About the Trapper's Hotel
Trapper’s Hotel is situated right at
the heart of Longyearbyen, among restaurants, pubs, shops and bank. It is absolutely
Longyearbyen’s most amazing hotel; decorated in traditional trapper’s
style with driftwood, sealskins, pictures and objects that illustrate the past and
current trappers’ life in the Arctic. Despite its rusticity, Trappers Hotel
offers high quality accommodation with unique style!
Trapper’s Hotel has 16 rooms and can
accommodate more than 40 people. Each room has its individual decorations in traditional
trapper style with driftwood, sealskin and slate. There are no two rooms like each
other. In all our rooms there are comfortable beds, private bathrooms with shower
and wireless internet connections. In double rooms we have either two single beds
or one double bed. In triple rooms we have bunk beds in real trapper’s style.
Double beds are on request only. Two of the rooms in Trappers Hotel are suites, with
separate bedrooms, lounge and bathroom. From all the rooms you have lovely view over
the town and towards the mountains surrounding the valley of Longyeardalen.
Keeping true to the Trappers Style, there are
no televisions in the rooms, but you are more than welcome to borrow some arctic books
from the lobby and just enjoy the arctic atmosphere in your room. If you still yearn
after evening programs you can climb up to our “Cognac loft” where we
have big screen television for our guest to use.
In the arctic you have a good chance to see beautiful northern lights
dancing across the sky. Svalbard is one of the few places on earth where you can see
the northern lights also during day time. Our receptionists are more than happy to
inform you whenever there are northern lights on display. Just let them know that
you are eager to see the nature's own film in live and they will let you know.
Also we have built a loft called “Cognac Loft” with big windows across
the ceiling. You can sit down after dinner, get a cup of coffee and just look out
to the sky! What a perfect way to finish your adventurous day in the arctic!
Conferences & Meetings
Trappers Hotel has rooms that can be used for private groups or as
meeting rooms with modern audio visual equipment. You can arrange your meeting in
unique trapper’s atmosphere not like any other. With the unique atmosphere around
you, you will be sure to have fresh ideas and plenty of new visions. In the evening
we can arrange delicious dinner at the authentic Trappers Station with similar atmosphere
to top of your arctic meeting!
Back Country Skiing Hotel
Hotel is the northernmost back country skiing hotels in the world. There are several
magnificent mountains just a day trip away from the hotel. With only few locals around
there are good chances for untouched snow on the mountains and glaciers. Experience
the arctic nature on skies and let the majestic mountains and glaciers show your way!
We recommend you to take one of our guides with you to lead the group and take care
of the polar bear safety on your trip.
Relax and enjoy!
Sometimes it’s all right to do nothing. Not always does the
life have to be about achievements and goals, sometimes you can just enjoy the arctic
silence! The calm atmosphere of Trappers Hotel gives you the opportunity to lower
your shoulders and leave the stress behind you. Grab a cup of coffee and sit down
in our “Cognac Loft” where the glass ceiling displays the whole arctic
sky with stars and northern lights right above your head.
