Discover the treasures of the north as you sail towards amazing Iceland with Silversea over 14 days. Leave cosmopolitan London and explore the Thames during the morning before heading to the Heart of Neolithic Orkney, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Observe flocks of Atlantic Puffins and Arctic Terns in the stunning Nordic scenery, big, bold, breathtaking and beautiful.
Experience how different and yet how beautiful two countries can be on this journey through Great Britain and Iceland. Sail from capital to capital, London to Reykjavik, with stops in Scotland and Wales. The voyage starts as you pass under the storied Tower Bridge high and regal above the Silver Cloud. Head down the Thames River past Greenwich, then make your way to the tiny Isles of Scilly where we will visit the unique sub-tropical Tresco Abbey Gardens, cultivated around a 10th century Benedictine Abbey. Further on, search for incredible bird cliffs in Wales, Scotland, the Faroe Islands and Iceland, including the astounding numbers of puffins, gannets and guillemots that can be seen in Latrabjarg, Europe’s largest bird cliff. Ride aboard the Isle of Man Steam Railway, the island’s oldest Victorian rail system with its original carriages still in operation. In Iceland there will be time to explore the volcanic landscapes and to watch for whales. Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of these naturally beautiful locations from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.
Silver Cloud is the most spacious and comfortable ice class vessel in expedition cruising. Her large suites, her destination itineraries and her unparalleled service make her truly special. Her four dining options will tantalise your taste buds and as 80% of her suites include a veranda, watching a breaching whale or a few cavorting penguins has never been so personal. Broad sweeping decks with multiple open spaces and a swimming pool complete what is surely the most distinctive expedition ship sailing today. A limited number of guests in polar waters, mean that Silver Cloud has the highest space to guest and crew to guest ratios in expedition cruising. With her 16 zodiacs, 10 kayaks, possibilities are almost limitless with ship-wide simultaneous explorations. Finally, a team of up to 22 passionate and dedicated expedition experts are always at hand to ensure your voyage is enhanced every step of the way.
