Eating breakfast in "Shang-Po-lar" can cause your mind to wander back to the old days of the miners in the tunnels and their pitch-black existence.

Mary-Ann has collected items from when the mines were in use, and you feel as if you are in a small museum. Everything is perfect down to the last detail. Even the crockery is of the same dark shade as the mountain where many had - and still have their place of work.

The name Shang-Po-lar comes from the mining community of the town Sverdrupsbyen in the 1930s. The dining room is designed around the mining life which used to dominate our existence here on Svalbard. A perfect place to find inspiration for your own voyages of discovery and trips in the area.

Breakfast is served every morning between 7am and 10am.
