Whether you arrive with Hurtigruten or independently, you will spend your first night here in Tromsø. Depending on your arrival time, we encourage you to explore the Arctic Capital before we head further north the next day.
Included in your Svalbard Experience, you’ll see all the main attractions of Longyearbyen, enjoy a delicious meal with incredible views, and learn about the history of Svalbard. You can also participate in a great selection of exciting optional excursions, listed below. Make sure you pre-book these before you arrive in Svalbard!
Your bus transfer will take you to the airport for your flight to Svalbard. Upon arrival in Longyearbyen, we will bring you to your hotel. To give you the best impressions of this Arctic city, we’ve booked you on a fantastic guided sightseeing tour. The guide will tell you all about the rich history of Longyearbyen and what it has to offer. You’ll see the vast desert of Arctic tundra and have the chance to take plenty of photos, as we make several stops along the way.
After the grand tour, you are welcome to do some further exploring on your own or join one of your pre-booked excursions.
Dinner with a view
Spend the day exploring by yourself before we meet up for dinner later in the evening. We have booked a great food experience for you this evening at Funktionærmessen. This restaurant once hosted mining company officials, where they enjoyed meals overlooking stunning panoramic views of Longyearbyen, the glacier and Hjortfjellet. Both then and now, the menu was inspired by French cuisine.
On the fourth day of this Arctic adventure, you’ll fly home from Svalbard, with a bag full of memories.
