OFFERS FOR THE SEASON 2021/2022/2023
Everyone has heard about the half-year long polar nights and days. But have you ever wondered what happens when the night loses its power and the day takes its place? This magic moment is called the “blue hours”. It is a very, very short season when light returns into valleys and dyes the whole world blue. The blue hours are the most charming and precious days in Svalbard; most likely because it fades away in the blink of an eye.
Amundsen, Nansen, Nobile… When you read about the expeditions of these (and many other) polar explorers, you always picture a blinding white, deeply silent, untouched wild, and infinitely calm polar desert. It is all true. In your imagination, it can appear to be abandoned as well; which is, however, not true for Svalbard. In the white winter, you will easily encounter living beings hidden in a white coat. White bears, white reindeer, white foxes, white ptarmigans, … the white soul of the Arctic.
MAY, JUNE, JULY, AUGUST
The time of change, the time of an awakening nature. The sun undresses the white gown from the Arctic landscape. Under the white cover, the colorful ground comes to the surface and promises the return of the short and rushing arctic summer. Full of live, full of colours and full of light under the never-setting sun.
Before the winter takes a definite control over the landscape, you can enjoy few weeks of soft and smooth light and hours long orange sunsets. Hill slopes turn to gold and valleys are filled with white cotton-grass heads. The last fledglings are getting ready to leave for southern lands and reindeer feasting as much as possible, before the ground freezes over again. The nature is losing its summer temperament and it is open to kindly share its beauties.
NOVEMBER, DECEMBER, JANUARY
The highlight of the dark season are the magic northern lights, high in the sky. Aurora borealis has the power to steal your mind and bring it to distant worlds of fairy tales and northern sagas. The polar lights, however, come and go when they decide to do so. You cannot force them to stay. On the other hand, different kinds of lights are always present. You can observe billions of stars shining with an ice-cold light in a crystal-clear sky, or you can enjoy a view on a town lit up in a warm, homey light. There, in the northernmost town of the world, a large cup of hot tea is waiting for you after a day out in the nature.
