Jump on board our bus and go hunting for The Northern Lights!
Experience the magic of the Arctic wilderness by joining a guided bus tour as we go chasing The Northern Lights.
The polar night is the perfect backdrop for experiencing the Northern Lights. When the sun is set below the horizon, it's almost as dark midday as midnight. Perhaps it was the magical light that made those long winter nights bearable for trappers and adventurers in the long Arctic night that lasts from November to February? What will you feel when you see the Northern Lights for the first time?
We'll use the roads in Longyearbyen to look for the aurora borealis - and during our hunt we'll serve you something to drink and biscuits while you enjoy the Arctic silence.
During this tour, we'll show you a Northern Lights movie that will give you a better historic understanding of how this phenomenon is created.
In Svalbard due to the polar nights, we can see dayside Aurora. This is Northern Lights that occur during the day! Typical features of the dayside aurora is that they are less intense than nightside aurora. This is because the particles that enter directly are slow and have less energy, than those coming in from the nightside. The dayside aurora appears green to the naked eye, but in reality it is red. However, the human eye is much less sensitive to red than green light, so seing the red light with the naked eye is very rare. Cameras, on the other hand, can capture it!
One beverage (with or without alcohol) is included. You can purchase more beverage, a hot meal, coffee and tea on board.
Make sure you dress warm for a cold winter night. During this trip, we may make several stops and head outside to see the Northern Lights. It's important to at least bring a warm hat and mittens or gloves. Wool base layer is also recommended.
Our Northern Lights bus will pick you up at your hotel. Please be ready at 9:00 pm the latest for departure. Duration 2-3 hours. WC on board. Fee use of WIFI on board.
