After about two hours sailing under the stars, the very same stars our Arctic heroes used to navigate, we'll arrive in Barentsburg, the main Russian settlement in Svalbard. You tour tour guide will walk you through the streets and share stories of life in Barentsburg in the past. There will be an opportunity to visit the local hotel, the local brewery, and the souvenir shop, where unique Christmas presents from the top of the world can be purchased. On your trip back to Longyearbyen, you'll get a second chance to look for the northern lights. Svalbard is the only safe place in the world where you can experience the northern lights during daytime, and if you see them, you'll find that the daytime aurora is more red than during night-time sightings.
