Spitsbergen Light Winter Break

5 Day Tour, from £1249 per person

Embark on a five day winter adventure high above the Arctic Circle in the remote town of Longyearbyen, nestled deep within rugged mountains and icy plains. Be enamored by the charm of this idyllic setting, where colourful buildings are in stark contrast to the snow capped hills and mountains that surround them.

From February to April, as the sun begins to reappear over the horizon after long winter nights, each day becomes longer than the next. Snow is still on the ground, so embark on a range of winter activities including snowmobiling, dogsledding, ice caving and if you are lucky, catch a glimpse of the northern lights dancing in the sky above Longyearbyen.
