Northern lights cruise towards Barentsburg
Write the next entry in your travel diary!
Join us on the worlds northernmost fjord-cruise towards Barentsburg, with a chance to experience natures own spectacular light show.
Svalbard is the only place you can experience the northern lights during the day. The daytime Aurora is more red than what we normally see. Not quite as easy for the human eye to notice, but bring your camera, and you will be pleasantly surprised.
After about 3 hours we arrive in Barentsburg, the Russian settlement at Svalbard. The settlement counts about 400 people, but fully lit in the dark, it looks a lot bigger. The guide will lead us through the streets and share the history of this once quite large coal-mining town.
Depending on availability, there will be an opportunity to visit the local hotel, the local brewery, as well as the souvenir shop where unique christmas presents from the top of the world can be purchased.
On our trip back to Longyearbyen, we get another chance to spot the luminous, and hauntingly beautiful, ghostly dancers on the polar night skies .
A warm lunch is served on the way to Barentsburg.
Marinated whale meat, baked salmon and pork rib, is on the menu. Served with a pasta salad, rice and our own locally baked bread.
(If notified in advance, we will try to accommodate food allergies or other special diets. For special diets that include ingredients not on our normal menu, an additional fee of NOK 50,- applies. This fee is payable onboard.)
Dress in warm and windproof clothing, and remember to bring your camera!
Fully licensed bar. Waffles, snacks as well as some souvenirs can be purchased on board. Payment with cash or credit card
