Svalbard – Spitsbergen Tailor-Made

  • Details

Details

During this adventure to the very far north of Norway, you will spend one night in the fantastic city of Tromsø, then continue onto stunning Spitsbergen and the Svalbard Archipelago. Tailor your time with a mixture of exhilarating Arctic activities and free time to relax and explore at your own leisure.

This five-night experience offers a short stay in Tromsø followed by a visit to the region of Spitsbergen and the Svalbard Archipelago. Enjoy the relative hustle and bustle of the city of Tromsø and its wonderful array of shops, restaurants and attractions before witnessing the contrasting stark beauty of the island of Spitsbergen, with its towering mountains, glaciers and fjords.

For your time in Spitsbergen, choose from Radisson Blu Polar Hotel or Funken Lodge. Both options offer wonderful modern comforts, and you can enjoy welcoming hospitality as well as tempting menus of Arctic delicacies.

Choose from a wide range of activities to make your holiday as active or relaxed as you like. A tailor-made holiday gives you complete freedom of how you spend your time.

Fill your time with memorable Arctic activities including dog sledding, snowmobiling and Northern Lights hunting, or spend the day exploring the charming town of Longyearbyen at ease, sampling hot drinks and cake in a local cafe, whilst marvelling at the beautiful mountainous backdrop.

Longyearbyen is culinary delight, so be sure to sample the local dishes. For the foodies, why not upgrade your dining experience to a renowned tasting menu at Huset or Funktionærmessen restaurant.

Set your own pace and plan out your own ideal winter activity holiday. Our Travel Experts are on hand to help and give you first-hand advice.

Please note that departures from January to mid-February are during the Polar Night, where you will have the opportunity to see the Northern Lights at any time of day from Spitsbergen. Departures from end of February to May are during ‘sunny winter’ season, with daylight hours and the chance to see the Northern Lights in the hours of darkness.
