Spitsbergen Info

How to get to Spitzbergen

The journey to Spitsbergen is a bit different than most and therefore not very uncomplicated. Even if Spitsbergen is a Norwegian kingdom and Norway has signed the Schengen Agreement, a passport must be carried, because Spitsbergen is outside the Schengen Agreement. As a result, if you change trains in Oslo, you first have to pick up your luggage from the conveyor belt and walk through the checkpoint with it again. Spitsbergen a domestic flight? Caution! Special rules apply to Spitsbergen and the plane leaves from the international gate. This does not apply to planes flying via Tromsø to Longyearbyen. Once arrived in Longyearbyen, everything will be very clear. The airport is only small and just at the exit there are taxis and buses waiting to transfer you to the settlement about 4 kilometres away.

Radisson Blu Polar Hotel

This is the northernmost full-service hotel in the world. It was built in March 1995 and is located in the heart of Longyearbyen. The building was inspired by the American sponsor building of the Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, a part even brought to Spitsbergen. The service area with restaurant and the lobby were made by the Polish Krystjan Dolatowski, the Hiorthfjellet (a higher mountain in the surroundings of Longyearbyen) was the inspiration for the high ceilings. These give the restaurant an almost sacred atmosphere, with mountains that the majestic panoramic view allows to almost penetrate the room, accompanied by exciting Arctic dishes and a good selection of wines.

The hotel has 95 rooms, including 39 standard rooms, 30 superior rooms and a suite. All rooms are equipped with bathroom, TV and minibar. Now there are also the large and newly renovated Junior Suites! Here you live in the main building of the hotel and are in the centre of Longyearbyen. The rooms are decorated with pictures of Polar history and have their own charm. Junior suites have access to a bathrobe, slippers, coffee machines and minibars. Junior suites are located in an outbuilding about 30 meters from the hotel. Get a quote now.

Mary-Anns Polarriggen

It all began with a group of wooden barracks originally built for the builders and miners. When these barracks were offered for sale, Mary-Ann Dahle realized the potential and bought all the buildings. She gradually formed them into a place where visitors to Spitsbergen could experience an authentic and unique environment. Far away from the usual international hotel standards that already exist on the island. Their goal was and still is to give guests a taste of the real Spitsbergen with its trappers and miners who have left their mark on the island for decades. Since then a lot has happened and the place has developed into a small mirror of the history and atmosphere of Spitsbergen. The wooden houses now look completely different from the inside and outside, but they have not lost their authentic and unique character.  Jetzt Offerte einholen.>
