Svalbard at a Glance (+ Practical Info!)

Svalbard is actually a group of islands up north, not one specific island. So, when we refer to Svalbard, we are discussing the entire area, but we really are mainly focusing on Spitsbergen (the main island) and the main town on it, Longyearbyen.

There are technically three seasons on Svalbard:

  • Polar summer (May 17-Sept 30)
  • Northern Lights winter (Oct 1-Feb 28)
  • Sunny winter (Mar 1-May 16)

Each of these months has a distinct climate and weather associated with it, and the daylight varies throughout.

Here are a few notes on the daylight situation in Svalbard:

  • Polar night (no sunrises; November 11-January 30)
  • Midnight sun (no sunsets; April 20-August 23)

The closer you get to the summer or winter solstice, the more drastic the daylight situation will be. For example, I was in Svalbard recently ON the summer solstice, and the sun was hovering high up in the sky 24 hours a day.

If you’re there on April 20, for example, the sun never sets, but it does hover lower over the horizon, still giving a feeling of ‘dusk’.

With that being said, there are different tours associated with the different seasons of Svalbard. And yes, you need to book tours to see anything outside of Longyearbyen. There is no other option.

Below are the top tours and things to do in each season on Svalbard.

Polar Summer (May 17 – September 30)

This season is when the days are long and the majority of people visit (thanks to cruise ship passengers). Cruise ships tend to arrive on Sundays, so book all tours ahead so you can ensure availability!

In the polar summer, you can take a few land tours, but a lot of the offerings are on a boat! It is walrus season (and the sea is teeming with whales and other wildlife).

Here are some of my favorite polar summer tours:

Northern Lights Winter (October 1 – February 28)

To be honest, this season is when there is the most opportunity for tourism growth in Svalbard. It is no longer boat season, but not quite snowmobile season.

I think this season is great for exploring Longyearbyen’s great culinary scene as well as enjoying some northern lights tours.

If you go at the end of the northern lights winter, you will find a plethora of snowmobiling options! So, February in Svalbard is kind of the perfect month to visit!

Here are some of the top tours to take during the Northern Lights winter:

Sunny Winter (March 1 – May 16)

Svalbard is technically a polar desert, and it really shows during this season!

From the beginning of March until mid-May, you will experience sun and plenty to do on the snow since polar nights are over!

Snowmobiling is the go-to activity during this time, and here are some of the top tours:

We hope that this section helped you understand how tourism in Svalbard works a little and how every season has its own appeal (and reasons to visit)!

In our guide below, we list some of our favorite tours throughout the year (and their seasonality and duration), as well as some of our must-visit places in Longyearbyen.

This will hopefully help each traveler find an array of things to do, no matter which season they visit!

Best Things to Do in Svalbard (and Longyearbyen)

1. Spot Wildlife and Glaciers on a Boat Trip

Season: May-September
Duration: 5 hours

Experiencing Svalbard’s awe-inspiring nature, wildlife, and glaciers during a thrilling boat trip is one of the best things to do on Svalbard.

This boating adventure aboard the closed and heated RIB boats allows you to take in the Arctic wilderness and explore the beautiful Isfjord under the magical evening light of the Midnight Sun.

You’ll be served a homemade hot bowl of soup as you pass breathtaking glacier fronts in the northern part of Isfjorden and admire Svalbard’s mineral and biological wonders from the comforts of your seat, no matter the weather.

Spotting polar bears and seals sunbathing on the ice, humpback whales and blue whales having fun in the water, and Atlantic puffins on the cliffs are among the highlights of this exciting trip.

Between May and August, you will stop at one of the cliffs near the fjord used by Svalbard’s seabirds as a nesting spot. Don’t forget to bring your camera, binoculars, gloves, seasonal clothing, and winter shoes.

Unleash your inner adventurer by taking part in this fun snowmobiling excursion to an ice cave near Tellbreen. Experiencing Svalbard’s fascinating glaciers inside and out promises a one-of-a-kind experience.

Then head towards Tellbreen, where you can explore one of Svalbard’s stunning ice caves. Please note that the temperature here is around -3°C (27°F), with no natural light penetrating the thick ice walls, making it a mysterious space to discover.

Using your headlamps, you and your friendly guide will explore the enormous ice masses to uncover the magical crystals.

After fully exploring the cave, you’ll make your way back onto the snowmobiles along the Arctic landscape. You’ll be served lunch, hot drinks, and snacks along the way.

3. Go on a Speedboat Tour to a Walrus Colony

Season: May-August
Duration: 5 hours

I am not sure what I expected when I booked this, but it exceeded my expectations (and then some!). This speedboat tour will take you to the famous walrus colony on Svalbard!

It is merely a 5-hour trip, and you will be on a covered RIB boat with others (we had maybe 10-12 on my boat). You will not only get to see the walrus colony (which was so cool!) but you will also get to see more than one glacier!

This trip left from the harbor (but offered pickup from hotels), and once on the boat, you will cross the Isfjord over to the colony. Once there, you’ll have a chance to wander the back of the boat, where you can photograph the walruses and hear them in the distance.

Some of the walruses even swam quite close to our boat, which was cool! After, we headed to a different glacier and enjoyed sandwiches for lunch. There were also drinks on board.

You have a chance to see glaciers calving as well as other animals like whales, Atlantic puffins, and more! It was money well spent!

4. Savor the Tasting Menu at Huset Restaurant

Very rarely does a certain meal end up being the highlight of a trip for me, but Huset managed to do so!

This restaurant is Longyearbyen’s best fine dining experience and it has been open for nearly half a century, offering local fare to patrons from all over the globe.

You must reserve a table in advance; trust me on this. When there, you will have a chance to experience local ingredients (and Arctic ingredients from the North of the Nordics) in an array of small dishes, each one different from the next.

It was a true experience—every dish came out with attention to detail, and every single piece of every single ingredient was used, creating no waste whatsoever.

While the food was remarkable, it is worth noting that Huset has one of Scandinavia’s most extensive wine cellars (with over 15,000 bottles!). It has won awards over the years, and the sommelier paired every dish of mine with the most beautiful glass of wine.

Huset will set your food budget back a bit, but it is not every day you can have such a unique dining experience in such a remote part of the world!

13. Visit the Mining Ghost Town of Pyramiden

Pyramiden, a mining ghost town founded by Sweden in 1910 and later sold to the Soviet Union in 1927, is a must-see for history buffs.

Once, it housed over 1,000 people during the ’80s, but now all you can see are signs of the mining industry, buildings, streets, and industrial structures without a living soul.

You can still see cups left on tables, newspaper cuttings on the walls, and skiing equipment left in the hallways to this day.


Developed according to Soviet ideas of an ideal society, it once featured a petrol station, greenhouse, farm, school, kindergarten, hotel, restaurant, etc.

The centerpiece of the Pyramiden is the bust of Lenin, surrounded by still-growing grass that was once imported all the way from Siberia and offering stunning views of the beautiful glacier Nordenskiöldbreen in the background.

After 53 years of operation, Trust Arktikugol, the Russian state-owned mining company, closed down Pyramiden’s mining operations in April 1998.

If you are looking to take a trip to Pyramiden, I recommend going with Henningsen Transport. I had previous issues with them in 2014, but I tried them out again in 2023 (two times), and it was fantastic!

14. Take a Tour of the World’s Northernmost Brewery

Indulge your taste buds with the world’s only pure Norwegian Arctic beer at the Svalbard Brewery at the top of the world!

Their standard Spitsbergen classic beers range from weissbier and stout to pale ale and IPA. They also brew local specialties for special seasons, cultural events, and traditional feasts.

You can find Svalbard Brewery everywhere in Longyearbyen!

15. Enjoy Coffee (and Cuddles!) at Cafe Huskies

Hanging out with cute huskies at Cafe Huskies is one of the best things to do in the world’s northernmost town.

Stepping inside to sip chai lattes and enjoy delicious pastry in the company of fluffy huskies is the perfect way to escape from the freezing weather.

A rotating crew of local pets that belong to staffers, friends, and other residents “work” here several shifts a week. These fluffy creatures go back home to their owners after the day is done.

Hop aboard a snowmobile to get through the ravines of Eskerdalen and Sassendalen and the glacier of Rabotbreen across endless white ice valleys to experience a jaw-dropping Arctic landscape.

17. Hike Up Platåfjellet for Amazing Views 

Thrill seekers can hike up Platåfjellet at 424 meters above sea level, which will reward them with mesmerizing views over Longyearbyen, the Advent Valley, and surrounding mountains.

This is the perfect activity for those who are after a refreshing experience just a stone’s throw from town. You’ll hike during the twilight and dark seasons, which makes this experience even more magical.

Lucky ones can even witness the Northern Lights above them. Hike to a stone monument, and then continue higher if the weather allows it.

Platåfjellet views

On your way up, listen to amazing stories about Longyearbyen and the people who have worked there, and learn about how Longyearbyen eventually returned to Norwegian ownership.

Once you reach the summit, you will enjoy warm drinks, cookies, and nuts.

Please note that this mountain hike in cold weather is considered moderately difficult and can be steep at some points, but the final views are well worth the effort.

19. Zoom Through Valleys and Mountains to Tempelfjorden

Season: February-May
Duration: 8 hours

Experience a thrill as you snowmobile through valleys, tall mountains, and frozen rivers to Tempelfjorden and retrace the steps of the legendary trapper, Hilmas Nøis, who spent over 30 winters in the Arctic.

Traversing along the coastline, you may even witness some majestic seals.
