Silversea Luxury Cruises A ICE EDGE CRUISING

From the edge of the mosaic of ice stretching to the North Pole, it really can seem like the edge of the world. Wrap up warm, bring your binoculars, and join your Expedition Team outside to experience the raw majesty of the Arctic Ocean. The bewilderingly complex maze of ice seems barren, but hides a wealth of life. Perhaps a smear of colour is spotted on the horizon. View more

Perhaps it turns out to be the dark fur of a snoozing seal, or a plump pink mother walrus nursing her calf, standing out against the bright white ice. Or maybe luck will favour us, as the ice is stained red by a polar bear, king of the Arctic, feasting on prey hauled from the frigid ocean. These magnificent animals are perfectly adapted to hunt seals or even animals as large as beluga whales in this harsh oceanscape, roaming thousands of miles across the ice in their never ending hunt for food. As the ship draws closer, we could be lucky enough to watch Earth's largest carnivore going about his business in his frozen kingdom, plodding across the ice, or paddling through the frigid water, constantly alert for prey. At the top of the food chain, these beautiful carnivores crown the Arctic ecosystem, but their kills often provide for many more animals, such as Arctic Skuas and elegant Ivory Gulls.
