"It is clear that it will be a disaster if they are allowed to have a seasonal hotel and pump up the summer season without contributing to full-year tourism," Brunvoll said. "We would strongly warn against it and hope politicians are aware of their responsibilities."

Furthermore, The Arctic Student Welfare Organization is a partially government-funded entity, Brunvoll noted.

"That they would come in and partake in the commercial industry that will be delivered on a yearly basis is completely distasteful, but they obviously have the right to build," he said.
