Jump onboard our bus and go hunting for The Northern Lights!


Experience the magic of the Arctic wilderness by joining a guided bus tour as we go chasing The Northern Lights.

The polar night is the perfect backdrop for experiencing the Northern Lights. When the sun is set below the horizon, it's almost as dark midday as midnight. Perhaps it was the magical light that made those long winter nights bearable for trappers and adventurers in the long Arctic night that lasts from November to February? What will you feel when you see the Northern Lights for the first time?

We'll use the roads in Longyearbyen to look for the aurora borealis - and during our hunt we'll serve you something to drink and biscuits while you enjoy the Arctic silence.

During this tour, we'll show you a Northern Lights movie that will give you a better historic understanding of how this phenomenon is created.


One beverage (with or without alcohol) is included. You can purchase more beverage, a hot meal, coffee and tea on board. No meal is included. Only snacks.
