As we leave Longyearbyen behind, we will drive into one of the many side-valleys and away from the light pollution of the settlements. Here we get the chance to experience the magical lights in an untouched arctic landscape. On the way, we might visit our traditional Gamme for some warmt and a hot drink while we wait.
