Join us for a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Eve celebration! Let the Northern lights and the Polar Star be your fireworks as they light up the Polar Night. Spitsbergen Travel and the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen welcome you to a very special yuletide event in a breath-taking Arctic setting. Combine wilderness experiences with traditional Norwegian Christmas delicacies, or celebrate the arrival of the New Year with locals and visitors alike over a banquet dinner. Experience this magical season in the world's northernmost town, just 1300km from the North Pole, with accommodation at the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel Spitsbergen, a sightseeing tour and dog sledding adventure.
Join us for a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Eve celebration! Spitsbergen is surprisingly accessible, with two international airlines flying here during the winter, and Longyearbyen boasts all the modern comforts one could ask for. Come and explore the incredible high Arctic where reindeer roam free, polar bears out-number people and the moonlight glitters in the snow.
Spitsbergen Travel is currently offering a fantastic package for those who wish to experience the festive season in the Polar region. The package includes accommodation, sightseeing and 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!
During this period the sun is well below the horizon all day long, and this dark and mysterious season gives you the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights at any time of day. This fantastic display is even more amazing once you leave the lights of the town behind and explore the wilderness on dog sledding tours, snowmobile safaris or snow-cat adventures
