Movie Night

What’s the most typical thing you can do during halloween?! Watch a horror movie- of course. We’ll start the hallo-week by watching.. the scariest movie of all time? It sure will be fun, with the perfect halloween atmosphere? We provide you with the scariest movie. Be careful, it’s dark outside so you never know who or what could creep into our hostel and climb inside to haunt you.

We’ll make use of our big projector and use the coffee room. The movie starts at 19:00.

The fee is 30 NOK per person. 100 NOK for a group of 4. Fees will be used for snacks and drinks!

Spooky guided tour to the scary corners of  the town

What better thing to do on Halloween than going outside for a walk through the city? We will use the eerie atmosphere in the darkness to discover Nybyen and Longyearbyen. Get a unique city-walk as it has never been done before. Be careful not to lose your nerves … but do not worry much, as the lady Aurora might guide us on our walk while she graces the sky above us!

The ideal route for this tour is Nybyen-Mine 2B-Huset-Cemetery-Church-Town

We will tell you not only spooky stories but also historical facts about our little town. 

We can end the tour with a short and relaxed visit to one of the pubs in town. This is during the Dark Season Blues so you can buy a ticket to enter pubs and watch a live concert! How fun!

Since it is generally dark in Longyearbyen, a reflective vest is a must when walking around. You can purchase the vest at the reception. 

The fee for the walking tour is 175 NOK per person, If you purchase this together with the Lecture night (which costs 175), you pay only 300 NOK for both. Tour starts at 19:00 and we meet up on the main stairs of the hostel. Tour will take approximately 2 hours. Dress warmly! Otherwise, we have to get Casper to give you warm hugs 👻

We encourage you to bring some board games with you if you can! What about introducing us to a game that’s original to where you come from? That would be cool!

No fee, just bring some snacks we can share with others!

19:00 at the coffee room.
