Exciting dinners

Are you seeking a dining experience that transcends the ordinary? We offer several options tailored to your group's preferences. At the hotel, indulge in an exclusive dinner experience featuring a private chef and sommelier. Alternatively, for a truly authentic Svalbard experience, we highly recommend dining at Camp Barentz. Immerse yourself in the ambiance of a cabin modeled after Willem Barentz's own, where you'll gather around the fire to savor traditional reindeer bidos. Throughout the evening, enjoy engaging lectures about the rich history of Svalbard.

Champagne and wine tasting

In our basement, you'll discover our meticulously curated wine and champagne cellars. Here, we house a collection of exclusive bottles from various producers and vintages. Would you be interested in a private tour of these historic chambers, complete with educational insights and tastings? The entrance to these rooms once served as a shooting range, and the champagne cellar was once the place where town residents purchased their monthly alcohol quotas. Prepare for a captivating journey through history and an unparalleled, exclusive experience.
