    Svalbard - Experience the Polar Night

    January

    Experience the polar night of Svalbard.

    Perpetual darkness, the brilliant light of the stars and the moon above the snow-covered landscape and then suddenly a colourful spectacle of red, green and blue. The Arctic Northern Lights are a wonderful natural spectacle that you will enjoy with a little luck on our 4-day Northern Lights Tour.

    From November to January, Svalbard is in the dark season with its continuous night. This is the perfect opportunity to have a chance to see the northern lights at any time of the day or night. In addition, the solar storms that trigger the Northern Lights when they collide with the Earth's magnetic field are most active at this time.

    During these days you will actively get to know Svalbard. Snowscooters, dog sleds and snowshoes are the preferred means of transport on our island in winter. During our Northern Lights Tour, you will also use these to set off into the Arctic wilderness. With any of our activities, you'll have the chance to see the dancing colours of the Northern Lights in the night sky or encounter the exciting wildlife of reindeer, polar bears and Arctic foxes.

    Are you ready to embark on your winter Svalbard adventure?
