Svalbard Polar Night
Travel to discover the darkness of the polar night
During our staying in Longyearbyen, an ancient mining settlement in the Svalbard islands, we will feel the polar night, where there is no difference between day and night, darkness reigns in every island’s corners, and the stars and “Northern Lights” give us a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
On this trip our senses must to be prepared to enjoy the calmness that the Arctic offers.
We will make a dog sleighing in the snowy and natural landscapes of Svalbard and we could also descend into the ice and enter a fascinating cave in Lars Glacier, with lots of stalactites. In addition, we could make a snowmobiling experience to observe the Aurora Borealis across the sky.
