Spits­ber­gen-tou­rism: growth in cer­tain parts

Tou­rism in Spits­ber­gen is on the growth in cer­tain parts. Espe­ci­al­ly the num­ber of lar­ge crui­se ship pas­sen­gers has increased signi­fi­cant­ly from 24,000 (2011) to 42,000 (2012). The figu­res had drop­ped signi­fi­cant­ly in the years of the cri­sis fol­lo­wing 2007.

The num­ber of over­nights in hotels in Lon­gye­ar­by­en has been more or less sta­ble for a cou­ple of years, ran­ging bet­ween 83,000 and 89,000. Com­pared to ear­ly 2012, the hotel busi­ness is curr­ent­ly quite hap­py. One important reason is said to be the air­line Nor­we­gi­an, which star­ted to fly to Lon­gye­ar­by­en again recent­ly. The com­pe­ti­ti­on with SAS has led to more afforda­ble seats on flights to Lon­gye­ar­by­en, an important bot­t­len­eck for almost all tou­rism in Sval­bard.

The num­bers of tho­se ven­tu­ring out into remo­ter parts on their own has always been fluc­tua­ting to some degree, bet­ween 400 and 750, wit­hout any clear trend. The same goes for snow mobi­le tou­rism, which depends on the dura­ti­on of the sea­son, which again depends on the wea­ther in late April and ear­ly May and is accor­din­gly impos­si­ble to pre­dict.

Such and simi­lar figu­res can be read in the tou­rism sta­tis­tics, recent­ly published by the Sys­sel­man­nen.
