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!
Worlds Northernmost Back Country Skiing Hotel
Trappers 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.

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!
