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.
