Northern lights
short trips and several day packages

 With Basecamp you can choose between short day or half day trips hunting for northern lights, or packages including several nights at our hotels and lodges. Experience northern lights between October and March. During the darkest time of the year, from November to January, even the daytime sky is so dark that you will see the northern lights.

When experiencing the darkest season of the year some visitors’ states that the Arctic silence is a cosmos of colours. We leave the town of Longyearbyen behind and search for the mighty Northern light out in the wilderness. In company with eager huskies and competent guides. Sleep well at the cosy and rustic Basecamp Hotel in Longyearbyen.
