Wine Tasting

If you are into wines, the wine cellar at Funken Lodge is a must-visit when in Longyearbyen. Here you will find an extensive vintage collection from producers around the world. Explore these hidden treasures on a private wine tasting.

Exclusive Wine Tasting

The wine cellar at Funken Lodge is not only a paradise for the wine enthusiast, but also a historically interesting location. Back in the days, the hotel building was used for housing of the administrative staff of the coal mining company SNSK (Store Norske Spitsbergen Kullkompani). The basement was full of facilities, such as laundry rooms, sauna – and the corridor was used as an indoor shooting range! There was also a wine cellar, with many rare vintages that were served only on special occasions.

Today, the wine cellar is refurbished, but still stores an extensive vintage collection of bottles from around the world. You will find particularly interesting bottles from famous Bordeaux vineyards. Now you have the possibility to book an exclusive, private wine tasting with a highly knowledgeable sommelier. Together with the sommerlier, you will tailor the tasting according to your preferences and interest. You will get to try 5 different wines, supplemented with 5 delicious canapés.

Welcome to a unique wine tasting in the high Arctic!
