    Svalbard at the Blue Hour

    February

    Experience the wonders of the Arctic with us in the light of the returning sun

    A sea of red, blue and yellow bathes the snow-covered landscape of Svalbard in a breathtaking atmosphere. You can experience this very special time in February - when the sun is red below the horizon during the day and the northern lights dance in the sky at night.

    The famous blue hour attracts not only photographers with its incredible light moods, but also adventurers who want to conquer the Arctic wilderness of Svalbard with dog sleds, snowscooters and hiking boots.

    Let yourself be enchanted by the light of the blue hour and come with us on a spectacular journey!
