Embark on a winter adventure in the wilderness exploring the best Svalbard has to offer, lead by a team of eager huskies. Spend free days high above the Arctic Circle in the remote town of Longyearbyen, nestled deep within rugged mountains and icy plains. One can't help but be enamoured 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 and if you are lucky, catch a glimpse of the northern lights dancing in the magical sky above Longyearbyen.
