Discovered (by the Western world) on Easter Sunday, 1722, Easter Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most isolated places on the face of the Earth, some 2,300 miles from the Chilean mainland. Although more Polynesian than South American in character, the 64-square mile island was annexed by Chile in 1888, and is now famous as the world’s largest ‘open air museum’ on account of the Moai, or human-like stone statues, that can be found on the island.

Isla Sala y Gomez is a small uninhabited Chilean island located 415 kilometres east of Easter Island; it is the easternmost point in the Polynesian Triangle. The island was discovered by Jose Salas in 1793 and explored by Jose Manuel Gomez in 1805; owing its name to both of these Spanish sailors with the last name of Salas misspelled. In 1888 the island was claimed by Chile. In 2010 the Chilean government announced the creation of the Marine Protected Area, Sala y Gomez Marine Park.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Alejandro Selkirk Island is part of the Juan Fernandez archipelago. The island itself was renamed in 1966 after the marooned sailor who served as the template for Daniel Defoe’s novel Robinson Crusoe, although Alejandro Selkirk was a castaway on a different island, named Robinson Crusoe Island. Alejandro Selkirk is located 165 kilometres west of the other islands in the archipelago. Throughout much of its history, the island has been uninhabited, although there is a former penal settlement on the middle of the east coast, which operated from 1909 to 1930.
Robinson Crusoe Island is located 600 kilometres off the coast of Chile. The island is a rugged volcanic speck where 70 percent of its plant species are endemic, and is the largest of the Juan Fernandez Islands, a small archipelago that since 1935 is a Chilean National Park which was declared a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. This island has witnessed and played an important role in Chilean and world history. In 1750 the village of San Juan Bautista was founded at Cumberland Bay and by 1779 there were already 7 fortresses bristling with guns.

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Valparaíso's dramatic topography—45 cerros, or hills, overlooking the ocean—requires the use of winding pathways and wooden ascensores (funiculars) to get up many of the grades. The slopes are covered by candy-color houses—there are almost no apartments in the city—most of which have exteriors of corrugated metal peeled from shipping containers decades ago. Valparaíso has served as Santiago's port for centuries. Before the Panama Canal opened, Valparaíso was the busiest port in South America.

Reisehighlights

Day 1 — Easter Island, Chile
Embark the Silver Explorer and depart on your exciting Silversea Expedition — “In Search of Robinson Crusoe”.

Once you have settled in and before Silver Explorer leaves Easter Island, you will attend a mandatory safety drill. Join us for a Sail Away Cocktail on the outer decks as we sail along Easter Island’s impressive cliffs and shore. Later you will be introduced to your Expedition Team. This evening the Restaurant Manager and Executive Chef would like to invite you to the delights of a specially prepared menu in The Restaurant.

Day 2 — Isla Salas y Gomez
Heading in a east-northeasterly direction we will approach Salas y Gomez around noon. This will give you time to unwind after the long flight to Easter Island, have a leisurely breakfast and then join one of our onboard experts for a lecture in the Explorer Lounge.

In the afternoon we will take to our Zodiacs to circumnavigate the island and some of the submerged rocks. In terms of wildlife we can expect to see Christmas Shearwater, Brown Noddies, Masked Boobies, as well as Great Frigatebirds and Sooty Terns –the last two of prime importance to Easter Island’s socio-religious birdman cult.

Days 3-6 —At sea
Having left Salas y Gomez behind, Silver Explorer will have to cover more than 1300 miles to reach the nearest land to the east.

During our days at sea we will be looking for large schools of dolphins, the occasional seabirds and perhaps some of the humpback whales that have been observed off the coasts of Easter Island and Chile.

Our lecturers will present talks about Chile, its natural history and obviously topics related to our next destination, the Juan Fernandez Archipelago. Attend workshops and seminars, relax, enjoy the solitude of the open ocean, and sample the culinary specialities prepared by our Executive Chef and his team.
 
Day 7 —Alexander Selkirk, Juan Fernandez Archipelago, Chile
Today we reach one of the most isolated islands of Chile. Formerly called “Más Afuera” -which clearly stated that is was “further away”- it received the name of Alexander Selkirk in 1966 to entice tourism to the archipelago, but not to the island. Alexander Selkirk is only sporadically used by fishermen from Robinson Crusoe to harvest spiny lobster. There is a small group of buildings on the island’s eastern shore, but landing is conditioned by swell.

We will use the Zodiacs for a cruise along the shore, looking for the feral goats that were left in the archipelago already in the 16th century, and the Juan Fernandez fur seal colonies on the western coast. If possible we will go ashore near one of the colonies.

Day 8 — Robinson Crusoe, Juan Fernandez Archipelago, Chile
Silver Explorer will anchor in Cumberland Bay, not too far from the main settlement and only village of Robinson Crusoe. Formerly called “Mas a Tierra” (closer to land) the island’s name was changed to Robinson Crusoe, Daniel Defoe’s famous literary character, hoping to attract more tourism in 1966.
The island has several historical facts that make it interesting: from its discovery by Juan Fernandez, to its use as a provisioning stop for pirates and explorers alike, a penal colony during the Chilean independence movement, its various schemes of exploitation, the connection to World War I, and finally the several tsunamis that have caused the current village to be redesigned for safety.

We will land at San Juan Bautista in Cumberland Bay to offer several walks and hikes to various lookout points –including Alexander Selkirk’s viewpoint- and to look for the endemic plants and birds that have put Juan Fernandez on the list of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves and the tentative UNESCO World Heritage list. Heading up to the Plazoleta El Yunque (the anvil), we will hike through pine, cypress and eucalyptus forests, but will also be able to see many of the local plants and the Juan Fernandez Firecrown.

Both hikes to the viewpoints offer different views of Cumberland Bay and the surrounding landscape, but from Selkirk’s lookout you can also see the barren eastern side of Robinson Crusoe with the small island of Santa Clara in the background.

An easy walk will lead to the cliff where the projectiles shot at the German light cruiser SMS Dresden during WWI can still be seen. During this walk it is normally possible to see the Juan Fernandez fur seals in the water, while hummingbirds might frequent the shrubs and flowers near the cemetery.

Day 9 — At sea
Our last day of the voyage can be used to edit the photos taken, to attend a lecture -perhaps about Valparaiso, its historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Chile’s modern history- or visit the Spa and Fitness Centre, you can also relax on the Sun Deck after yesterday’s walks and hikes.

Do not miss the presentation of the documentary of our voyage by the onboard Videographer.

In the evening the Captain would like to invite you to the Farewell Cocktail and the Farewell Dinner,
                                         
Day 10 —Valparaiso, Chile
While Silver Explorer approaches Valparaiso, take in the sights of “The Pearl of the Pacific” –as the city is known in Chile’s literature and music. Valparaiso’s historic hillside settlements (including the still used funiculars) have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After breakfast disembark Silver Explorer.
