Spitsbergen Holiday Ideas

Looking for a real taste of the Arctic? There’s no better choice than remote Spitsbergen. Mid way between mainland Norway and the North Pole, Spitsbergen is the largest island in the Svalbard archipelago and home to its major town, Longyearbyen. Two thirds of the archipelago is taken up by national parks and nature reserves making this a perfect destination for wildlife watching. Indeed, Spitsbergen is one of the only places in the world where there are more Polar Bears than people!

If you want to experience this fascinating destination for yourself but are not sure which holiday is the right one for you, you’ll find our simple Spitsbergen Holiday Ideas page, ideal. Each of our holidays in this region is expertly guided by people who know the area, its challenges, treasures and joys. Our Spitsbergen Holiday Ideas page takes you through the various options available to those wanting to visit this mesmerising wilderness, meaning you’ll soon discover the perfect getaway for you.

Snowmobiling and Husky Sledding

If you are a real adventurer at heart, look no further than our Svalbard Arctic Adventure. Three of your four nights here are spent in an authentic replica of a Trapper’s hut, some 10km away from Longyearbyen, with just a kennel of huskies your only neighbours. The highlight of your adventure is an overnight snowmobile safari, through the wilderness. You’ll spend a night in a truly remote yet luxurious holiday base before returning, next day, to the Trapper’s Station from where you’ll set out on a fabulous half day husky safari. When it comes to Spitsbergen Holiday Ideas, this has to be the ultimate Arctic adventure!

Unusual Accommodation

If you’re looking for Spitsbergen Holiday Ideas featuring really different accommodation, how about staying in an authentic replica of a trapper’s hut, far away from your nearest human neighbours and enjoying the true peace and tranquillity of the Arctic? And as if that doesn’t sound exciting enough, mid holiday you’ll set out on an expedition to another amazing place to stay. Your overnight snowmobile safari features an overnight stay at the Ship in the Ice or the Isfjord Radio.

The Isfjord Radio, on the other hand, is a former telecommunications centre whose fabulous levels of luxury and amazing heritage make for a truly unforgettable experience.
