Getting to Svalbard is a little different than most places and therefore not so straightforward.
Even though Svalbard is a part of the Norwegian Kingdom and Norway has signed the Schengen Agreement, a passport must be carried, because Svalbard is located outside the Schengen Agreement.
As a result, when you change planes in Oslo, you first have to get your luggage from the conveyor belt and then go through the checkpoint again with your luggage. Svalbard, a domestic flight? Beware! Special regulations apply to Svalbard and the plane departs from the international gate. This does not apply to flights via Tromsø to Longyearbyen.
Once you arrive in Longyearbyen, everything becomes very manageable. The airport is small and just at the exit there are cabs and buses ready to take you to the settlement about 4 kilometers away.
We will be happy to pick you up from the airport with our minibus.
