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!

Join us on a snowmobile safari over the frozen river delta in the Advent Valley to a natural ice phenomenon known by the Inuits as “pingos”. We leave the artificial light of Longyearbyen and enter the dark landscape illuminated by the snow, moon and stars. Remember to look up in case the Northern Lights appear.
Visiting the area around the Tempelfjord and Sassendalen valley during the Polar Night is a wonderful experience that gives you a real sense of being at one with nature. We will heat up our lavvu for lunch and storytelling in a historical setting surrounded by wild nature.
The darkness and the snow arrives at about the same time in Svalbard – and the white cover makes the polarnight seem less dark. Dancing northern lights,glittering moonlight and the dark skys contrast to the white snowcover is something you dont want to miss out on!
