Sunsets, twilight and northern lights

The autumn on Svalbard offers beautiful colours and fantastic light shows. As the sun is descending further and further down the horizon towards the polar night, October is the month to enjoy the twilight. The sky has a special dark blue colour, and in the evenings you can enjoy long sunsets. When the sun has set, you might even be lucky to experience the magical northern lights. This is a rather unique period when you can experience both sunsets, blue light and the northern lights.

It is still boating season, and we also recommend hiking up the city's nearby mountains. This is a time to enjoy the nature and the beautiful landscapes.

Stay at Funken Lodge

With modern comfort in historical surroundings, Funken Lodge offers a unique Svalbard experience. This luxurious boutique hotel is located on a hill in Longyearbyen, with magnificent views over town and the two glaciers Larsbreen and Longyearbreen. The cosy atmosphere creates a tranquil base to relax in after an intense day outdoors. You can find a snug spot in front of the open fire, and gain new inspiration from our library filled with polar literature. Enjoy a cocktail from Funken Bar and let your thoughts wander to polar adventures and expeditions. All of the rooms have a contemporary design, and our friendly staff will ensure you a perfect stay.

This package includes a wonderful 7 course dinner in Funktionærmessen Restaurant. Here a delightful culinary experience awaits, with a beautiful view over Longyearbyen and the surrounding mountains.

Wildlife and glacier cruise

Included in this package is also a boat tour with the hybrid-electric catamaran MS Bard. Its modern and spacious design gives you the feeling of being at one with nature. This more environmentally friendly boat tour truly allows you to experience the Arctic silence.

The route takes you through magnificent landscapes, to Billefjorden and the wonderful glacier front of Nordenskiöldbreen. The tundra in the autumn has a wonderful colour palette, with contrasting shades of green and yellow. Once in front of the fantastic glacier front, we take plenty of time to enjoy the view. With a bit of luck, wildlife also appears along the way, such as reindeer, seals, and – with extra luck – polar bears. We sail past cultural monuments and historical places, and our guides ensure that you will have an unforgettable experience for all senses.
