Northern lights adventures

Polar night experiences at Svalbard


Have you seen the Northern Lights?

It is a heartstopping moment when the aurora appears in the sky. The lights dance across the sky, changing colour and form, growing and shrinking.

Spitsbergen is one of the few places on Earth where you can see the aurora during daytime as well. During the darkest time of the year – November until January – even the daytime sky is so dark you can see the Northern Lights. Join one of your several northern light trips, away from the city lights and enjoy the Arctic darkness.

Escape the town lights and busy life and join us for a unique Trapper’s Dinner at Trapper’s Station.

There are three essential things that are vital to the citizens of Longyearbyen; a snowmobile, a rifle for polar bear protection, and a husky. The ones who do not have their own husky, will happily help with others.

We would like to invite you to spend your morning as a husky handler at Basecamp Trapper’s Station, situated 10 km outside of town. Our 90 Alaska huskies are not only excellent sled dogs, they are lovable fur-balls that can never get enough of cuddling. They will be more than excited by your visit and the time spent in our dog yard. Prepare yourself for a lot of fun and muddy paws prints!

Set high in the Arctic Ocean, the remote Svalbard archipelago extends between 74 and 81° north. It is the northernmost place in Europe and is the farthest north you can travel by scheduled flight.

Svalbard offers Arctic experiences on the edge of the inhabitable world, but it’s not as inaccessible as people might think. Start in the morning from the central Europe and you will be in Longyearbyen by mid-day. And in one of our remote stations by the evening. There are no roads beyond Longyearbyen. Here, you really are on the edge of civilization. Outside the city only, the vast wilderness is waiting for you. Despite its history of coal mining and trapping, Spitsbergen is still mainly pristine wilderness. One of the most fragile ecosystems anywhere on Earth.

Dogsledding on Spitsbergen is a unique experience. There is only arctic silence around you. Only the panting of the dogs and the scraping of the sled runners against the snow break the complete silence. At this time of the year, you can see northern light throughout the day, so if you are lucky there might be some dancing on the sky on your lunch break.
