Om arbeidsgiveren

Hurtigruten Svalbard

Hurtigruten Svalbard (part of Hurtigruten Group) is a total supplier of land-based adventures, accommodation, and dining on Svalbard. Located in the world’s northernmost permanent settlement, Longyearbyen, we bring people closer to the vast Arctic nature – all year round. From midnight sun to polar night, our entire team stands ready to welcome travelers and make Polar dreams come true.

Established in 1989 (under the name Spitsbergen Travel), Hurtigruten Svalbard is the eldest tour operator on Svalbard. From being a travel agency that helped local coal miners travel south, we are today a full-service provider helping people travel north.

Our highly experienced tour department offers a wide range of options for exploring the fascinating wildlife and untouched wilderness in a sustainable and responsible manner. Whether on a comfortable day tour on snowmobile, dog sled, boat or by foot, or on a challenging multi-day ski/kayak/dog sledding/snowmobile expedition, Svalbard creates memories for life.

In addition, we operate three unique hotels in Longyearbyen: The exclusive boutique hotel Funken Lodge, the cozy hostel Coal Miners’ Cabins, and the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen. Each facility has its own restaurant and bar, with its own style and charm that allows both guests and locals to find their favorite spot.

Our two retail facilities Longyear78 Outdoor & Expeditions and Ingeniør G. Paulsen (IGP) ensures access to all clothing, gear and equipment needed for a stay on this remote Arctic Archipelago.

Hurtigruten Svalbard holds a world leading position in Arctic sustainable tourism, including electric snowmobiles and catamaran – powered with renewable energy from the Arctic winds and midnight sun.
