10 Things to do when visiting during Summer

Summer in Svalbard is highlighted by the midnight sun, which dominates the sky for about 4 months. Here are the things you should not miss when you visit Svalbard during the summer.

Accommodation with personal charm

At Gjestehuset 102, our mission is to ensure that your stay is budget-friendly yet comfortable. Our welcoming ambiance, affordable rates, and convenient location make us the perfect choice for travellers seeking an unforgettable yet economical getaway. 

Gjestehuset 102 is located in Nybyen, at the top of the Longyear Valley, 2 km from the city centre. The guesthouse, built in 1946, formerly known as the “millionaires’ mansion”, was home to the best and most experienced miners. 

In 1999, Barrack 102 became Gjestehuset 102, currently hosting the happiest visitors in town. Gjestehuset 102 has 61 beds (7 singles, 19 doubles and 4 four-person rooms). 

We do not offer a luxury stay, but a 5-star experience in the Arctic!

Perfect Surroundings

Gjestehuset 102 is a great spot to start your adventures for summer and winter trips.

We are surrounded by glaciers, mountains, coal mines, fjords, and wildlife!

A lucky guest can spot polar foxes and reindeer, just by taking a look out the window.

Get speechless during the dark season, where you can experience the starry skies, or see the Northern Lights dancing towards the south – a beautiful phenomenon we can see both day and night here in Longyearbyen.

In spring and summer, you can fully enjoy our endless days- thanks to the midnight sun shining 24/7  from Mid-April till the end of August. 

Let us be part of the greatest adventure of your life!
