Pure Spitsbergen

Witness the elusive Northern Lights and explore Spitsbergen on land during a 4- or 5- night, flight-inclusive package from London

Svalbard is as close to the North Pole as most of us can hope to get. Travelling this far north has up until recently only been achievable by sea, but now more and more people can fly to this magical polar archipelago from mainland Norway - and now from London Heathrow as part of our 4- or 5- night Spitsbergen package. 

Explore modern Longyearbean and the untouched Polar wilderness during the winter, where the darkness is magical and the Northern Lights explode in the sky. During October to March you can watch the fascinating Aurora Borealis from the comfort of your preferred accommodation, a cabin or hotel. From mid-November to the end of January there's no daylight, making Svalbard the only place in the world where you can experience the Northern Lights on land during the day time, as well as night! 

Experience Spitsbergen your own way, with a range of winter shore excursions that are not available on our regular voyages. Please see below for the full list of exciting excursions available.
