Longyearbyen is a small Arctic metropolis with many activities for enthusiasts of history, art, gastronomy and photography.

Don’t be fooled by the population. Longyearbyen has more attractions and opportunities than most larger cities.

You don’t even have to travel out of town for exciting tours and activities. You can experience this right in the heart of Longyearbyen all year round. Join a sightseeing tour and experience Longyearbyen in a nutshell. Visit the exciting Arctic museum, experience the gallery with art from Svalbard, see our little church and stop at the majestic aerial ropeway junction building and admire the view of the Hjortfjellet mountain on the other side of the fjord.

There are many exciting walking tours on offer. Do you enjoy photography? Join a photo safari to the nearby mountaintops and take photos you can share with your friends back home. Perhaps you would prefer a guided walk to learn about Longyearbyen’s unique history and the journey leading to the community we have here today? There are many options. What about combining sightseeing with a visit to one of the dog yards just outside Longyearbyen? Nothing warms you more than a hug from a husky!
