Welcome to Arctic Workshop
The only workshop on Svalbard, where you can make your own arctic souvenirs.
The workshop is located at Galleri Svalbard, in Nybyen. From Longyearbyen center, it will take about 20-25 minutes to walk, or about 4 minutes by car. The workshop is constructed in a homely manner, with “typically Norwegian” as its theme. We offer a variety of handcrafts, in a cozy atmosphere, and also traditional Norwegian foods, and transport, to and from your hotel. The workshop is here for everyone, no matter age, health, knowledge, or nationality. Here you will get the chance to meet other travelers, and locals, from all corners of the world, at the same time as you can indulge yourself in arctic, and Norwegian handcrafts, that will be the perfect thing to brag about when you get home, and envy your friends with.
Most people visit Svalbard just 3-4 days, and of course you want to make the most of your time here. Long snowmobile trips, in cold climate, and boat trips, to other parts of Spitsbergen, can be demanding, and often, a “city-day” will do you good, so you can gather some energy, but you still don’t want to feel that you are missing out. What about a day in town, with museum, some sightseeing, and a workshop?
There are also more people bringing children with them, to Svalbard. Sometimes it can be a bit tricky to find excursions that include the youngest of them. The workshop is perfect for families with children, and you will get to spend some quality time, that also creates handcrafted memories, from Svalbard. Or maybe you have always dreamt about a trip to Svalbard, but have not managed until your retirement days, and your health won’t allow you to go all in, everyday? Or you are one of those many, who fell in love with this place, and are visiting again, and again, and just want to do something new? No matter what the cause, you are all welcome.
