Come and stay at our boutique hotel, Funken Lodge! The hotel reopened earlier this year, and during your stay it is impossible not to get acquainted with the hotel's fascinating history. In the lobby you can enjoy the fireplace and a large selection of books, and the atmosphere that will make you lower your shoulders after an eventful day outdoor. Funken Lodge combines Arctic luxury and adventure, and is a home away from home. Welcome!
On the second floor at Funken Lodge you will find Funktionærmessen Restaurant. Inspired by an international cuisine and using only the best ingredients, the restaurant offers a dining experience like no other in Longyearbyen. The menu is based on a "sharing" concept, and consists of generous portions that can be split between friends.
When the polar summer begins on the 17th of May, the midnight sun has already illuminated the island for a month. 24 hours of daylight allows for the island's sights to be explored and experienced day and night. There is no limit to when you can go exploring, and it's easy become jetlagged – even if you haven’t crossed a time zone. At the same time, this offers unprecedented opportunities for a jam-packed holiday!
The summer in the Arctic is short and hectic, and there is a booming animal- and birdlife on the archipelago. Although the number of nesting birds does not exceed 30, birdlife is rich. They come in large flocks to nest and eat of the vast deposits of nutritious organisms in the ocean during the summer months.
The wildlife is no less impressive. Whales, seals and walrusses enter the fjords of Svalbard to feast of the food opportunities in the ocean. And on land you can see the chubby Svalbard reindeer, polar fox, polar grouse and - if you are lucky - polar bear!
