Hurtigruten Svalbard is totally dependent on good partners to offer a good product SAS is the veteran when it comes to flights to Svalbard, and operates today between Oslo, Tromsø and Longyearbyen.


In 2013 Norwegian started up again their flights to Svalbard, and we are very happy about this. We have a good cooperation with Norwegian, and they fly between Oslo and Longyearbyen.


The climate can be harsh on Svalbard, therefore it is quite natural for us to cooperate with Devold.

We equip our guides with Devold apparel, and also sell a range of suitable products at our accomodations.
