Activity description

Embark upon an unforgettable Arctic adventure in Svalbard and join the chase for the ethereal phenomenon that is the Northern Lights, departing from Longyearbyen. The perfect excursion for outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, and photographers! 

Svalbard is an archipelago located in the Arctic Ocean, situated between mainland Norway and the North Pole. This remote and unique part of Norway is known for its extreme Arctic climate, stunning landscapes,  and diverse wildlife. In addition, it is one of the best places in the world to witness the dancing colours of the Aurora Borealis! 

On this 3.5-hour tour, you'll travel outside of Longyearbyen in the company of an experienced guide and driver, visiting the best places to take in the Northern Lights, well away from the lights of the city. You'll also be treated to a warm beverage and biscuits in the middle of the Arctic wilderness. For photography enthusiasts, your guide is more than happy to assist with photo-taking tips for capturing the Northern Lights as well as night photography in general. If luck is on your side, you and your group (a maximum capacity of 8 people) will savour the majesty of the Aurora Borealis and the tranquillity of this unique Arctic environment, making it an evening to remember!  

If you're travelling to Svalbard, don't miss this Northern Lights Chase from Longyearbyen and witness the magic of the Aurora Borealis!
