SAIL WESTERN CANADA AND ALASKA WITH SILVERSEA
Sail through the rugged inside passage, past evergreen forests and across the placid waters of an Alaskan fjord on this 10 day voyage from San Francisco to Vancouver onboard Silversea's Silver Shadow.
Setting sail from the 'City by the Bay', San Francisco, on 4 May 2015, Silver Shadow voyages to Astoria, Oregon. Surrounded by water and tall evergreen Douglass Fur, Hemlock and Spruce trees, Astoria is rich in scenic beauty, with a vista to the Pacific Ocean from the top of Astoria's historic Column.
Continuing her voyage north, Silver Shadow sails to Wrangell in Alaska, a hidden jewel in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, before journeying to Sitka. Here, guests explore the dramatic hillside setting and the region's history in Sitka National Historical Park.
Silver Shadow's next port of call is Juneau, Alaska's capital, located on the North American mainland but unable to be reached by road. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the Mt. Roberts Tramway, densely forested wilderness areas, quiet bays for sea kayaking and the famous drive up Mendenhall Glacier.
Sailing to the northern finger of the Inside Passage, Silver Shadow docks in Skagway, a seaport that sits on a deep-water fjord at the head of Lynn Canal, before visiting Ketchikan. This part of Alaska is famous for its vibrant totem poles, steep streets and lush island setting, where guests glimpse the rugged frontier spirit that once permeated the town.
Silver Shadow spends her final day traversing the Inside Passage, a coastal route which weaves through the islands on the Pacific coast of North America. Concluding her journey in Vancouver in Canada, guests disembark on 14 May 2015.
Prices are per person starting from AU$5,050 in a Vista Suite double occupancy. Silversea fares include: all-suite accommodation with butler service; gourmet meals with menus inspired by Relais & Châteaux; complimentary wines, Champagne and spirits served throughout the ships; and all gratuities.
