Svalbard is the only safe place in the world where you can experience the northern lights during daytime and you will experience that the daytime aurora is more red than during night time.
After about two hours sailing under the stars, the same stars our Arctic heroes used to navigate after for decades, we arrive in Barentsburg which is the main Russian settlement on Svalbard. Our tour guide will walk us through the streets and share stories of life in Barentsburg in the past. There will be an opportunity to visit the local hotel, the local brewery, as well as the souvenir shop where unique Christmas presents from the top of the world can be purchased. On our trip back to Longyearbyen, we will get a second chance to look for the northern lights.
