Northern light boat trip to Barentsburg

All aboard MS Langøysund! Head to the Russian side of Svalbard for a very special Aurora Borealis adventure. 

Search the sky

Heading away from the lights of Longyearbyen in the dark morning light is a mystical experience in itself, but soon you will see just how di erent the sky looks without the reflections from street-lamps, buildings and cars. From the sea, we will have panoramic views over the Isfjord, and can search the entire sky for a sight of the northern lights. Lunch will be served on board, served hot from the grill. 

The Soviet era

We will make a stop at Barentsburg, where a local guide will lead us on an interesting guided tour through the town itself. This starts with the famous stairs, about 300 of them, but a minibus can also be organised for a nominal charge. Barentsburg is a colourful mix of modern and soviet era styles, and the school is perhaps the highlight. You will also have time for a spot of souvenir shopping, before returning to the boat. 

Heading back to town

Once again we will be on the sea, leaving the lights of town behind. We will turn our eyes to the sky, and continue our hunt for the Aurora Borealis. Should the whimsical lights not appear, the knowledgeable on board guide is in place to share a wealth of information on the region, and the smell of freshly-made waffles may tempt you into the bar.
