Nov - Mar
Take the whole family along, and join us on an exciting snowcat trip as we hunt for the northern lights. This is the perfect tour for you who wish to leave town in a safe and comfortable way. The tour is not physically demanding, and is also suitable for children.

The snowcat is impossible to miss when it arrives to pick you up. However, as soon as you have exchanged the town for the wilderness, the vehicle will seem very small and the wilderness very big.

Your guide will drive you out of town, away from the artificial lights and into the mysterious, dark wild. The route goes over the frozen Adventdalen ('Advent Valley'), where you will make several stops to look for the northern lights. During the drive, you will sit in comfortable seats in the heated snowcat. However, we advise you to dress warmly so that you can step outside and enjoy the stops we make along the way.

There is no guarantee that we will see the northern lights on this trip. Even so, it's still a special experience to get out of the city, experience the silence in the mighty valley, and feel how powerful the nature on Svalbard is.
