Svalbard is located up in the North in the Arctic Ocean. It's complete remote location – there are more polar bears living on the island than humans – makes it one of the best spots in the world for the Northern Lights. Without any light pollution from cities. And far out in the raw wilderness!
During this exciting snowmobile trip, you will be guided by local experts who know the best spots for the Aurora Borealis, also known as the polar lights. So be prepared to drive through untouched valleys or all the way up to the summit of glaciers.
You will discover the island via snowmobile. Your experienced guides will go the extra mile in order to give you the best Northern Lights experience. That means there won't be a fixed route. Based on the weather conditions and the Northern Lights forecast, your guide will do everything possible in order to find clear skies and beautiful views.
You will finish the trip at a traditional cabin where you are going to enjoy a 3-course dinner and finally warm up at a fireplace.
Sounds like an exciting and fun time in the snow? Don’t wait and book your trip now!
