About

On tour in the midnight sun
Join us for the night version of our Longyearbyen panorama tour: When the snowcat arrives, there won't be any doubt about wheter this is your tour. The guide will welcome you on board, and after a quick briefing you will be ready to head off the beaten track. We will follow the road a little way into the Advent Valley before turning onto the snow, and crossing the wide valley to the mountains on the far side. Here we will find the towering Hiorthfjell, and we will make our way up to the breathtaking viewpoint at "Linken", where we will take a break and enjoy the amazing views towards Longyearbyen while the guide serves warm drinks. 

Learn about Svalbard history
