What to wear

Here you can read about the average temperatures in each month, and get some great tips about what clothes you should bring, dependent on when you are visiting our beautiful island.

Included in the winter package 2021:


Longyearbyen Panorama

Mar - May

3 hours

Take the whole family along on a lovely snowcat trip out from Longyearbyen. The snowcat is impossible to miss as it parks in front of your hotel to pick you up, but as soon as you have exchanged the town for the wilderness, the vehicle will seem very small, and the wilderness very big. The trip is not physically demanding, and is also suitable for children.


Wilderness evening

Mar - Sep

3 hours

Experience the magic of being in the wilderness at 78 degrees north! Our wilderness evening at Camp Barentz is a very special experience which you really should enjoy during your stay in Longyearbyen. As we leave town and drive into the Advent Valley your anticipation increases. The mountains on either side of the valley loom over us like giants, bathed in the midnight sun or glow of the short night. What awaits us at the end of the road?


Restaurant Nansen

Welcome to Restaurant Nansen! We’ve gathered the best tastes from the Arctic region, and combined them with Asian flavors. Asian fusion is one of the biggest food trends in the world, and you can look forward to culinary delights whilst enjoying the views of the surrounding fjords and mountains.


Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen

Breakfast included


Stay centrally in Longyearbyen, at the world's northernmost full-service hotel. Family friendly with great views to Hiorthfjellet and the Advent Fjord. During your stay you can enjoy delicious food in the Nansen Restaurant or an ice-cold beer in the Barentz Gastropub. The hotel reopened after major renovations in February, 2019.
