About

Recommended for:
Natural world | Ocean cruise

Experience the wild wonders of western Canada and Alaska on this spectacular Silversea voyage from Vancouver to Anchorage. Sailing to remote coastal settlements, passing vast glaciers and the stunning landscapes if the iconic Inside Passage, it’s the ideal introduction to one of North America’s wildest regions. You’ll explore the very best of it with a full programme of included shore excursions – a first for Silversea on their 2022 departures. Led by experts in their field, each excursion has been designed to showcase the best of the region’s unique culture, cuisine and, of course, it’s breath-taking natural world. Then, between all that adventure, you’ll also be treated to the onboard delights of Silver Shadow, where you’ll enjoy everything from the sumptuous spa to a dazzling array of gourmet dining and entertainment options before retiring to your luxurious, butler-served suite. Please note, the equally superb Silver Muse operates on some departures. 

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK/Vancouver

Start your holiday in style with included UK airport lounge access before your flight to Vancouver. On arrival, transfer to your hotel in the city centre, spending the rest of the day relaxing or exploring at your own pace.

Stay: Vancouver accommodation

Day 2
Vancouver

Framed by soaring mountains and a pretty harbour, Vancouver is one of Canada’s most beautiful and diverse cities. Head out today to explore its vibrant neighbourhoods – Gastown is a favourite – and the sprawling greenery of Stanley Park, and get a taste for the world-spanning culinary scene that’s led it to be heralded as the dine-out capital of Canada. Otherwise, take the chance to seek out world class art galleries, Canada’s largest Chinatown. Tonight, having transferred to your ship and settled into your butler-served suites, you’ll set sail, heading north towards Alaska.

Stay: Silver Shadow

Meals: D

Day 3
Cruise the Inside Passage

Wake to some of the most spectacular scenery of your voyage as you enter the 500-mile stretch of inland sea known as the Inside Passage. Indeed, this is Alaska at its scenic best – think soaring mountains, forested islands and giant glaciers, all dotted with remote, hidden villages and even the occasional, magical sight of a breaching humpbacked whale. 

Stay: Silver Shadow

Meals: B L D

Day 4
Ketchikan

Known as the salmon capital of the world, Ketchikan has its roots firmly in the Alaskan fishing industry and the city is still home to several historic canneries. But there’s plenty more to see here, too. Your included excursions range from trips into the rainforest to oyster farm visits and the chance to catch a glimpse of cruising whales or sunbathing seals on a kayaking trip around the Tatoosh Islands. Alternatively, head out in search of sea eagles or fish for crab, halibut or octopus in the Bering sea aboard the Allutian Ballad. Fancy something a bit special? There’s also the chance to upgrade for the likes of Zodiac wildlife tours and even a flightseeing adventure followed by a freshly made crab dinner.

Stay: Silver Shadow

Meals: B L D

Day 5
Juneau

The state capital, Juneau enjoys a majestic setting – the Mendenhall Glacier sprawls down from the Juneau Icefield providing a stunning backdrop to this remote city, lost among the Alaskan wilderness. Take a trip on Mount Roberts Tramway to a viewpoint 1,800 feet above downtown Juneau – you can take a stroll on the Alpine trail and view the islands and distant waterways. Then there’s the chance to head out in search of migrating humpbacks or visit the Iditarod Sled Dog camp to see the beauty of Sheep Creek valley on a specially designed wheeled cart pulled by highly trained Alaskan huskies.

Stay: Silver Shadow

Meals: B L D

Day 6
Skagway

Famed for the Klondike Gold Rush of 1890’s, the city of Skagway offers a fascinating glimpse into the region’s mining past. It’s all set to a backdrop of soaring, snow-flecked peaks which loom above a tree line of mighty pine forests. The choice of excursions here is almost endless, with options ranging from rainforest bike and horseback rides to zip-lining adventures and even an introduction to rock climbing. If that all sounds a little too energetic, why not take a scenic trip on the White Pass Railway or explore Skagway’s downtown heritage on a streetcar city tour?

Stay: Silver Shadow

Meals: B L D

Day 7
Sitka

Once part of the Russian Empire until 1867, Sitka still shows its Russian History. The onion-shaped dome of St. Michael’s church is a story of the Russian Orthodox Church in Alaska. Today it holds an impressive collection of Russian Orthodox art and is a memorable sight against the sub-arctic skyline. Discover Alaska’s natural beauty and wildlife while cruising through Sitka Sound, keeping eyes peeled for sea otters, or maybe even catching sight of a bear with its cubs. For a closer look at the region’s wildlife and nature, choose between kayaking, rainforest hikes, Zodiac tours and ocean rafting. Alternatively, upgrade for the likes to wilderness fly fishing trips, volcano hikes and catamaran adventures.

Stay: Silver Shadow

Meals: B L D

Day 8
Cruise the Hubbard Glacier

Located just off the coast of Yukutat, the Hubbard Glacier is Alaska’s largest, measuring more than six miles wide at its face. It’s also been one of the state’s most active in past 30 years, having two major surges which were big enough to cross the bay, turning the fjord into a lake and threatening to flood the sleepy coastal settlements. Spend today onboard, taking in the glacier’s majesty from up on deck, paired with some to relax and indulge as you sail ever closer to Seward and your journey’s end. 

Stay: Silver Shadow

Meals: B L D

Day 9
Seward/Anchorage/UK

Say farewell to your ship and fellow travellers today as you transfer to Anchorage for your return overnight flight back to the UK.
