    Northern lights on Svalbard – Experience the Polar Night

    December - January

    Experience the wonders of the Arctic with us: perpetual darkness, the radiant light of the stars and the moon over deep snowy solitude and – with a bit of luck – wonderful northern lights. This colour spectacle of red, green and blue is a unique experience.

    From November to January, the dark season reigns on Svalbard. Only the moon and the stars illuminate the snow-covered landscape. Here, thanks to the continuous darkness, we have the chance to see auroras around the clock. At the same time, the solar storms that trigger the northern lights when they collide with the Earth's magnetic field are most active at this time.

    On Europe's northernmost archipelago, polar bears, reindeer and arctic foxes are out and about in the Arctic nature. Snowmobiles, dog sleds and snowshoes are the preferred means of transport in winter. You will also use these to get around during our four-day Northern Lights Tour on Svalbard. Each day is dedicated to one means of transport. In addition, you will get an exciting guided tour of the northernmost settlement in the world – Longyearbyen.

    With a little luck, all our activities offer the chance to experience the dancing colours of the Northern Lights in the night sky.

    Day 1

    Arrival and Sightseeing

    Welcome to Svalbard! We pick you up at the airport in Longyearbyen and take you to your accommodation, where you will stay for the whole trip. On an extensive city tour, we will get to know the diversity of the northernmost small town in the world. Feel the special atmosphere of the place, and discover the treasures of the museum and the art gallery. Take a deep breath of the clear Arctic air and let the peace and cosiness of the dark time take effect on you.
