Nome is located on the edge of the Bering Sea, on the southwest side of the Seward Peninsula. Unlike other towns which are named for explorers, heroes or politicians, Nome was named as a result of a 50 year-old spelling error. In the 1850's an officer on a British ship off the coast of Alaska noted on a manuscript map that a nearby prominent point was not identified. He wrote "? Name" next to the point.
Provideniya is a former Soviet military port at the southern limit of the Arctic ice pack. With slightly less than 2000 inhabitants, many of whom are Yupik, it is the largest town and administrative center of the Providensky District. Started as a depot for the Northeast Passage traffic, it now is a port of entry to the Russian Far East and since the decline of the Soviet Union eco-tourism has boosted the local economy. The town has a Technical School and a fascinating museum with interesting and well-presented exhibits about the natural history and wildlife of the region.
To the Proliv Senyavina Hot Springs. We will go ashore by Zodiac, will enter a small lagoon and hike across tundra and some rolling hills to reach a stream with some hot springs. You can choose to either enter a small pool prepared by the local fishermen, or to go into the stream.
Yttygran offers a unique natural history experience on this voyage. An array of bowhead whale bones and rock arrangements is stunning – it is a place of great archaeological importance combined with natural beauty. An early morning landing will add to the magic and mystery of the place due to the soft hues and the muffled light conditions. For the more energetic passengers a hike up the steep nearby hill provides an excellent leg stretch.
Like bookends, towering cliffs composed of light-colored granite and streaked by darker rock stand on each side of a large sheltered bay in the spectacular scenery of Cape Kuyvyveen. The sandy beach lies at the head of the bay with rolling tundra behind. The sheer granite rocks, distinct basalt caves and arches of the cape are home to thousands of Tufted Puffins that nest in rocky crevasses. Despite the cliffs on either side of the bay being quite close together, the adjacent terrains are slightly different and each attracts different species of birds.
Hall Island is one of the most remote islands in Alaska. Every summer this small rock island, in the middle of the Bering Sea, comes alive as about a million seabirds gather to breed and nest. They cling shoulder to shoulder on every available rock ledge. The most common seabirds include blacklegged kittiwakes, common and thick-billed murres, auklets, cormorants and northern fulmars
St. Matthew Island is an extremely remote island in the middle of the Bering Sea, more than 200 miles from the nearest Alaska village. Even by Alaskan standards it is a lonely place. At the most southerly point of the 32 mile long island, at Cape Upright, the black sand and gravel beaches give way to massive sea cliffs that exceed heights of over 1000 ft. These are home to countless nesting murres, kittiwakes, cormorants and other sea birds. In fact, reports of the island’s wildlife by the Harriman Expedition in 1899 convinced Teddy Roosevelt to include St.
The city of Saint Paul is located on a narrow peninsula on the southern tip of St. Paul Island, the largest of five islands in the Pribilofs. These islands are located in the middle of the Bering Sea between the United States and Russia. St Paul’s lies 240 miles north of the Aleutian Islands, 300 miles west of the Alaska mainland, and 750 air miles west of Anchorage. The city of St. Paul is the only residential area on the island. The first non-natives to ‘discover’ St. Paul were Russian fur-traders in the late 1780’s, led by the navigator, Gavriil Pribylov.
The crumpled peaks, and tranquil scenery, of Dutch Harbor belies its history as one of the few places on American soil to have been directly attacked by the Japanese - who bombed the significant US military base here during the Second World War. Located on a string of islands, which loops down into the Pacific from Alaska, a visit to this Aleutian Island destination offers comprehensive military history, and extraordinary ocean scenery. Hike the volcanic, gloriously green landscapes, and look out for wonderful wildlife, like bald eagles, as they survey the surroundings.

The Aleutian island of Unga holds an ancient petrified wood forest and a more recent ghost town that was the site of a small gold rush in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The village was eventually abandoned in the 1960’s and now has a somewhat somber appearance. Many of the houses have collapsed and are overgrown with brilliant fuchsia fireweed wildflowers. From a distance the church looks intact, but up closer it is apparent that the roof is standing on the ground, and the walls have completely collapsed.
Castle Bay lies immediately west of Tuliumnit or Castle Point. The rugged sandstone tower and pinnacle formations give the point and the bay their names. The bay is several miles long with a entrance about two mile wide
Larsen Bay is one of the hotspots of commercial and sports fishing on Kodiak Island’s western side. The village of Larsen Bay is home to one of the oldest standing canneries on Kodiak Island. Situated in a scenic valley at the mouth of a narrow fjord, the small village of Larsen Bay lies within Kodiak Island’s National Wildlife Refuge -which covers the southwestern part of Kodiak Island- and is the starting point for scenic flights over the mountainous island.
The Chiswell Islands are part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, and deservedly so. Small bays, inlets and sea cliffs are populated by innumerable seabirds including Black-legged Kittiwakes, Pelagic Cormorants, Horned and Tufted Puffins, as wells as guillemots, auklets and murrelets. The Chiswell Islands are blessed with towering cliffs and sea caves offering up spectacular scenery and a Steller sea lion rookery that bustles as the marine mammals commute to feeding grounds, socialize, and care for their pups.
Kenai Fjords National Park’s famous Holgate Glacier is a spectacularly active river of ice. The surrounding glaciated landscape paints a dramatic portrait of the rugged mountains in contrast to the cold blue ice of the glacier. On approach, the waters leading up to Holgate Glacier may be peppered with bits of ice and the crackling noise of ancient air bubbles being released from small bergs. Periodically loud cannon-like blasts emanate from the glacier, and some are accompanied by calving events off the ice front.
It is hard to believe that a place as beautiful as Seward exists. Surrounded on all sides by Kenai Fjords National Park, Chugach National Forest, and Resurrection Bay, Seward offers all the quaint realities of a small railroad town with the bonus of jaw-dropping scenery. This little town of about 2,750 citizens was founded in 1903, when survey crews arrived at the ice-free port and began planning a railroad to the Interior. Since its inception, Seward has relied heavily on tourism and commercial fishing.

puntos esenciales del viaje

Day 1 — Nome, Alaska, USA                         
Once all guests have embarked, you will partake in a mandatory safety drill. Join us at a Sail Away cocktail party as we depart on our spectacular expedition: “Islands of the Bering Sea and Alaskan Peninsula”. During the afternoon you will be introduced to important members of the crew and your Expedition Team. We invite you to familiarize yourself with your new home away from home and meet some of your fellow travellers. In the evening enjoy the first of many memorable meals in The Restaurant.
                                                                                               
Day 2 — Provideniya, Russia                        
A leisurely morning at sea is yours to enjoy. Begin perhaps with a late breakfast and another cup of coffee or tea during the first of the day’s lectures preparing you for Chukotka and the Russian Far East. Join the lecturers and hear fascinating tales of adventure and learn more about the region’s wildlife and remarkable nature.

During the late morning we will be approaching Provideniya. After lunch, we will start our walking tour of this former military outpost. Many of the houses have been abandoned, but those inhabitants that stayed behind seem to be optimistic that Provideniya will once again be an important port –most probably for the Northeast Passage. We will have a look at the very well-presented collections of the local museum, and will be entertained by local and Russian songs and dances. For those inclined to more hiking, you can leave the town towards the south in direction of the cemetery accompanied by our Expedition Staff.

A Zodiac cruise and visit to Plover Bay might follow in the late afternoon.
                                                                                                                                                        
Day 3 – Proliv Senyavina and Yttygran Island, Chukotka, Russia
Proliv Senyavina promises a nice tundra hike to reach some hot springs located inland. Fishermen have set up a base on the shore and use a specially prepared area once in a while. We will hike to the hot springs and take a relaxing dip.

During lunch and the early afternoon we cruise the Bering Sea to reach Yttygran Island. On the northern shore of this island is the famous “Whalebone Alley” –an area with large numbers of carefully arranged skulls and whalebones. It is not only on land that we can see evidence of whales; grey whales are known to roam the seas around Yttygran and we might spot them during our approach or after our departure.

Day 4 – Kuyvyveen and Provideniya, Chukotka, Russia                         
The Kuyvyveen bird cliffs not only show a varied bird life, but also are one of the most spectacular settings for a Zodiac cruise. We will spend the morning here to look for and photograph birds and geology. A large sheltered bay with towering cliffs composed of light-colored granite and streaked by darker rock on each side creates the spectacular scenery of Cape Kuyvyveen. A sandy beach lies at the head of the bay with rolling tundra behind. The sheer granite rocks, distinct basalt caves and arches of the cape are home to thousands of Tufted Puffins that nest in rocky crevasses. Despite the cliffs on either side of the bay being quite close together, the adjacent terrains attract different species of birds. Thick-billed Murres, Glaucous and Slaty-winged Gulls, Parakeet Auklets and Red Phalaropes frequent the dramatic rocky formations while Common Murres, Pelagic Cormorants and Black-legged Kittiwakes line the cliffs and archways.

In the evening we will briefly stop in Provideniya for our outward clearance.

Day 5 – Cruising the Bering Sea (Cross the International Date Line and gain a day)
On our way back to Alaska we will be crossing the Dateline again -this time it will work in our favour, as we will have either yesterday’s date twice –or today will be tomorrow as well. Time travel is strange...
Take advantage to sleep in, be on the outer decks to look for marine mammals and seabirds, and attend one of the lectures preparing you for the Pribilof Islands. There surely are ways to keep you busy and even if it “only” is sampling the culinary specialties the Hotel Department is preparing for you.
 
Day 6 —Hall Island and St. Matthew Island, Alaska, USA
Today we will see two of the islands belonging to the Bering Sea Wilderness. At Hall Island we will spend the morning, to explore the rugged coast of this uninhabited island. Here we hope to witness the vast numbers of kittiwakes and guillemots that make their nest on the steep cliffs. Jacob’s ladder and lousewort will thrive between the auklet colonies. Be on the lookout for Arctic fox, and Horned Puffins that are regularly seen.

In the late morning Silver Explorerwill continue to St. Matthew Island. There you will step upon an island few have ever even heard of. Known as Alaska’s most remote location, it was designated by President Teddy Roosevelt as one of America’s first nature reserves in 1909. The focus today is on botany and birding -McKay’s Bunting, Lapland Longspur, and various seabirds are normally seen. At this time of the year the plants are alive in purple, pink and blue hues. Another treat you may see is the singing vole, endemic to St. Matthew.

Day 7 — St. Paul, Pribilof Islands, Alaska, U.S.A.
During the morning, while Silver Explorer will cruise the Bering Sea, enjoy a lecture about the natural history of Alaska.
After lunch join us for a visit to Town Cove and the Rift Point fur seal haul out. The bird cliffs and seal rookery are located at the eastern edge of the island. On the way you will note the fish and crab processing plant near the water, as well as the Russian Orthodox Church standing above the town. 
                 
To check out the seals on the low side of the island we will have to use the seal blind -to peer out into the busy seal rookery without disturbing anything. The sub-adult male northern fur seals lying on the grass in front of the blind have to wait until they are large enough to stake out their own territory down on the water’s edge and collect a harem of females of their own. On the far side of the blind, the view opens up to the ocean and St. Paul’s working waterfront. In the foreground however are close to a thousand sea lions barking, wailing, posturing and rushing one another, and hundreds of pups, waiting in groups for their mothers to return from the sea. 

Heading up to the bird cliffs you will be rewarded with stunningly close views of Tufted Puffins and Common Murres perched on the rocky ledges.  

Day 8 —Dutch Harbor, Unalaska Island, Aleutian Islands, Alaska, U.S.A.
Together with the city of Unalaska, Dutch Harbor is a bustling community with about 4,000 residents. It is connected by bridge to the rest of Unalaska on Amaknak Island, and its name is frequently applied to the entire town. Famous for its fishing fleet and documentaries done about the catch of king crabs out of Dutch Harbor, we will have a look at life on land and the different historical aspects of Unalaska and Amaknak Islands. During our city visit via a shuttle bus we might see the World War II bunkers or the spectacular Russian Orthodox Church. Dutch Harbor is one of the best (or easiest) places to see Bald Eagles and today birders will have excellent views of these magnificent animals. 

Day 9 — Unga Island, Aleutian Islands, Alaska
Unga Island had an Aleutian settlement which had been subject to a small gold rush. Unga Village was eventually abandoned in the 1960’s and now has a somewhat sombre appearance. Many of the houses have collapsed. From a distance the church with the tower seems intact. Standing close one can see that only the roof is standing on the ground, the walls having collapsed. Great Horned Owls nest near the church. Kittiwakes, Double-crested and Pelagic Cormorants, as well as good numbers of Common Murres and Tufted Puffins can be seen in the bay.

Day 10 — Castle Bay, Alaska
Castle Bay is just around the corner from Chignik, a fishing village of just a few hundred inhabitants –much depending on the season. The name Castle Bay was given, as the great scenery and the skyline of the mountains resembles turrets and towers of a castle. We will be cruising along the two ramifications of the northwestern arm of Castle Bay, bringing us close to harbor seals, Bald Eagles, Pigeon Guillemots, Marble Murrelets, Mew Gulls, Black-legged Kittiwakes and Vega Gulls.

Day 11 — Larsen Bay, Kodiak Island, Alaska  
Kodiak Island's National Wildlife Refuge covers the southwestern part of Kodiak Island. Silver Explorer will reach Larsen Bay, one of the hotspots of commercial and sports fishing on Kodiak Island's western side. The village of Larsen Bay is home to one of the oldest standing canneries on Kodiak Island.

To get a good overview of Kodiak Island, we will offer a scenic plane ride to view Kodiak's mountainous terrain, seeing native villages and commercial fishing operations as well as marine life and other wildlife. 

Day 12 — Chiswell Islands and Holgate Glacier, Alaska
The Chiswell Islands –part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge- will give us a last chance to get a close-up look at Steller sea lions using a local boat. Thousands of birds call these rugged islands their home and we can expect to see Horned Puffins, Tufted Puffins, Black-legged Kittiwakes, and of the auklet family the Cassin’s Auklet and the Whiskered Auklet, among others.

Kenai Fjords National Park’s famous Holgate Glacier will be our last chance to see a calving glacier. Enjoy he views from the outer decks as we leave the area shortly before sunset.

Today our onboard Videographer will present our Voyage-DVD recounting all the different impressions seen and adventures had during our voyage “Islands of the Bering Sea and Alaskan Peninsula”.
