Experience The Northernmost Northern Lights

Take a northern lights holiday on Spitsbergen, where the polar winter gives you exceptional chances of seeing the natural fireworks of the Arctic.

Located just 1200 kilometres from the North Pole, Spitsbergen is the largest of the Svalbard islands. The aurora borealis is seen here more often than in any other inhabited place, and due to the sun's position well below the horizon, it is also possible to experience it during daytime!

A unique display of light

Typical features of the daytime aurora is that it is less intense than nighttime aurora. This is because the particles that enter directly are slow and have less energy, than those coming in from the nighttime. The daytime 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 seeing the red light with the naked eye is very rare. Cameras, on the other hand, can capture it!

The magical aurora - a unique display of light, ever changing, ever fascinating. Named for the Greek goddess of dawn, Aurora, the northern lights have long been a source for myth and legend, and today attracts many visitors to the Arctic. To learn more about the aurora check out our Aurora Borealis information page.
