Northern Lights Adventures

Seeing the Northern Lights is, for sure, one of everyone’s entry on their bucket list. Once a dream for you will become a reality when you pay a visit up here between October until February, where we experience total darkness all over Svalbard — making it easier for us to catch these magical lights!

Why in Svalbard?

Svalbard is located up North, and the fact that we have 24-hour darkness during the dark season  is a great advantage to get a chance to see this once in a lifetime beauty. 

Usually, these magical lights of different colors, dancing above the sky are found in places where there is less to no light pollution. Activity providers in Svalbard offer Northern Nights experiences by snowmobile, dog sledding, by boat, or even on foot equipped with snowshoes. Whichever you choose will give you a different kind of adventure that is, for sure, worth remembering. Indeed Svalbard fits the bill! 

Book your Northern Lights adventure with us and tick off one in that bucket list!

Northern Lights Evening

Experience the magic of being out in the wilderness at 78 degrees north! Our northern lights evening at Camp Barentz is a very special experience that you really should enjoy during your stay in Longyearbyen. As we leave town and drive into the Advent Valley your anticipation increases. The mountains on either side of the valley loom over us like giants, hardly visible in the polar night – or bathed in moonlight and the green glow of the aurora. What awaits us at the end of the road?

Northern lights hunt with Snowcat

Take the whole family along, and join us on an exciting snowcat trip as we hunt for the northern lights. The snowcat is impossible to miss when it parks outside your hotel, but as soon as you have exchanged the town for the wilderness, the vehicle will seem very small, and the wilderness very big. An aurora hunt by snowcat is a great way for people of all ages to leave civilisation behind. The trip is not physically demanding, and is also suitable for children.
