Cultural immersion into the old-world charm of the iconic Mediterranean –Recent booking data affirms that Silversea cruisers worldwide are attracted to the Mediterranean. The region offers small ports and iconic cities, as well as world-renowned food and UNESCO-listed World Heritage Sites.
Exploration of imposing landscapes and ancient history in Northern Europe & the British Isles – Northern Europe offers something for every curious traveler. The British Isles is home to ancient castles, soaring cathedrals, and landscaped gardens, while the Baltic Sea is awash with charming rustic towns, iconic museums, and fabled fjords. Guests will relive the sixties with a stroll down Liverpool’s Penny Lane; sail along the same coastlines as the Vikings did almost a thousand years ago; and discover the imperial heritage of St. Petersburg with its iconic Hermitage Museum, gilded palaces, and ornate churches.
Back to Mother Nature in pristine Alaska – Head to Alaska — The Great Land — if you’ve been dreaming of a vacation steeped in natural beauty. Beyond the rustic frontier towns, elaborate totem poles, and onion-domed Russian churches, America’s 49th state is home to a dramatic landscape of mountains, forests, glaciers, and fjords. Hike along Tongass National Park’s Mendenhall Glacier for spectacular vistas, climb the smooth granite walls of the White Pass for stunning views of Skagway River or take in the majesty of Misty Fjords from above during a floatplane tour.
Polar exploration on the journey of a lifetime to Antarctica – The White Continent is a must-visit destination if you consider yourself an adventure seeker or nature lover. Antarctica beckons with towering icebergs, mighty glaciers and abundant wildlife. Penguins, seals, whales, and seabirds reign supreme in this frozen paradise. Here, you can hike volcanic shores dotted with snow and penguins, or paddle through mazes of floating ice in a kayak. And if you’re feeling adventurous, take a dip in the chilly waters of Deception Island, a volcanic caldera near the Antarctic Peninsula.
A wildlife-rich expedition in the Galápagos aboard new ship Silver Origin – Few places on Earth rival the Galápagos Islands for their ecological diversity. Situated at the intersection of three Pacific Ocean currents, this archipelago of 19 islands and numerous islets beguiles with pristine landscapes and incredible wildlife. From feisty lava lizards, sun-basking marine iguanas, and lumbering giant tortoises to playful sea lions and the only penguin species found north of the equator, the archipelago is a treasure trove of unique creatures. If you’re seeking transformative adventure, look no farther.
Experiencing a truly remote wilderness in the Kimberley, Australia – One of the world’s last remaining authentic wildernesses, the Kimberley is tucked in the northern region of Western Australia. This rugged and rarely visited frontier is home to remarkable wildlife, spectacular canyons, and ancient rock art that conjures a sense of mystery. In this dramatic landscape, take a scenic flight over the breathtaking Bungle Bungle Range, speed through the waters of the phenomenal Horizontal Falls by Zodiac, and explore the Hunter River region.
