Big city lights

Longyearbyen is a small "big" city. Here you get amazing food, cold and warm drinks and the feeling of being part of a community. People here are inviting and like to chat over a cup of coffee. The northern lights is a great way to start a conversation with someone up here. Even though you can see the light day and night, remember it's completely dark here this time of year, the Northern Lights still seem to amaze the citizens of Longyearbyen.
