Silversea Cruises invites guests to discover the untamed and untarnished beauty of the Russian Far East and Alaska with a collection of extraordinary voyages. Transporting guests in superlative comfort, the luxurious Silver Muse and Silver Explorer offer a range of fascinating itineraries ranging from 7 to 18 days, departing in 2019 and 2020.
The Russian Far East is one of the earth’s least-explored regions, attracting those who embrace adventure by exploring unusual locations. There are few voyages in the world that offer more geological diversity or such an abundance of exotic wildlife. Silversea’s guests will have the opportunity to witness orca and salmon shark which roam the waters; bears, foxes and wolves which are among the region’s most iconic wildlife; and eagles, hawks and owls which patrol the skies.
Much of the Russian Far East lies along the Ring of Fire, the most volcanic region on Earth. From here, guests will travel from the near-uncharted Sea of Okhotsk, across the Bering Sea and to the waterways, islands and coastal towns of Alaska’s famed Inside Passage. In Russia, they will have the opportunity to discover Kamchatka, a geological wonderland of snowcapped peaks, active volcanoes and bubbling geysers. In Alaska, travellers will admire the haunting beauty of the Arctic ice, hear the roar of calving glaciers, and stand in awe of the ancient coastal forests.
With the cruise line offering one of the highest expedition team-to-guest ratios in the expedition cruising industry, every Silversea Expedition voyage benefits from the presence of 11-28 qualified specialists to help guide guests through every step of their adventure. On board Silver Explorer, daily briefings and lectures are held by professionals hand-picked for their expertise. Plus, all shore excursions are included, guaranteeing close-up encounters with a region’s unique flora and fauna, including the opportunity to hike through forests, trek through tundra, or go Zodiac cruising though ice-choked fjords.
