Whether it’s the wildlife, scenery, or people you remember most, Africa is out on its own for sheer scale, variety and dramatic impact. It’s an extraordinary place that will entice you back again and again, from the elegance and charm of Cape Town to the primal attractions of the Serengeti and the impossibly-perfect beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean.
With its gleaming towers rising out of the desert, constantly sun-drenched beaches, world-beating designer shopping and fabulous hotels, the UAE serves up the very last word in urbane glamour, while Oman is a stylish and sophisticated choice for those looking to enjoy the very best Arabia has to offer.
How can you begin to sum up Asia? Mysterious, majestic, surprising, spiritual, energetic, enticing… it’s all those and more. A trip here is a true voyage of discovery, not least because its cultures and history have been hidden to Western eyes for too long, and with so much to explore, you’ll be back time and again.
Explore, cherish and fall in love with Australia, the world’s largest island; the epic countryside and adrenaline-junkie Eden of New Zealand, or the spectacularly laid-back islands of French Polynesia – which bring to life just how dreamy reality can get.
Hunker down by translucent shores and shady palms to breathe in jasmine and hibiscus and watch the hovering of miracle-winged hummingbirds. Why not explore the stunning tiny islands of the Caribbean?
From the sun-kissed Mediterranean to sophisticated cities, Europe’s diversity is without equal. Its converted castles, restored monasteries, refurbished palaces and rolling landscapes are all testimony to its fascinating history, whilst the gourmet cuisine, vintage wines and glamorous nightlife reflect the continent’s irrepressible joie de vivre.
Choose from idyllic islands adrift in the Indian Ocean, seducing you with overwater villas, underwater reefs, iridescent white sands, swaying sugar cane and cerulean oceans; or the magnificence of the Indian Subcontinent’s temples, Buddhist Kingdoms and beaches throughout Sri Lanka – all serving up a feast for senses as well as the soul.
Straddling the two Poles and encompassing myriad landscapes and cultures, The Americas offer an almost tireless treasure trove of experiences for travellers, from the remains of ancient civilizations in South America to the gleaming cities of Canada and the US, peppered amongst ever-changing landscapes which define majesty.
Remote & Remarkable Destinations
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.
