What to see in Longyearbyen

Longyearbyen, the largest settlement in Norway's Svalbard archipelago, welcomes adventurers to the edge of the Arctic wilderness. Surrounded by rugged mountains and icy fjords, this remote town offers a gateway to polar exploration, with opportunities for wildlife encounters, glacier hikes and aurora hunting beneath the midnight sun.

Longyearbyen serves as an ideal base for wildlife enthusiasts eager to witness the awe-inspiring inhabitants of the Arctic in their natural habitat. Embark on a thrilling expedition to observe polar bears, Arctic foxes, reindeer and a myriad of bird species as they roam across the vast tundra and icy landscapes of Svalbard. Join a guided wildlife safari led by experienced local guides who will take you on an unforgettable journey through the Arctic wilderness, where you'll have the opportunity to spot wildlife from the safety of specialised vehicles or snowmobiles. Traverse rugged terrain, cross frozen fjords and venture into remote valleys and coastal cliffs, keeping a watchful eye out for signs of wildlife along the way.

Longyearbyen offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to embark on thrilling glacier hikes and Arctic adventures amidst some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth. Lace up your hiking boots and join a guided glacier trek to explore the icy wonders of Svalbard's majestic glaciers, including the iconic Austfonna, Nordenskiöldbreen and Longyearbreen glaciers. Follow experienced guides as you navigate across crevassed ice fields, traverse icy ridges and ascend to panoramic viewpoints overlooking the vast expanse of the Arctic wilderness. Learn about the unique geology, glaciology and ecology of the region, as well as the challenges and rewards of exploring the Arctic environment.

Longyearbyen offers unparalleled opportunities for witnessing the celestial wonders of the Arctic sky, including the mesmerising Northern Lights and the ethereal glow of the midnight sun. Visit during the winter months to experience the magic of the Aurora Borealis as it dances across the night sky in a dazzling display of colours and shapes. Join a guided Northern Lights tour led by knowledgeable local guides who will take you to prime viewing spots away from the town's artificial lights, where you can witness the Aurora in all its glory.
