Trapper's Hotel, Longyearbyen, is by far the most exotic, unique and vibrating place I've ever visited. The combination of a particularily knowledgeable staff, great atmosphere and stunningly authentic "trapper's lodge"-style rooms made my four days at Spitsbergen highly memorable. I stayed from 30 December until 3 January, and had the wonderful opportunity of experiencing an authentic Spitsbergian new years eve, in all its hospitality and joy, to which the Trapper's Hotel was a perfect backdrop. The hotel facilitates for and offers dog sledding, snowmobile trips and longer expeditions, and much more. Definitely the most yolo'ish hotel I've ever been to. Go and be thrilled!
