Spitsbergen Polar Night

Spitsbergen Polar Night

During the winter months, more specifically between November 14 and January 29, you can experience a very special phenomenonon Svalbard - the Polar night. During this period the sun doesn't shine on Svalbard - a mesmerising experience.

24 hour darkness

Call it magic - Once the sun retreats to more than 6° below the horizon the Longyearbyen becomes a magical place lit only by street lights, the aurora borealis and moonlight, which glitters in the snow. This creates a unique atmosphere, and the mystic light reminds you that you are, without a doubt, well off the beaten track.

Northern lights on Svalbard

Without the sun your chances of seeing the rich colours of the northern lights dancing in the sky are doubled. This solar effect in incredible and truly inspiring. Dream of seeing the aurora? Visit Svalbard in the Polar night, where the northern lights can shine both 'day' and night.
