Mary-Ann’s Polarrigg is one of the most northerly hotel resorts on the planet, a place with soul, distinct character and a wonderful, relaxed vibe. “I want to offer my guests a taste of the real Svalbard, of the lives of the miners and trappers who have left their mark on the island over previous generations,” says owner Mary-Ann Dahle. She recognised the potential of the building when it came up for sale in 2001, after renting it, and thanks to her indomitable drive she hassince converted the shacks into an authenticand unique place where visitors to Longyearbyen are able to come and experience something magical.
