#expeditioncruising .


Discover the ice-covered wonderland continent of Antarctica, on a 10-day voyage aboard Silver Explorer.  Departing Ushuaia, Argentina, on 26 February 2017, Silver Explorer journeys toward the Antarctic Peninsula, where guests will marvel at the incredible array of wildlife against the stunning backdrop of spectacular iceberg sculptures and calving glaciers.

Continuing her journey through the Antarctic Peninsula, Silver Explorer discovers the Aitcho and South Shetland Islands. As you step off the Zodiac to explore the island, it is very likely you will be greeted by the locals…penguins! Penguin species here include Gentoo and Chinstrap. Other annual seabirds include the Southern Giant Petrels.

During its final days, Silver Explorer journeys its way through other regions of the Antarctic Peninsula, where guests are able to view the 745-meter-high ice-caped mountain of the Tabarin Peninsula, the penguin colony on Paulet Island, and the collapsed volcano of Whalers Bay. Silver Explorer­ concludes her journey, returning via Drake Passage, disembarking in Ushuaia, Argentina, 08 March 2017.
