Nordpolet

Drinks in Longyearbyen

The Nordpolet booze outlet is at the back of the Coop Supermarket. A surprisingly good buy is 'XO Svalbard Cognac' (avoid the VSOP variety) – it makes an original gift for friends back home. Residents are subject to a monthly alcohol quota or limit, while visitors must show their passport and boarding pass or departure ticket in order to buy alcohol.
