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.

Ice cave tour with snowcat

Visiting an ice cave is a must-do when on Svalbard. This package includes a fun tour to the cave inside one of the nearby glaciers. You will get picked up with a snowcat; 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. Then, a hidden, frozen world of ice and snow appears when you descend into the cave. You will get equipped with powerful headlights, that allows you to 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. In several places, the corridor opens up like a large cathedral of snow and ice, which is incredibly fascinating. 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. Read more about the tour here.
