Spitsbergen Polar Nights at the Radisson Blu

5 Day Tour, from £929 per person

Located high in the Arctic Ocean, Spitsbergen is the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago in northern Norway. Stay in the world’s most northerly town, Longyearbyen, and experience the incredible period of darkness when the sun remains at more than six degrees below the horizon. In this Polar Night period, aurora appearances are possible not just in the evening, but throughout the day.

This tour is offered on selected dates (see tab.) For tour options on other dates, please contact our Spitsbergen specialists.

Suggested Excursion: Dog Sledging
Embark on a breathtaking dog sledging adventure beneath the starry skies and glittering moonlight.

DAY 3
Suggested Excursion: Polar Night Safari on Snowmobile
While the sun is hidden beneath the horizon, embark on an atmospheric snowmobile journey through the wilderness, lit only by the Polar Night. Look out for reindeer and polar foxes as they search for food in the snow, and warm up with hot drinks along the way. Chances of seeing the northern lights are heightened during the Polar Night period, so be sure to keep an eye out for the elusive aurora in the night sky. (B)
