We are located at the first dog yard outside Longyearbyen when you go towards Adventdalen. A 15-20 minutes’ walk from Longyearbyen`s Centrum.

Accommodation that suits those who are looking for a truly Svalbard experience.

Live out in the wilderness, cabin life.

Here we live simply, as back in the old days.

A genuine “Svalbard” overnight!

If you come during the summer you will experience 24hrs daylight outside, beautiful landscape, and you will maybe see foxes, birds, reindeers nearby our place too.

From mid- May to July a large common eider duck colony comes here to nest around our dog yard and cabins. We count 300-650 ducks every year.

During the winter, the amazing northern lights are often seen from here. The distance from the city lights makes even better to experience “the greenlights-show”.

You can sleep safe here

It is safe to walk from here to town, but we do NOT recommend walking late in the evening or early in the morning to town without any protection when it is dark outside.

During working hours is always possible to ask us if you need a ride to town, we can agree on a time. It is always possible to order a taxi if you prefer.

Sometimes the Polar bear can come nearby town, but as we have dogs, they are very clever to warn us if the Polar bear is nearby our place.

There will always be a person that works with us at the Dog Yard during the night, mostly for supervising the dogs, but also to follow up with our overnight guests in the night, if necessary.
