THE ARCTIC<br />

IT IS…<br />

…an area enclosed by a notional circle with the<br />

North Pole at its centre that crosses seven<br />

countries (Norway, Greenland, Russia, Canada,<br />

Alaska, Finland, Sweden) and passes through<br />

the Icelandic Island of Grimsby.<br />

…the place to cruise the Northwest Passage,<br />

the Arctic route between North America and<br />

Greenland discovered in 1906 by Norwegian<br />

explorer Roald Amundsen.<br />

…an average 3-12˚C in summer, falling to an<br />

average -34˚C in winter.<br />

…home to about four million people.<br />

…the place to spot polar bears. It’s also home to millions of<br />

seabirds, Arctic foxes and Svalbard Reindeer and walruses.<br />

…home to four species of whales and six species<br />

of seals.<br />

…blanketed by so much ice that if it were all to melt the sea<br />

levels would rise 23.6 feet.<br />

THE FIRST EVER<br />

EXPEDITION WORLD CRUISE<br />

A world cruise is always an adventure<br />

but imagine how amazing it would be<br />

to find one that veers away from the<br />

path well trod and instead calls into<br />

spectacular places where very few<br />

people ever set foot.<br />

Impossible? Not for Silversea<br />

<strong>Expedition</strong>s, which has launched the<br />

first-ever expedition world cruise.<br />

The 167-day Uncharted World Tour,<br />

on Silversea’s expedition ship Silver<br />

Cloud, sets sail on January 30 2021,<br />

and will take guests on a spectacular<br />

journey from Ushuaia in Argentina<br />

to Tromso in Norway by way of<br />

Antarctica, the Chilean fjords, the<br />

South Pacific, Papua New Guinea,<br />

Indonesia, the Mediterranean and<br />

Norwegian fjords. Ten shorter sectors are planned<br />

to go on sale nearer to the departure date.<br />

The list of calls en route reads like a who’s who<br />

of expedition favourites, but with more than a few<br />

exciting-sounding places that most people will<br />

likely never even have heard of.<br />

Weather permitting there’ll be a landing in<br />

the South Shetland Islands, a day to explore<br />

Chile’s colourful island capital of Castro, and an<br />

overnight stay in remote Easter Island, to see the<br />

extraordinary monumental statues carved more<br />

than 700 years ago by the Rapa Nui people.<br />

Guests will be island-hopping through Vanuatu<br />

and the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, visit<br />

volcanic Rabaul in Papua New Guinea and seek out<br />

saltwater crocodiles as they cruise the Kimberley<br />

in Australia. They’ll see orang-utans in the wild in<br />

Indonesia, glaciers and polar bears in Svalbard and<br />

a myriad of seabirds in Norway’s Gjesvaerstappan<br />

Islands.<br />

They’ll be accompanied along the way by a<br />

brilliant line-up of guest speakers who are experts<br />

in everything from anthropology and archaeology<br />

to geology, garden design and history. They include<br />

Jo Ruxton, who produced the documentary A<br />

Plastic Ocean, Egyptologist Chris Naunton, and<br />

explorer Felicity Aton, the first and only woman to<br />

ski across Antarctica alone.<br />
