The times of sunrise and sunset in Svalbard are significantly influenced by the country's very northern position in the hemisphere. Relatively high in the north the days in summer are long and short in winter. With up to approximately 21:10 hours the longest days happen in August. On the other hand, the longest and darkest nights are in winter (in the southern hemisphere it is the other way around). In Dezember a night in Longyearbyen lasts almost 24 hours.
Who wants to look at the sunrise in these days, has to wake up early. Sunrise in Longyearbyen starts already at 1:00 in the morning. The early sunset at 1:00 makes the day currently a bit too short.Back to overview: Svalbard
