Spitsbergen – Northern Lights in Norway’s Arctic Archipelago

  • Details


Journey to the northern most part of Norway to experience this Arctic wilderness in all its glory. Explore the mini-metropolis of Longyearbyen before embracing this snow-laden landscape with husky sledding, snowmobiling, and Northern Lights hunting on this 5-night package tour of Spitsbergen.
It may be home to the northernmost town on the planet and covered in a near-pristine Arctic landscape, but the Svalbard archipelago is also easily accessible, undeniably welcoming, and a spectacular Northern Lights location.
You'll spend five nights on the largest of the islands, Spitsbergen, to experience the very best of the far north. Beginning with a guided tour of Longyearbyen, you'll discover the fascinating history of this tiny yet mighty metropolis. During the tour, you'll visit the hugely important Global Seed Vault and have plenty of photo opportunities of the jaw-dropping landscape and beautiful flora and fauna along the way.
Outside of Longyearbyen, you'll make your way across the Arctic tundra in true winter style. One day will see you drive into the wilderness on an electric snowmobile safari. These near-silent machines will ensure you won't scare off the local wildlife, so cameras at the ready!
At night, you'll take full advantage of the dark winter skies with three Northern Lights excursions. You'll visit a wilderness camp at the foot of a mountain - a prime Aurora location - take on an exciting Northern Lights search on a snowcat vehicle, and tick off the bucket-list activity of a husky safari as your sled slides into the polar night and on the hunt for Mother Nature's light show.
Crafted by our travel experts with first-hand experience of this incredible island, this five-night Spitsbergen trip has been carefully designed to ensure you experience all the Arctic has to offer for an unforgettable stay.
