5 Day Tour, from £1445 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 which lasts from 14 November to 29 January, aurora appearances are possible not just in the evening, but throughout the day as well.
