisson Blu Polar Hotel is located in the heart of Longyearbyen, yet close to the surrounding nature. The hotel reopened after a major renovation in February 2019, and is the perfect place to stay for both families, couples and friends.

Relax in the lobby and lounge, in front of the fireplace, whilst enjoying a hot drink after a long day of adventure. Explore the two hotel restaurants. In Restaurant Nansen, a lovely menu awaits, inspired by Nordic flavours. Here you will find Arctic fish, high-quality meat cuts, as well as vegetarian alternatives. The Barentz Gastropub is also adjacent to the hotel, combining a good, relaxed atmosphere with light meals and a rich selection of both local and imported drinks.

Isfjord safari - a taste of Svalbard

Included in this package is a tour with one of our open, steady speedboats. This tour takes you out on Isfjorden, on a journey through fascinating landscapes and all its history. Your guide will decide the exact route according to the weather conditions, but regardless of which, you will come back with many great impressions.

During summer, the areas around the fjord are bursting with birds that have migrated from all corners of the world. We will experience this vivid bird life either at the bird cliff Diabasodden or Fuglefjellet. With some luck, you may also spot some whales along the way. On this 3 hour long trip you get to see and learn a lot about Svalbard.

Dog Sledding On Wheels

Most people associate dog sledding with winter, snow, and freezing temperatures – but the dogs need exercise during the summer months as well. A dog sledding tour on wheels is therefore the perfect summer activity for both two- and four legged friends!

Your guide will pick you up at the hotel and take you out to the dog yard, where the dogs eagerly are waiting for your arrival. Here you get equipped with a warm overall, boots and gloves, before you help harnessing the dogs.

The barking and howling may seem somewhat chaotic, but it does not take long until everything changes; As the dogs start running, they become completely silent. Fully focused on their task at hand, they pull the cart, and you can focus on enjoying the fantastic landscape and wildlife around you.

There will be several stops along the way to give the dogs water, and maybe snap a picture or two. The colours of the summer landscape are incredibly beautiful, where the vegetation stands in beautiful contrast to the mountains and the sky. Eventually we turn the carts around, and drive back to the dog yard. Here you get some time to relax with a hot drink – and maybe there are some cute puppies to cuddle with as well!

Additional activities

Are you tempted by more adventures? The selection of summer activities is extensive, and you can easily book them directly here on our website. Please note: Additional activities are not included in the package price.

For the summer of 2022, we can highly recommend a trip with our brand new hybrid boat Kvitbjørn. Near glaciers, wildlife or settlements, it runs silently on electric propulsion. This allows both wildlife and passengers to relax and enjoy the quiet nature. At higher speeds, hybrid propulsion is used; Both the electric motor and the diesel engine are used at the same time. This allows us to get up to speed whilst reducing the diesel consumption.
