Stay at Funken Lodge

With modern comfort in historical surroundings, Funken Lodge offers a unique Svalbard experience. This luxurious boutique 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 intense days outdoors. All of the rooms have a contemporary design, and the friendly staff will ensure you an unforgettable stay.

Included in this package is a 5-course Easter dinner in Funktionærmessen Restaurant. The restaurant was originally the dining hall for the officials of the mining company, who were to have only the best. The combination of first-class cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere sets the stage for a unique culinary experience. Here you can enjoy delicious food and drink, while admiring the spectacular view over Longyearbyen.

Snowmobile tour to Elveneset

Included in the package is also a beautiful tour with snowmobile. This is a perfect tour also for you who have not ridden a snowmobile before. Even though we will remain relatively close to Longyearbyen, this is an incredible nature experience that takes you out into the wildest of Arctic winter landscapes. The tour has a total distance of approximately 70 kilometers, and the destination is Elveneset - a phenomenal view point over the Tempelfjord and the majestic mountain Tempelfjellet. The trip takes you through varied landscapes and several valleys with beautiful mountains on all sides. At the turning point at Elveneset we will enjoy a break with something hot to drink before heading back home. You can read more about the tour here.

Wilderness evening

The wilderness evening at Camp Barentz is a very special experience which we are happy to include in this package. Located approximately 15 km outside Longyearbyen, you are completely surrounded by nature. Here, we often see Svalbard reindeer, and even Svalbard ptarmigan and polar foxes if you are lucky.

You get picked up outside the hotel and driven out to the camp. As you arrive at the cosy wooden cabins you’ll be met by your host for the evening. The host will also be on watch throughout the evening, in case a polar bear should appear.

You will get served good drinks and a delicious homemade reindeer bidos, followed by campfire coffee and dessert. After the tasty dinner, it is time to learn more about the King of the Arctic – the polar bear. Comfortably seated around the open fire in the cabin, you get facts and stories about our most famous residents. After the presentation there will be time to take some photos of the majestic surrounding landscapes, before returning to civilization again. You can read more about the tour here.
