The hotel is located on a hill in Longyearbyen, with magnificent views over town and the two glaciers Larsbreen and Longyearbreen. The cosy atmosphere creates a tranquil base to relax in after an intense day outdoors. You can find a snug spot in front of the open fire, and gain new inspiration from our library filled with polar literature. Enjoy a cocktail from Funken Bar and let your thoughts wander to polar adventures and expeditions. All of the rooms have a contemporary design, and our friendly staff will ensure you a perfect stay.

Here you have a fantastic view over Longyearbyen, while enjoying delicious food and drinks. The highly knowledgable staff will help you find the perfect drink that compliments your food.

Funken Lodge also has its own Champagne cellar and a newly refurbished wine cellar. Here you can book private tastings - a unique and exclusive experience!

Snowcat tour to an ice cave

A hidden, frozen world appears when you descend into the ice cave. This is something that must be experienced when on Svalbard. A snowcat is a comfortable vehicle for getting out into the Arctic wilderness. The trip goes up onto the Longyear glacier, located right behind Longyearbyen. It is not a long drive, but this beautiful tour gives you fantastic a view over town and the majestic mountain Hiorthfjellet on the other side of the fjord.

The entrance to the ice cave is difficult to find for anyone other than the guide, but in the middle of all the white there is a small opening. A staircase leads down to the magical world of ice and snow. You will get equipped with powerful headlights, and in a row you light up the narrow hallway in front of you. The ice cave changes from year to year, but usually one can walk a few hundred meters into the cave before the path stops (or it becomes too difficult to force). In several places, the corridor opens up like a large cathedral of snow and ice, which is incredibly fascinating.
