Noorderlicht, Longyearbyen


Noorderlicht, Longyearbyen, Arctic

Our rating: Simple

This two-mastered schooner offers an evocative option for exploring the Arctic. Built in 1910, the Noorderlicht has spent much of her life inside the Arctic Circle. With space for just 20 passengers in small berths with shared bathrooms, a trip aboard the Noorderlicht gives a highly personal polar sailing experience. During the Arctic winter the boat is frozen into the ice in Spitsbergen and operates as a hotel, giving travellers an amazing opportunity to experience the polar winter and, with luck, the northern lights.
