Spitsbergen is the largest and only permanently populated island in Norway's remote Svalbard archipelago. Lying just 620 miles from the North Pole, it's one of the most isolated places on earth and almost certainly the most reliable when it comes to spotting polar bears, and for that matter, the Northern Lights. Take all in on this tailor-made break, which includes a half-day husky safari and a stay at the stunning Funken Lodge, Longyearbyen's finest hotel.

Please note: Funken Lodge will be closed for maintenance between 03-23 January 2020. For travel during these dates, your stay will be at the Radisson Blu Polar.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Fly to Svalbard

Fly from the UK, via Oslo, to Longyearbyen, Svalbard’s largest town. Located on the island of Spitsbergen, its surrounding Arctic landscapes are some of Scandinavia’s most desolate and beautiful. You’ll spend three nights at the newly renovated Funken Lodge, the best in town, which offers stylish interiors, superb dining and views over the neighbouring Lars Glacier. 

Stay: Funken Lodge, Spitsbergen (Superior)

Meals: B

Days 2-3
Explore Spitsbergen

Over two memorable days you’ll have the opportunity to head out on a series of optional excursions, which range from exhilarating snowmobiling and ice caving tours to more sedate activities such as champagne tasting, a surprising addition to this remote corner of the world. To help you make the most of your stay, we’ve included a thrilling husky safari, taking you out into the polar night to speed past snow-clad mountain ranges and vast ice fields to hopefully catch sight of the Northern Lights.

Stay: Funken Lodge, Spitsbergen (Superior)

Day 4

Make your way to the airport, where you’ll board a flight to the UK via Oslo.
