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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.

puntos esenciales del viaje

Expedition Highlights:                                                                                                

  • Explore the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Juan Fernandez –with the highest percentage of endemic plants anywhere
  • Look for the endemic Juan Fernandez furs seal (once believed to be extinct) as well as endemic Pink-footed Shearwaters, Masatierra Petrels, Juan Fernandez Firecrown and the critically endangered Masafuera Rayadito.
  • Take a Zodiac cruise along the shores of Alexander Selkirk, one of Chile’s most isolated Islands   
  • Explore the Salas y Gomez Marine Park –a set of tiny rocks within the Pacific, covering a marine area larger than Galapagos

 

Day 1 - Valparaiso, 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 Valparaiso, you will attend a mandatory safety drill. Join us for a Sail Away Cocktail on the outer decks as we sail away from Valparaiso’s Historic Center (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). 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 - At Sea
Having left Valparaiso behind, Silver Explorer will have to cover some 370 miles to reach the first of the Juan Fernandez Islands the west.

During our day at sea we will cross the Humboldt Current and will be looking for the occasional seabirds, perhaps spotting the Juan Fernandez Petrel. Our lecturers will present talks about the natural history and other topics related to our next destination, the Juan Fernandez Archipelago.

Day 3 - 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 it was called “Mas a Tierra” (closer to land) as it is closer to mainland Chile than Alexander Selkirk –a further 112 nautical miles to the west. In 1966 the island’s name was changed to Robinson Crusoe, Daniel Defoe’s famous literary character, hoping to attract more tourism.

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 4 - 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.

Days 5-8 - At Sea
After leaving Alexander Selkirk almost 1400 nautical miles will have to be covered before reaching Salas y Gomez. During our days at sea we will be looking for large schools of dolphins that have been observed on this transect before.
Our lecturers will present talks about Chile, the Pacific Ocean and obviously topics related to our next destination, Easter Island, and the famous statues. 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 9 - Isla Salas y Gomez
We will approach Salas y Gomez during the early morning. We will take 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.

In the afternoon our onboard Videographer will present the DVD-documentary of our voyage.

Day 10 - Easter Island, Chile
Silver Explorer will sail along Easter Island’s coast, part of the Rapa Nui National Park –a UNESCO World Heritage Site- at dawn and will anchor in front of Hanga Roa, the island’s only settlement at sunrise.
After breakfast disembark Silver Explorer.
