Located high in the Arctic Ocean, Spitsbergen is the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago in northern Norway. Stay in the world’s most northerly town, Longyearbyen, and experience the incredible period of darkness when the sun remains at more than six degrees below the horizon. In this Polar Night period, aurora appearances are possible not just in the evening, but throughout the day as well.
Between 14th November until 29th January, it is dark enough to search for the Northern Lights at any time of day, and the otherworldly feeling of being in the dark is something that must be experienced to be believed.
