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.

College Fjord in the northern sector of Prince William Sound, is considered one of the most scenic fjords in the world with spectacular glacier viewing. . There are over a dozen major glaciers in the fjord, all surrounded by rugged snow-capped mountains. It is possible from one point to see eight glaciers at once. College Fjord was discovered in 1899 during the Harriman Expedition. Edward Henry Herriman, a millionaire railroad tycoon, set sail with 125 other passengers and crew, including 23 of esteemed scientists from several Ivy League schools, to explore the fjords of Alaskan.
Esther Passage is a narrow passage separating Esther Island from the mainland. It is only 10 miles long, but it is one of the most scenic passages in Alaska. In places it becomes so narrow that it seems like the lush green hills on either side are going to envelop the ship. It is also rich in wildlife, with possible sightings of bald eagles, otters, bears, and orca
Cape St Elias is the southwest end of Kayak Island in the Gulf of Alaska. It is separated from the mainland by a channel 4 miles wide. The island, named by Lt. Sarichef of the Russian Navy in 1826 because its outline resembles the shape of an Eskimo skin canoe, is 20 miles long and only 2 miles wide and covered in dense rainforest. The cape itself was named by Russian explorer Vitus Bering on July 20, 1741 in honour of St. Elias, whose saint's day is July 20. The lighthouse, located at the southernmost tip, is a National Historic Landmark.
Icy Bay, located on the south eastern edge of the Gulf of Alaska, is a relatively new geographical feature that has formed within the past 100 years. As recently as the early 1900’s, the glacier front reached all the way to the Gulf of Alaska. However, the rapid retreat of the three major glaciers in the area (the Guyot, Yahtse, and Tyndall Glaciers) has resulted in the present-day bay, which is over 30 miles long. The surrounding scenery is stunning, with Mount Elias (at over 18,000 feet) towering high on the horizon.
Hubbard Glacier, off the coast of Yakutat, Alaska, is the largest glacier in North America, with a calving front that is more than six miles wide. One of the main sources for Hubbard Glacier originates 76 mi inland. It has been a very active glacier, experiencing two major surges in the past 30 years. This glacier was named after Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a U.S. lawyer, financier, and philanthropist. He was the first president of the National Geographic Society.
Elfin Cove sits snugly on the southern shore of Cross Sound, which leads in eastwards to the Inside Passage. Northwards and across the Sound from the small community lies Glacier Bay National Park and the Fairweather Mountain range. Elfin Cove is a quaint little harbor clustered with attractive timber houses built into the wooded hillsides on stilts. The population swells to about 200 during the summer months, from a rather meager 6 or so during the snowy and isolated winters.
During the evening Silver Explorer will be near Point Adolphus, a well-known area for whale watching. Enjoy an aperitif while you are on the outer decks, looking for humpback whales as well as orcas, or simply enjoying the landscape.
This narrow passage is used by small vessels to traverse from the open Pacific Ocean to the Alaskan Inside Passage. It is notoriously difficult to navigate due to raging currents and whirlpools. All vessels wait until slack tide when the currents are at their slowest to start manoeuvring. The narrow passage, less than 100 meters wide in places, wanders through heavily forested steep hills of the Tongass National Forest.
It's hard not to like Sitka, with its eclectic blend of Alaska Native, Russian, and American history and its dramatic and beautiful open-ocean setting. This is one of the best Inside Passage towns to explore on foot, with such sights as St. Michael's Cathedral, Sheldon Jackson Museum, Castle Hill, Sitka National Historical Park, and the Alaska Raptor Center topping the town's must-see list.

A small, unassuming timber and fishing community, Wrangell sits on the northern tip of Wrangell Island, near the mouth of the fast-flowing Stikine River—North America's largest undammed river. The Stikine plays a large role in the life of many Wrangell residents, including those who grew up homesteading on the islands that pepper the area. Trips on the river with local guides are highly recommended as they provide, basically, an insider's guide to the Stikine and a very Alaskan way of life. Like much of Southeast, Wrangell has suffered in recent years from a declining resource-based economy.

Ketchikan is famous for its colorful totem poles, rainy skies, steep–as–San Francisco streets, and lush island setting. Some 13,500 people call the town home, and, in the summer, cruise ships crowd the shoreline, floatplanes depart noisily for Misty Fiords National Monument, and salmon-laden commercial fishing boats motor through Tongass Narrows. In the last decade Ketchikan's rowdy, blue-collar heritage of logging and fishing has been softened by the loss of many timber-industry jobs and the dramatic rise of cruise-ship tourism.

Since the late 19th century, Metlakatla has been the major settlement of the Metlakatla Indian Community of the federally recognized Annette Islands Reserve, the only remaining reservation in Alaska. It is located on Annette Island, and in 2010 had 1,405 residents. Membership in the community is primarily by lineage and is comprised primarily of Tsimshian people. Metlakatla comes from a Tsimshian word meaning "Salt Water Passage.
Separating Revillagigedo Island from the Alaskan mainland, the roughly 100 miles long Behm Canal is located within the Tongass National Forest. Already charted in 1793 by George Vancouver, the Behm Canal is the western border of Misty Fiords National Monument. Tongass National Forest extends over 16.9 million acres and is the largest wilderness area in Alaska’s forests and the second largest forest in the nation. It has been described as an almost untouched coastal ecosystem with outstanding geological features, and Misty Fiords National Monument is sometimes called “The Yosemite of the North”.
Rudyerd Bay is one of the highlights of the Misty Fiords, 40 miles east of Ketchikan, along the Inside Passage. This fjord cuts through steep-sided mountainous terrain and extends far into the mainland. The scenery is stunning, with dramatic thousand-foot waterfalls plunging down rainforest covered cliffs to the water below.
Just 40 mi (66 km) south of the Alaskan border, Prince Rupert is the largest community on British Columbia's north coast. Set on Kaien Island at the mouth of the Skeena River and surrounded by deep green fjords and coastal rain forest, Prince Rupert is rich in the culture of the Tsimshian, people who have been in the area for thousands of years. As the western terminus of Canada's second transcontinental railroad and blessed with a deep natural harbor, Prince Rupert was, at the time of its incorporation in 1910, poised to rival Vancouver as a center for trans-Pacific trade.

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.
If it is drama that you are after, then you certainly need look no further that the dramatic beauty of the Inside Passage. With isolated communities nestling in shoreside villages, mountains rising from the tidal waters, seals basking on ice floes and massive glaciers calving with a thunderous snap in the distance, this stretch of water is quite unique. Named after early explorers who were looking for the Northwest Passage (found much further north), cruising the Inside Passage has become a must for any sailing aficionado.
Alert Bay is a small village on Cormorant Island, with approximately 1,300 residents. More than half are First Nations people. The settlement was named in 1860 in honour of the Royal Navy ship HMS Alert, which conducted survey operations in the area. The traditional Kwakwaka’wakw people of Alert Bay have endured a difficult history of devastating foreign diseases and failed government policies of assimilation. Today there is a revival of their traditions.
Vancouver is a delicious juxtaposition of urban sophistication and on-your-doorstep wilderness adventure. The mountains and seascape make the city an outdoor playground for hiking, skiing, kayaking, cycling, and sailing—and so much more—while the cuisine and arts scenes are equally diverse, reflecting the makeup of Vancouver's ethnic (predominantly Asian) mosaic. Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the world's most livable cities, and it's easy for visitors to see why. It's beautiful, it's outdoorsy, and there's a laidback West Coast vibe.

melhores momentos da viagem

Day 1 — Seward, Alaska, USA
Embark Silver Explorer and depart on your exciting 12-day Silversea Expedition — “Splendors of Alaska”. After settling in you will attend a safety briefing and be introduced to your Expedition Team. Weather permitting we will have a sail-away cocktail on deck.
We invite you to familiarise yourself with your new home away from home, meet some of your fellow travellers and enjoy the first of many memorable meals in The Restaurant.

Day 2 — College Fjord and cruising Esther Passage, Alaska, USA
During the morning Silver Explorer will enter Prince William Sound and will be heading for an area first visited by the Harriman Expedition in 1899 -and named by the participants for prominent East Coast Colleges. Although the expedition was predominantly male it had been decided to name the tidewater and valley glaciers in a specific way: men’s colleges on the eastern side, women’s colleges on the western side.
On our way out of College Fjord we cruise in Esther Passage using local boats. On our portside we will see mainland Alaska, while on starboard will be Esther Island.

Day 3 — Cape St. Elias, Kayak Island, and Icy Bay, Alaska, USA
After cruising the Gulf of Alaska, Silver Explorer will approach Kayak Island, a historical landmark -as this was the only island in Alaska where Georg Steller landed during the Bering Expedition of 1740.
Cape Elias, on its southern tip, not only has an automated lighthouse and a log-strewn shore, but a few haul-outs of Steller sea lions on the flat rocks might be spotted. Some of the island’s haul-outs are quite large, containing several huge males and their harems of females. On the water rafts of Short-tailed Shearwaters and Red-necked Phalaropes are not uncommon.

During the afternoon at sea lectures will prepare you for the upcoming experiences. Perhaps you would like to know about the different expeditions that have chartered Alaska or want to find out what birds and mammals call this part of the world their home — attend one of the lectures by our experts and specialists on board.
While we cruise the Gulf of Alaska, take the opportunity to scan the waters for whales from the outer decks. We will be getting closer and closer to the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve to which Malaspina Glacier and Hubbard Glacier belong. In the evening the Captain will take Silver Explorer into Icy Bay, a large scenic fjord that only opened up in the last hundred years after significant glacial reduction. Mount St. Elias should make a perfect backdrop for photographs of this bay.

Day 4 — Hubbard Glacier, Alaska, USA
Shortly after breakfast we will be in front of Hubbard Glacier –and depending on conditions Silver Explorer will be taken along the front of the Hubbard Glacier and while cruising we hope to see some glacier calvings.

Day 5 — Elfin Cove and Point Adolphus, Alaska, USA
This morning we visit the small community of Elfin Cove where you will have good opportunities to go for a walk on wooden boardwalks, exploring the unusual set-up of the village.

During the late afternoon Silver Explorer will be near Point Adolphus, a well-known area for whale watching. Enjoy an aperitif while you are on the outer decks, looking for humpback whales as well as orcas, or simply enjoying the landscape.

Day 6 — Sergius Narrows and Sitka, Alaska, USA
Today be prepared for a very early wake-up call if you want to see the Sergius Narrows which separate Chichagof and Catherine Islands.
At noon Silver Explorer will arrive in Sitka, one of Alaska’s major fishing ports and communities. Sitka’s past has seen Tlingit settle the area thousands of years ago, Russians coming to trade in the late 18th century and the United States taking over through the Alaska purchase in 1867.
Apart from exploring the town itself, there are trails within the Sitka National Historic Park/Totem Park that will permit you to see some of the emblematic totem poles and the Russian Bishop’s House, a National Historic Landmark. A walking tour will lead through Sitka on to the Alaska Raptor Center, where there will be opportunities to photograph Bald Eagles, owls and other birds of prey.
Otherwise discover Sitka Sound's wildlife from a local boat. You can join a Jet-Cat wildlife viewing adventure aboard a small deluxe expedition catamaran, and step ashore on a remote island to explore the rugged coast. Expert naturalists will accompany you on your quest for whales, sea otters, puffins, Bald Eagles or even brown bears in pristine Sitka Sound. Depending on tides and weather you might also be beachcombing, looking for tide pools and tracing wildlife tracks. Another option would be to travel on a waterjet-driven boat that has been specifically designed to navigate Southeast Alaska's narrow island passages and bays, permitting spectacular wildlife viewing at close range. Be on the lookout for sea otters, whales, sea lions, porpoises, harbor seals, black-tailed deer, Bald Eagles, and a variety of wildlife species during this jet-boat excursion.

Day 7 — Wrangell, Alaska, USA
Silver Explorer will be at Wrangell for the day. The town of Wrangell, one of Alaska's oldest towns, is on the northern tip of Wrangell Island. More than a dozen totem poles are scattered throughout town and one of the best collections of totem poles is found on Chief Shakes Island, a grassy islet in the middle of the boat harbor. Fyurther proof of Wrangell having been visited and used by the Tlingit is Petroglyph Beach State Historic Park with more than 40 of the designs found along the shore just afew hundred meters north of the town.

The Stikine Tlingit clans had summer fishing camps in different parts of the area and several clans used Anan Creek's large salmon spawning run to catch and preserve salmon for their winter food supply. Anan Creek has the largest run of pink salmon in Southeast Alaska and the abundance of salmon attracts large concentrations of Bald Eagles, black bears, harbor seals and a number of brown bears to feed.  We will head by local boat to Anan Creek, located some 30 miles southeast of the town of Wrangell, and will look for wildlife and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
 

Day 8 — Ketchikan and Metlakatla, Alaska, USA
During the morning Silver Explorer will be in Ketchikan. This is one of the larger towns of the area and will offer a variety of exciting options. Today you may choose to participate in a truly unique “Wilderness Exploration & Crab Feast” that will bring you by boat right to the heart of Southeast Alaska and the awe inspiring Tongass National Forest, ending in a crab feast you will remember.
You may also choose to participate in a truly unique “Alaskan Wilderness Survival” program. Travel by local boat with a wilderness skills instructor to a remote island where he will lead your small group through an old-growth rainforest and show you a few tricks of the survivalist’s trade. This hands-on experience engages all in tasks like building a shelter, collecting wild edibles, and signalling from the beach. 
Alternatively depart the pier for the scenic, eight-mile (13-kilometre) coastal drive en route to the private Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary, an exclusive reserve located in the forested mountains at rustic Herring Cove. Here you will enjoy a guided rainforest walk where your guide will bring to life the local flora and fauna and provide you an in depth look at the Tongass National Rainforest.
During lunchtime Silver Explorer will sail to reach Metlakatla.
Here Silver Explorer will be at anchor in front of Annette Island, Alaska. The Tsimshian of Metlakatla are famous for their Totem Poles. During the visit of the town we will get to see at least 12 of these emblematic pieces of art and we will be led to the William Duncan Memorial Museum to understand their culture and history, specifically why and when they moved to Annette Island. We will also experience a dance performance at their longhouse. You can also take one of the many trails around Skaters Lake getting an insight into the different plants used by the Tsimshian.

Day 9 – Behm Canal and Rudyerd Bay, Misty Fjords, Alaska, USA
Located within the Tongass National Forest is the wilderness area and Misty Fiords National Monument. Extending over 2.3 million acres it is the largest wilderness area in Alaska’s forests and the second largest in the nation. It has been described as an almost untouched coastal ecosystem with outstanding geological features, and Misty Fiords National Monument is sometimes called “The Yosemite of the North” -so be prepared for a broad spectrum of wildlife that we intend to see during the day. Silver Explorer will be cruising in the Behm Canal which passes through the Misty Fiords National Monument to the east of Revillagigedo Island. During the afternoon we will board a local boat to see Rudyerd Bay and look for Marbled Murrelets, which unlike most members of the auk family nest in trees, and Bald Eagles, as well as brown and black bears on the ground, and harbour seals and sea otters in the water.

Day 10 — Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada
Before breakfast, Silver Explorer will arrive in Prince Rupert, the “City of Rainbows”, our point of entry into Canada — and Canada’s “Gateway to the North”.
Prince Rupert’s port is the deepest natural harbour in North America and ice-free all year round, making it an ideal port for cargo between Asia and North America since it is connected to the Canadian Railway, too. Fishing and lumber were once dominant, but tourism is becoming an important factor.
In Prince Rupert coaches will meet you at the dock to take you to tour the North Pacific Cannery, the longest running cannery in British Columbia (and now a museum), to better understand part of Prince Rupert’s economy. The North Pacific Historic Fishing Village is a National Historic Site and is the most complete cannery that remains of these remote villages that once dotted the West Coast.

Day 11 — At sea
While Silver Explorer sails south through Hecate Strait and Queen Charlotte Sound, you might attend a workshop by our Photographer to edit the many photos taken so far, or join one of our experts for final lectures regarding Alaska and British Columbia. Perhaps a wine tasting seminar is more to your liking. Make sure you get some exercise, either on the outer decks or in the Fitness Centre.
Or simply relax on the Sun Deck and enjoy being at sea.

Day 12 — Alert Bay, Johnstone Strait and Seymour Narrows, British Columbia, Canada
Located near the northern entrance of Johnstone Strait, Alert Bay is a small but culturally and historically very rich village on Cormorant Island (named after HMS Cormorant). The Kwakwaka’wakw are well known for their art, and especially their carvings. Not only were totem poles of importance, masks were/are central to the representation of the different characters of their dances and feature prominently. We will spend the morning in Alert and will see a cultural presentation and walk to the Memorial Totem Poles at the Namgis Burial Ground, one of the few places were the Totem Poles have not been disturbed nor removed.
At the U’mista Cultural Centre we take a walk into the past and hear about the potlatch system and the ancient way of life. The museum holds a precious collection of masks and artefacts previously confiscated during the potlatch ban from 1884 to 1951. At the Big House we will experience traditional First Nations songs and dances. The most important of the sacred dances is the Hamat’sa or cannibal dance. This dance is the re-enactment of a young man’s possession by a cannibal spirit living at the North End of the world.
During the afternoon we cruise the Johnstone Strait. This spectacular waterway invites you to take in the scenery from the outer decks of Silver Explorer. The strait is between 2.5 km and 5 km wide, 110 kilometres in length and is home to large numbers of orcas during the summer months. The largest member of the dolphin family, orcas (also known as killer whales) can measure nearly ten metres in length and weigh up to six tons.

Day 13 — Vancouver, Canada
After breakfast, disembark Silver Explorer.
