Short overview video about our room at Funken Lodge, Longyearbyen Svalbard.

The spark has jumped…

The hotel name in German is “spark”. But after only one night we can say: the spark has jumped!

Before we went on our Spitsbergen/Svalbard expedition trip, we spent one night at Funken Lodge. We could definitely imagine spending more time there. 

The hotel is modern and beautifully furnished and has a warm Nordic touch. Room No. 224. Our lunch was very tasty and the service (reception/restaurant) were very friendly.

With its unique and central location, the hotel has fantastic panoramic views of Longyearbyen.

Only a 10 minute drive from the airport, the hotel is centrally located. You will also see a little bit of Longyearbyen by air – shot with our drone DJI Mavic Pro.
