Where will Firebird visit?
The Lofoten archipelago is located 95 miles north of the Arctic Circle and is known for its unparalleled beauty of dramatic mountains and peaks, arctic fjords and untouched lands. Renowned for painted fishing villages which line the waterfront of the Norwegian group of islands, this is one of the most picturesque places on earth. With the opportunity to spot Orcas and Puffins, this is definitely a spot to practice your photography skills!
From early May, you can experience 24 hours of sunlight, where the sun sits so low in the sky forming a magical yellow glow across the coastline, allowing you to witness the natural phenomenon of the ‘midnight sun’. Such an impressive sight, even the locals mark the occasion in their calendars.
With crystal clear waters as blue as the Mediterranean in the summer months, visitors explore their enchanting surroundings by kayaking, snorkelling, fishing and surfing. The breathtaking sandy beaches are also a hot spot for visitors – there really is something for everyone.
Located halfway between Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard is one of Norway’s most magical group of islands. With more polar bears than people, Svalbard is an untouched arctic wilderness rich in wildlife and with barely any sign of human intervention. From May to September, Svalbard affords visitors to 24 hours of sunlight with its mild polar summer. During this period, the ice melts enough for Firebird to navigate through the still icy waters and explore the spectacular fjords and wildlife.
Following the long winter months, the archipelago is inundated by birds as they migrate in large numbers to nest. When visiting Svalbard, sightseers are treated to the incredible diversity of species the islands offer, including walruses, seals and white whales along with year-round mammals such as polar bears, polar foxes and Svalbard reindeer.
Certified a Sustainable Destination, Svalbard consists of several nature reserves, national parks and bird sanctuaries – offering something for everyone. Whether an epic expedition is on the cards, or to simply explore the wilderness, Svalbard is one of the most spectacular and well-preserved natural areas to visit.
