Northern Lights hunting with snowcat

Northern lights hunting with a snowcat is a nice and comfortable way to get out into the wild Svalbard nature. The trip is not physically demanding, and suits all ages and fitness levels. The guide takes you out of the city, away from Longyearbyen's lights, into the magical polar night. You drive across the frozen Advent valley, and there will be several stops along the way to look for the northern lights. We recommend wearing warm winter clothes so you can enjoy the northern lights outside if it shows up on the sky. Read more about the tour here.
