From its famed glaciers and evergreen forests, to its jagged peaks and peaceful fjords, Alaska is breathtakingly beautiful, with fascinating cultures and hypnotising array of creatures.

Once considered the last frontier, Alaska serves up some incredible encounters with the natural world, all of which can be enjoyed from the supreme comfort of the newest addition to Silversea's expedition vessels, the beautifully-appointed Silver Discoverer, complete with its own fleet of Zodiacs to get you straight to the beating heart of the region.

In a wild country where bears scoop salmon out of rushing rivers perched on the edge of endless forests, the Untouched Alaska expedition journeys south to the more untamed areas of the State of Alaska, and, to some extent, retraces the route of the famous Harriman Expedition of 1899 – one of the first Expedition Cruises done in this (and any other) area.

Throughout your journey, experts and specialists from a variety of fields will accompany you; their specialised knowledge adding another superb dimension to your voyage, leading your group with briefings, lectures and excursions through otherwise-inaccessible spots on this incredible adventure along the Alaska Peninsula.

Explore the national parks and their glaciers. Take a spectacular Zodiac cruise, searching for some of the emblematic animals of Alaska: bald eagles, tufted puffins, steller sea lion, sea otters, humpback whales and hundreds of thousands of birds. ​Watch eagles soar over snow-capped mountain ranges, seals diving into the depths and glaciers calving into the sea.​ Or see things from a completely different perspective and take an optional flightseeing excursion to see the mighty Hubbard Glacier – the longest glacier in North America – from above.

Perhaps most compelling, though, will be your experience of this State's culture, and a visit to First Nation communities where you'll delve deeper into their fascinating traditions, visit their longhouses and enjoy an afternoon of sacred songs and dances.
