Hi, There is an airportbus that will wait for all passengers and it will drop you off at Coal Miners Cabins. If you don`t want to take the bus then there will always be taxis standing outside as well. Hope this will help!

Hi, If you go online to Hurtigruten Svalbards page and search you will find both their email and phone number. I tried to copy and paste it but tripadvisor doesnt allow it. Hope this helps.
