Visit magical Spitsbergen at 78°N, and experience the northern lights by dogsled!
Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost town, welcomes you to the Polar Night. Experience this magical season just 1300km from the North Pole, with accommodation at the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen, a sightseeing tour and dog sledding adventure!
Here in the heart of the Arctic, you can experience the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis, breath-taking Polar landscape and exhilarating activities, while also enjoying modern comforts like gourmet restaurants and tax-free shopping. The world’s northernmost airport for scheduled flights makes it surprisingly easy to visit and the fantastic Arctic location provides you with the perfect base for exploring the realm of the polar bear, where reindeer roam the streets and the landscape is stark yet stunningly beautiful.
The polar night provides you with a unique opportunity – every hour of darkness increases your chances of seeing the magnificent northern lights dancing in the sky. This fantastic display is even more amazing once you leave the lights of the town behind. To explore the wilderness in winter, we recommend dogsledding tours, snowmobile safaris or snow-cat adventures.
Spitsbergen Travel is currently offering an amazing package for those who wish to experience the Polar region and search for the Aurora Borealis. Our Polar Night package includes a Northern Lights dog sledding safari, where you can experience the deafening silence of the Arctic, the striking landscape and the amazing Aurora, all from your sled!
