So quiet !
Dec 2019
Such a beautiful and unusual church (especially for French people) : small, pretty and heated.
It's the real house of God where you can pray, meditate, read or just spend good time with coffee or tea. So quiet

A must visit at the church when visiting Svalbard
Mar 2019 • Friends
Very special visit in such a remote place as Svalbard is. The church is decorated and at the same time very cosy. They are serving coffee when you visit the church

Cozy Arctic Church
Nov 2019
I am a big fan of Norwegian church architecture and I really liked this one. It looks a little bit like a chalet, and it is very, very cozy inside. Neat paintings by the altar, a little souvenir shop, bunch of books to read... I think anyone should have a visit there !

A good place to visit and Meditate
Sep 2019 • Solo
I visit this Church every time I am up here in Longyearbyen-and to just sit here alone,light a candle and Meditate is a very good and spiritual experience for me.
The Church is always open for everyone that needs a moment of peace-please visit the Church up here if you need that on your Arctic trip..

Don´t miss this little church
Aug 2019
Very friendly atmosphere, beautifully decorated. You feel welcome while entering: "home away from home" If I lived in Longyearbyen, I would go there often even if I´m not religious.

A nice place to have a short rest
Jul 2019 • Family
Staying in this little church is good. The atmosphere is friendly, you can sit there, pray to good or just have some quiet time inside. The intereior is fine and quite interesting. It is worth to go by foot to the church.

A modest but pleasant church
Jul 2019 • Solo
We were told that this is the most northerly church in the world and I can well beieve it as it is at 78 degrees north!

It is a pleasant wooden structure on the outskirts of Longyearbyen. It is pretty large for such a small town and is clearly also used as a social centre as there is a lot of space.

It is beside a graveyard but people are no longer buried here because of difficulties with the permafrost.

It is well worth a visit
