Dark and Magical Spitsbergen
Svalbard Northern Lights Short Break
The departure of the sun below the horizon marks the beginning of winter and the Polar Night, or Northern Lights season in Svalbard - Norway’s remote island archipelago high in the Arctic Sea. The landscape is filtered by a twilight blue and changing skies - from dense stars in a blanket of darkness to Aurora greens and purples. Between the months of October and February, the Polar Night offers a magical time to visit and experience the possibility of the Northern Lights in a destination that is akin more to the North Pole than to Norway itself. This short break is available from the end of October to mid February and can be tailored to suit your requirements - perhaps extend your stay here or combine with Tromsø on mainland Norway.
