Day 10
Antarctic Sound: Arrival 05:30 - Choice of 3 shore excursions, inclusive
The Antarctic Sound will be one of your first encounters of this whitewash kingdom, located at the northerly tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. Taking its name from the first ship to brave the passageway between the peninsular and the Joinville Island groups back in 1902, the Sound is a raw, sensory assault of imposing iceberg slabs, broken away from the disintegrating Larsen Ice Shelf. Come face-to-face with stadium-sized islands of ice and meet the extraordinary birdlife that call this whitewash kingdom home. Watch on, as colonies of Gentoo penguins hop around, and cape petrels sweep overhead, as the continent’s unique wildlife thrives around you. If you’re planning your first venture into Antarctica, you’ll want to brush up on your photography skills in advance, to capture this unforgiving continent in all its unrestrained glory.
 
Options of 3 Shore Excursions:
Zodiac Cruise with Silversea Expedition team – Activity Level: Moderate

Join the expedition team as they lead you on exploratory walks along the shores of the Antarctic Peninsula. Visiting Adelie Penguin colonies, or a research station will give you a glimpse into the life of both human and Penguin in this harsh environment.

Start each day a hearty breakfast, followed by morning and afternoon Zodiac boat excursions. Observe polar wildlife and soak up the tranquillity of the ice as you visit Antarctica’s best-kept secrets, cruising the Antarctic Sound, South Shetland Islands, and the Danco Coast. Unseen by humans until 1820 - a blink of an eye ago in relative terms - this is an adventure sure to make your hairs stand on end, as you experience the thrill of the truly unknown and extraordinary. The vast peninsula is sprinkled with research bases, which are at the frontline of human scientific endeavour, pushing to study and understand this unique landscape, its exceptional wildlife, and the impact that humans are having on this pristine continent. Witness cathedral-sized icebergs up close, and blue-hued glaciers, slowly slipping from imposing locations like Hope Bay. Blanched mountain peaks cover the peninsula, and you’ll find thousands of adorable Adelie penguin pairs thriving undisturbed in this peninsula’s unique setting.
 
Options of 3 Shore Excursions:
Zodiac Cruise with Silversea Expedition team – Activity Level: Moderate
The thrill of an Antarctic voyage is part due to the unscheduled exploration opportunities that will come up.

Day 14
South Shetland Islands - 1 shore excursions included
Lying close to the north-western tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, separated by the Bransfield Strait, the South Shetland Islands fall under the jurisdiction of the Antarctic Treaty, suspending claims on their sovereignty. Several countries maintain research bases here, and with plump elephant seals, and crowds of Gentoo, Chinstrap and Adelie Penguins also calling the islands home, it can even feel a little crowded at times. King George Island is the largest and most hospitable island, hosting most of the research stations - some of which are populated all-year-round by tiny, hardy crews. Don’t be fooled though, these islands offer extraordinary adventure in one of the most remote locations on earth. The triple peaks of Mount Foster tower above the archipelago, and you’ll feel your heart pumping a little quicker, as you sail into the core of Deception Island’s magnificent collapsed volcano caldera. Hike the Luna landscapes within, and even dip into the improbably warm, geothermally heated waters of Pendulum Cove. Elephant Island, meanwhile, is written deep into the annals of Antarctic expedition legend, as the site where Ernest Shackleton and the stricken crew of the Endurance miraculously survived a harsh Antarctic winter in 1916. Discover even more reasons to visit this incredible icy kingdom and find out why many consider the South Shetland Islands to be the jewel in Antarctica’s Crown.
 
Option of 1 Shore Excursions:
Zodiac Cruise with Silversea Expedition team – Activity Level: Moderate
Set parallel to the Antarctic Peninsula, across a stretch 540km of ocean this archipelago is formed of more than20 islands and islets that were first discovered in 1819 - you will be met by the abundance of wildlife including penguin rookeries and beaches that filled with seals.
