Tommy`s Lodge – Cabin at a Dogyard

Live simply and in contact with the nature!

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 whom are looking for a truly Svalbard experience.

Live out in the wilderness, cabin life.

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

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”.

It is safe to walk from here to town (we are in the safe zone, no guns needed!), but we do NOT recommend walking late in the evening or early in the morning to town without any protection (19:00, if dark, 23:00 if there is daylight)-08:00.

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. So, you can sleep safe here.

There are two bedrooms at this cabin. There is no running water, so we do not have a shower or any washing facilities, water will be provided in containers for cooking and washing face/hands.

The kitchen is equipped with all you need to cook simple meals.

We offer blanquettes, sheets and pillows to our guests, included in the price.  A cozy outdoor wooden dry toilet is available for guests use only.  Wi-Fi also included.

It is possible to rent our Turf Hut, not included and must be booked in advance.
