Antarctica. Even just saying it sounds adventurous. The surreal remoteness. The absolute beauty. The myriad of wildlife. The ice. The snow (the miles and miles of snow and ice). And yes, the Drake Passage. A rite of passage for those who really want to travel to the seventh continent; the Drake Passage proves that you need to earn the right to go to Antarctica. And for those who travel with passion, this is the only destination on the planet that will suffice.
Meeting the personal challenge of reaching Earth’s last wilderness doesn’t necessarily mean roughing it. Silversea’s polished luxury offers even the most intrepid of explorers’ home comforts, whether it’s onboard or onshore. Think guided Zodiac tours with world-class experts, 10-night sailings that include expedition adventures to South Georgia and the Falkland Islands and award-winning luxury from stem to stern. With both comfort and authenticity on the map, isn’t it time you fell in love with Antarctica?
The pursuit of the unknown reaches an epic level north of the Arctic Circle — all among the captivating cacophony of Svalbard’s calving glaciers, walruses feasting on Atlantic oysters, and the Viking legends pervading the shores of Greenland. There is a reason why this is one of the most successful destinations. Venture beyond the unknown and explore the beating heart of the Arctic. Journey in supreme comfort to the very top of the world and discover so much more than just Polar Bears and midnight sun. Enthusiastic and expert Expedition Team Members keep you in the know while immersive local culture keeps you on the go. Inspirational, aspirational, and educational – champagne on ice will never seem the same again.

Aided by a team of world-class experts, the ultra-luxury ships are modern gems of design, excelling in both fine living and exploration. The small ship cruises offer comfort, unrivalled expedition knowledge, and some of the most spectacular landscape you’re ever likely to see.

With Silversea, you will be kayaking the glacial Arctic seas by day, and dining in superlative luxury by night.
The extensive coverage of the region offers a variety of itineraries and lengths. From a full circumnavigation of Svalbard to crossing the Northwest Passage, there is very little of the region we don’t cover. Your Arctic adventure starts here.
