Dubrovnik

M/S Splendid will be docked in Dubrovnik Gruž harbour where you can board during the entire day. Join the welcome meeting at 7:00 p.m. where our cruise director will introduce you to the captain, crew and your future fellow passengers, with whom you will spend a week on board.

Day 2

Dubrovnik, National Park Mljet

After breakfast, our English speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. Following an organized panoramic drive with a photo stop of breath-taking scenery at a hill above Dubrovnik, we'll descend to the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site, where our guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After the city tour you’ll be left on your own to explore and enjoy this city, known around the world as The Pearl of Adriatic. At 12:00 we’ll have a transfer to the ship. Lunch will be served on board en route to Mljet National Park, where we shall arrive late in the afternoon. Overnight in Mljet (breakfast/lunch onboard).

Day 3

National Park Mljet, Korčula

This morning you’ll be free to explore National Park Mljet (entrance fees are not included), to walk around the Great and Small Lake, visit The Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery dating from the 12th century and, of course, take a swim in the heart of this pristine National Park. Lunch will be served on board as we continue our cruise toward the Island of Korčula, where we shall arrive in the afternoon, docking in the Town of Korčula. This historic town is known as the birthplace of Marko Polo, one of the most famous world explorers of all times.

You’ll have the rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice. Overnight in Korčula Historical Town (breakfast/lunch onboard).

Day 4

Korčula, Vis

In the morning, we’ll continue our cruise to the Island of Vis, with a swim stop en route. Arrival to Vis is scheduled for the afternoon. Vis is rather unique compared to other Croatian Adriatic islands. Due to its important strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for a long time and was consequently spared of the usual tourist development. Beautiful beaches, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture make up the advantages of this remarkable Croatian island. You will have afternoon and evening free in Vis, to enjoy its unspoilt nature and dine in one of family run restaurants. Overnight in Vis Town (breakfast/lunch onboard).

Day 5

Vis, Biševo Blue Cave, Hvar

We'll start our day with a morning cruise towards Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to Blue Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors to dive deeply in order to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. Sunbeams penetrating through the cave’s submarine opening get reflected from the white bottom floor, colouring the cave aquamarine and objects in the water silver, creating a truly stunning and magical natural phenomenon. However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. For this reason, entrance fees are paid on the spot – if we 'all lucky enough to visit the cave! After a swim stop and lunch, we'll continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point of the international jet set. Upon our afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you through the town, introducing you to the island’s way of life, its rich history and culture. You'll learn how lavender was traditionally farmed on Hvar, for many centuries. Afterwards, you'll be free to enjoy your evening in Hvar, to explore on your own and dine in one of its numerous family owned restaurants or taverns. Overnight in Hvar Historical Town (breakfast/lunch onboard).

Day 6

Hvar, Bol, Pučišća

We'll start our day with a morning departure towards Bo. Bol is famous for having one of the finest European beaches, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape). As we stop in Bol, you can relax in this charming Dalmatian town. Have a walk, a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch we’ll continue cruising towards Pučišća, with refreshing swim stops en route and lunch served on board. Pučišća is the biggest village on the island of Brač. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća. Its spectacular irregularity of steep-sided natural harbour, authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience are simply unforgettable. The fjord-like inlet of Pučišća meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills, joining the bay’s quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća quarry was exploited by Romans in the antiquity, after which it was abandoned until the reopening in 1455. Stone from Pučišća quarry was used to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, Vienna Parliament and many other famous buildings around the world. Pučišća is also home to the only Croatian Stonemasonry school. Its students carve sculptures from Brač limestone, applying traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries. We shall spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pučišća that have intrigued us so much in daylight. Overnight in Pučišća (breakfast/lunch onboard).

Day 7

Pučišća, Omiš, Split

After breakfast we'll cruise across the Brač channel to Omiš, an ancient town with city walls, fortresses and stone churches. Omiš is located at the delta of Cetina River, with its wonderful beaches. For centuries, Omiš was for a stronghold of famous pirates, a symbol of retaliation, courage and strength in the long historical fight against The Republic of Venice. After a relaxed walk in Omiš we’ll have lunch. During the afternoon hours we'll sail on towards Split, our last stop. Our English speaking guide will do the afternoon Split City tour and walk us through the historical Diocletian’s Palace. The second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of the Split- Dalmatia County, Split boasts 1700 years of history. Since 1979 the historic centre of Split has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. City’s historical and cultural buildings are located inside the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace. After the city tour you will be left on your own to explore Split and have an intimate farewell dinner on your own. Overnight in Split Historical Town (breakfast/lunch onboard).

Day 2

Dubrovnik – Korčula

The far south of Croatia holds many gems. Start with an optional walking tour* of Dubrovnik, a.k.a. the Pearl of the Adriatic or the King’s Landing. Whatever you might consider to be the town’s main drawcard, Dubrovnik’s mighty city walls and its courteous spirit will swiftly transport you back in time to when this was an independent republic which successfully rivaled the Venetian Republic. Its outpost is your next stop, with your journey over interrupted only by a refreshing dip on the Elaphite Islands. You’ll know Korčula** was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town’s facades and gates, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will get see anywhere on the Adriatic coast. Overnight in Korčula. *Dubrovnik town tour with a coach transfer from Dubrovnik port (Gruz) to the Old town – optional walking tour package *Korčula town walking tour – optional walking tour package.

Day 3

Korčula – Pučišća (Island of Brač) – Omiš

Breakfast is served over the stunning views of the playfully dispersed archipelago of Korčula, and followed by a scenic sail around the tips of Pelješac peninsula and Hvar Island, perhaps even a refreshing dip along the way. Stop to visit the homeland of ‘the Croatian marble’, the island of Brač. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the optional tour* to the still-operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Once back at the mainland, get stunned by the dramatic rocks backing the lovely settlement of Omiš right at the mouth of Cetina River. Consider exploring the Cetina River canyon in a boat excursion*. Overnight in Omiš. *Stonemasonry school – optional walking tour package **Optional excursion: Cetina river

Day 4

Omiš – Split – excursion Skradin and Trogir;

When sailing along the Croatian coast, surpassing the beauty around you may seem like an impossible task. Perhaps so, but there are sites on the Croatian mainland which surely parallel it, such as the Krka River and its stunning estuary. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the guardian of the mouth of River Krka, and the gateway to its National park. The place where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes, the park is definitely worth a visit. After returning to the seaside, visit Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland. A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage, Trogir is protected by UNESCO, just like its big neighbor and your next stop, the town of Split. Explore on your own or join our optional walking tour* to learn about the Diocletian’s Palace, once the Roman Emperor’s retirement estate and today a lively city center. Whatever you do, make sure to take it easy in Split, as after all, that is the true highlight of local living. Dinner on board and overnight in Split. *Split Walking Tour – optional walking tour package.

Day 5

Split – Hvar (Island of Hvar) – Vela Luka (Island of Korčula)

In a splash of islands lined up directly across from Split, Hvar is the one known for purple lavender fields, potent red wines and glitzy jet-set feasts along starlit waterfronts. Especially so at its prime hotspot, the Old Town of Hvar, also the home of the oldest theatre in Europe and organized tourism in Croatia! Join an optional walking tour* to learn more about the interesting history and starry present of the town and the island, before sailing over for a swim at the beautiful archipelago of Pakleni Otoci.

Day 6

Vela Luka (Island of Korčula) – Pomena (Island of Mljet) – Slano

Your captain will choose a secluded bay to hop in the sea and start the day. Surrounded in deep green forests which earned Korčula its name and fame, meditate upon the sound of crickets and silence as you immerse yourself in the essence of this region: the crystal blue sea. Then continue to another green island, this time Mljet. The national park on the island is the home of two salty lakes connected with by a small channel with the sea. Nature lovers will get a kick from hiking or cycling here, possibly even kayaking over to the small inlet in the center of the lake, charming with its 12th-century Monastery of St. Mary. Alternatively, join our optional excursion* – but whatever you do, do not miss out on Mljet! Spend the evening in the small settlement of Slano on the mainland, once adored by Dubrovnik sea captains. Why becomes self-evident as soon as you take your first stroll along the waterfront. **Optional excursion: Mljet National Park, free time in the National park.

Day 7

Slano – Dubrovnik

In vicinity of Slano, the petite town of Ston claims its fame for many things gourmand: strong wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. Our optional tour the Taste of Dalmatia* highlights all these treasures, but you can also just relax in Slano before sailing out to Dubrovnik. Midway, a dip on Lopud Island gets you up and ready to join an optional guided tour* of Dubrovnik Old Town. Surrounded in immense city walls, as if in a universe of its own, the world-famous facades line up as you walk the same streets like the cast and crews of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. Enjoy an evening of romance, glitz and glam, as you will be staying in Dubrovnik overnight. **Optional excursion: Taste of Dalmatia.

From Iceland to Norway

Join us for a journey from Iceland to Norway, visiting isolated islands and remote regions. Aboard the Silver Cloud, and as weather permits on her Zodiacs, go past spectacular bird cliffs in Iceland and the Norwegian Archipelago of Svalbard, marvelling at the multitude of puffins, guillemots and gulls that congregate to nest. While in Iceland, explore the area around Lake Myvatn to see how geology plays an important factor in Iceland’s daily life, or go whale-watching along Iceland’s northern coast. In Svalbard, encounter fascinating landscapes, mountains, fjords and glaciers while looking for walrus and polar bears. Throughout the voyage, learn about the geology, wildlife, botany and history of this spectacular area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable on board Expedition Team.

Highlights

Latrabjarg Cliffs, Iceland – Silver Cloud will sail next to one of Europe’s largest bird cliffs and a truly stunning sight to experience. The 14 kilometer cliff is covered with tens of thousands of Atlantic Puffins, Northern Gannets, Razorbills and guillemots that perch there safely from predators. • Dyjandi, Iceland – Iceland is well-known for its dazzling waterfalls, and the Dyjandi is recognized as one of the country’s most impressive and majestic. Hike past 6 other spectacular waterfalls to reach Dyjandi, the Westfjords’ biggest at 100 feet wide, with a 330-foot tumble into the fjord below. Dyjandi means the thundering one, named for its enormous sound. • Vigur Island, Iceland – Visit the tiny and private island to see how Icelanders collect eider down. The island is also home to Atlantic Puffins and Arctic Terns, which can be seen while walking across the island. After the walk enjoy home-baked cakes and cookies made by Vigur Island owners. Akureyri, Iceland –Akureyri is the gateway to Lake Myvatn (Midges Lake). The lake is part of a protected nature reserve and many birds (including thirteen species of ducks) frequent the surrounding wetlands. Nature’s power is plainly displayed in Namafjall’s geothermal springs, as well as on a walk along the lake’s shore onto some pseudo-craters, through the massive, often unusual lava formations of Dimmuborgir. • Jan Mayen, Norway – With permission from the Norwegian authorities and the right weather conditions, we will make a landing at this rarely visited outpost to visit the research and weather station. Walks to the station and beyond will give us a bird’s-eye view of the meteorological station and of the long black sandy eastern shore of the island. From the water the shear mass of Jan Mayen is impressive and is a known feeding ground for whales of several species. • Svalbard Northern Region, Norway – Silver Cloud will be cruising past majestic red Devonian sandstone mountains to reach the end of Liefdefjorden, for a Zodiac cruise along the 5-kilometer-long front of Monacobreen and the neighbouring Seligerbreen. This is a great place to look for seals, Black-legged Kittiwakes and Ivory Gulls.With the reinforced hull of Silver Cloud, we have the perfect platform to search for walrus and polar bears as we devote time to explore the pack ice north of Spitsbergen. Conditions permitting, we might head out in the Zodiacs for an even closer look. • Svalbard Southern Region, Norway – In Svalbard we will enter fjords, searching the ice and the shores for seabirds, walruses, seals, and polar bears. Shore walks and Zodiac landings will bring us up close to these mystical wintry settings. The Expedition Leader and Captain will determine Silver Cloud’s best course, depending on changing weather, ice conditions and the wildlife we encounter. • Bear Island, Norway – Close to 9 kilometres of cliffs are home to some of the largest bird colonies of the Northern Hemisphere. Common Guillemots, Brünnich’s Guillemots, Little Auks, Black-legged Kittiwakes, Northern Fulmars, and Glaucous Gulls are all found along the cliff. Other species have been observed, including Atlantic Puffins and even Northern Gannets. Weather depending, we will take the Zodiacs to explore the rugged coastline. Kayaking –Weather permitting, the Silver Cloud offers the opportunity to kayak in a small group under the guidance of certified kayak instructors. These special excursions are a chance to appreciate the wilds of the Arctic in silence. • Meet the owners of Vigur Island to learn about Eider Duck farming. Enjoy their company over a cup of tea or coffee and home-baked cookies and cakes. • Wildlife Watch List: Polar bear, Svalbard reindeer and Arctic fox, bearded seals, grey seals, harbour seal, ringed seal, and walrus. Humpback whales, Minke whales, beluga whales, and harbour porpoises.

Dubrovnik – Slano

Enjoy a hearty breakfast before joining in an optional guided tour* of Dubrovnik Old Town. Surrounded in immense city walls, as if in a universe of its own, the world-famous Gothic and baroque facades line up as you walk the same streets like the cast and crews of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. The merchant power equal to the one of Venetian Republic, Dubrovnik was a large seafaring force. Dubrovnik nobility and captains fancied the small town of Slano for their summer estates and you will understand why as soon as you arrive in the afternoon. Explore this quaint seaside settlement on your own or join our optional tour** to the town of Ston, known for many things gourmand: potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. *Dubrovnik town tour with a coach transfer from Dubrovnik port (Gruz) to the Old town – optional walking tour package **Optional excursion: Taste of Dalmatia

Mljet – Korčula

Breakfasts on Agape Rose are always served with a view. Enjoy the start of your day before arriving to the green island of Mljet.

Alternatively, join our optional excursion – but whatever you do, do not pass on setting foot on Mljet! After a refreshing dip along the way, visit Korčula. You’ll know Korčula was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town’s facades and gates, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will get see anywhere on the Adriatic coast. The alleged home of the world renowned traveler Marco Polo is bound to charm you whether you explore it on your own or in an optional walking tour*.

In the afternoon, hop over to the island of Vis, the most distant from the coast of all inhabited islands in Croatia. Closed off to the public for the larger part of the 20th century for its role as an important Yugoslav military base, Vis and its nature remain incredibly preserved even today. Dinner onboard and overnight in Vis. *Hvar walking tour – optional walking tour package

Day 5

Vis – Šibenik

You will wake up to views of Vis town waterfront, comprised of the newer, 19th-century harbor area, and the historic, medieval corner.

Join an optional guided tour* to get insight into the tumultuous history of Vis before setting sail towards the mainland. Arriving to Šibenik, snatch a spot on the deck, as its stone waterfront, nestled beneath the impressive St. Michael fort, remains a sight to behold. An optional walking tour* will introduce you to Šibenik’s great claim to Renaissance – both the one centuries ago, when the town’s Cathedral of St. James was constructed, and the present day, with the town known as one of Croatia’s upcoming gems. Experience its stone alleys and great cuisine in an evening on your own. Overnight in Šibenik. *Walking tour of Šibenik – optional walking tour package **Optional excursion: Vis

Day 6

Šibenik – Krka – Skradin – Split

When sailing along the Croatian coast, surpassing the beauty around you may seem like an impossible task. Perhaps so, but there are sites on the Croatian mainland which surely parallel it, such as the Krka River and its stunning estuary. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin the small town of Skradin, the guardian of the mouth of River Krka, and the gateway to its National park. The place where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes, the park is definitely worth a visit before heading back to the seaside to visit the gem of Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland. A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage, Trogir has been protected by UNESCO, just like its big neighbor and your next stop, the town of Split. Explore on your own or join our optional * Split walking tour to learn about the Diocletian’s Palace, once the Roman Emperor’s retirement estate and today a lively city center.

Day 7

Split – Pučišća – Omiš

As you wave Split and its easy-going spirit goodbye, you’ll be heading to one of the neighboring islands, Brač, known as the homeland of ‘the Croatian marble’. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the optional tour* to the still-operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Once back at the mainland, get stunned by the dramatic karst rocks backing the lovely settlement of Omiš, right at the mouth of Cetina River. Consider exploring the Cetina River canyon in a boat excursion*. Overnight in Omiš. *Stonemasonry School in Pucisca – optional walking tour package **Optional excursion: Cetina river

At 12:00 we will start our cruise to Omiš, ancient town with city walls, fortresses and stone churches located at the delta of Cetina River with its wonderful beaches.

After Omiš we will cruise across the Brač channel to continue towards Pučišća, the biggest village on the island of Brač. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća with its spectacular irregularity of the steep-sided natural harbour, its authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience; the fjord like inlet meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills to join those quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća Quarry was exploited in the Antiquity; the reopening of the quarry took place in 1455, unused since Roman times. It was from this quarry that stone was excavated to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, The Parliament house in Vienna and many other famous buildings all over the world. The only Stonemasonry school in Croatia is located in Pučišća where students carve sculptures from Brač limestone with traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries.

We start our day with morning cruise towards Island Bisevo with its Blue cave. The cave has its own natural entrance which is located below sea level, which required that it visitors dive deeply only to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. This natural phenomenon creates a magical effect of deep blue and shiny silver, mystifying her visitors. However, sometimes High Waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit, and this is a reason why entrance fees should be paid on the spot – if we have luck to visit it! We will dock in Vis. Lunch. Vis is a pearl among Croatian Adriatic islands, left untouched by the development of tourism for so many years - due to its strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for many years.

It is also a scene for many exotic cars that are owned by international celebrities and wealthy owners that also own large mega yachts. Our local agent tells us that SeaDream is the only commercial yacht that has docked in Banus.

Day 1

Petropavlovsk - Kamtchatski

Petropavlovsk, the oldest town in the Russian Far East, was established in October 1740, when the ships Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul, captained by Vitus Jonassen Bering, the Danish explorer working for the Russian Navy, first entered the bay. The Military Glory Museum, found in the town centre, is the most important in all of northern Russia. Keep your camera at the ready, though, as nearby is the picturesque Petrovskaya Hill, which also has some surprises in store for you - don’t forget to admire the sumptuous views across the Bay of Avacha from its summit. The bay’s circular shape creates a natural protection against the impetuous wind, all the while providing ships with easy access into port.

Day 2

At sea

During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness centre. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the PONANT photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observer marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.

Day 3

Attu Island, Aleutian Islands

Located at the western edge of the Aleutian Islands, Attu Island, belonging to the Near Islands group, also represents the westernmost part of the United States. Caught in a vice between the Bering Sea and the North Pacific Ocean, it has to contend with a difficult climate, characterised by storms and often violent winds. During the Second World War, it was the scene of a forgotten battle. In June 1942, the Japanese landed on the island in order to occupy it. On 11 May 1943, it was the Americans’ turn to disembark on Attu and drive out their enemy after a fierce battle lasting several days that left very few survivors on the Japanese side.

Day 4

Kiska Island & Davidof Island

Kiska belongs to the Rat Islands group, located to the west of the Aleutian Islands. It is home to a cone-shaped active volcano, culminating at over 1,200 metres. Along with Attu Island, some kilometres further west, it makes up the only two American territories to have been occupied by the Japanese during the Second World War. During the summer of 1943, American troops disembarked in order to bring this enemy occupation to an end. They discovered, to their surprise, that the Japanese had already fled the island, under the cover of bad weather.
We invite you to discover Davidof Island, a tiny lost island to the west of the Aleutians. Davidof is part of the Rat Islands, a volcanic archipelago. Between the end of the 18th century and the very beginning of the 21st century, rats were the main occupants of these islands, which are now believed to be completely rodent-free. The archipelago, located on the boundary of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates, is in an area of very high seismic activity.

Day 5

Adak Island

Set off to discover Adak Island, in the Aleutian Islands. Located to the west of the Andreanof archipelago, this mountainous and volcanic treeless island, where strong winds and fog are often the order of the day, shows many traces of its past. During the Second World War, the American military set up an airbase there in order to repel the Japanese. Many remnants of this era (shells, abandoned infrastructures, fire hydrants, bunkers) are still visible today. The town of Adak, located to the north of the island, is considered the southernmost city in Alaska. It has seen its population diminish significantly since the military left at the end of the 1990s and lives essentially from fishing.

Day 6

At sea

Day 7

Dutch Harbor, Unalaska

During your cruise, discover an exceptional site: Unalaska Island and its port, Dutch Harbor. Located between the Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea, on the Aleutian Islands, Dutch Harbor is the only deep water port in the archipelago. As for the island itself, it offers you unique landscapes: volcanic summits swept by the wind and surrounded by the sea, lush green valleys, sometimes covered with bright summer flowers, sometimes with deep winter snow… Unalaska is not only an island with astonishing nature and very varied wildlife, it is also rich in history, where ancient indigenous cultures and remains from World War II can be seen and their tales be told.

Day 8

Unga Island, Alaska

After a short Zodiac® journey between the rocks in the company of your naturalist-guides, you will land in a former village of which many vestiges remain: run-down wooden houses scattered around a flowery meadow, a church with crumbling walls but a roof that still stands, a cemetery… Originally called Ougnagok by the Aleuts, this small hamlet, which was home to some 100 inhabitants in the 19th century, was renamed Delarof, after Evstratii Ivanovich Delarov. While working for the Shelikhov-Golikov Company, he was the first Greek mariner to discover the Aleutian Islands. These days, this small ghost-village now overrun by willowherb is called Unga.

Day 9

Geographic Harbor & Hidden Harbor, Kinak Bay

Here you are in the heart of Katmai National Park and Preserve. Here, the rocky cliffs are punctuated with white marks. These are the remains of ash deposits that accumulated following a volcanic eruption in the past. Board your Zodiac® and, a little further south, explore every part of Geographic Harbor and its tall cliffs covered in vegetation and plunging into the sea. Along the sandy beach, grizzly bears improvise hunting sessions, in search of fish and clams. In the thickets, these omnivores eat berries, roots and grasses. Brown bears are at home here and the presence of humans doesn’t seem to disturb them. This makes for a fascinating and unforgettable show. In the heart of the stunning Katmai nature reserve, renowned for its bewitching landscapes of rivers and lakes, discover Kinak Bay. This bay is more sheltered than Geographic Harbor. At the end of a narrow passage where strong currents flow, it leads to a few small beaches that are each more charming than the next. You have arrived at Hidden Harbor. Stay alert: a large colony of brown bears reigns here. They love to wander along the coast and dip their paws in the clear currents in the hope of catching a salmon. As for the bear cubs, they prefer to catch seabirds on the beach. Look up and you might spot two or three bald eagles, proudly perched on the cliffs.

Day 10

Holgate Glacier

Exceptional scenery surrounds you. You are in Aialik Bay, in the heart of a gigantic fjord located in Kenai Fjords National Park. Your ship is heading towards the vertiginous slopes of Holgate Glacier, which is still very active. Regularly, blocks of ice break free from its snout and crash into the water. This phenomenon, called calving, is magnificent to witness. During your Zodiac® outing, you will get closer to this ever-fascinating world of ice. In this mineral setting, sea otters and spotted seals will observe you as they bask in the golden rays of sunshine, while gulls and seagulls feast on fish trapped by the ebbing tide.

Day 11

Tsaa fjord, Icy Bay, Alaska

Formed by the retreat of the Guyot, Yahtse and Tyndall glaciers over the past 100 years, Icy Bay is one of those timeless places where silence reigns supreme. Let yourself be enthralled by landscapes of breathtaking beauty, enhanced by magnificent views over the Saint Elias Mountains, visible in the background. The bay, several kilometres wide, is often scattered with icebergs sliding on clear and deep waters. It will let you access several sounds, among which are the Tsaa fjord, very close to the Guyot glacier. Many marine mammals and sea birds have chosen to live on this territory with very few visitors in the south of Alaska, where one can sometimes see bear paw prints on the sand.

Day 12

Inian Islands & Elfin Cove, Alaska

Located in the heart of the fresh waters of the Icy Strait, between Chicagof Island and the Glacier Bay National Park, the Inian Islands offer a concentration of nature in its raw state. This small group of picturesque islands boasts a particularly rich ecosystem, on land as in the sea. Covered in dense and humid forests, the islands bravely endure the action of the wind and the tides in order to offer their visitors a unique spectacle. During your Zodiac® outing, you will probably be welcomed by a cacophonous orchestra of Steller sea lions. From the rocky islets, they dive into the sea to treat themselves to fresh salmon. Seagulls, Tridactyl gulls, cormorants and sea otters complete this happy scene.
At the tip of an island in the Alexander Archipelago, not far from the Canadian border, peaceful Elfin Cove shelters a fishing community that’s only linked to the rest of the world by the sea. There is just a dozen wooden houses, a long wooden pontoon and a tiny port surrounded by crystalline waters… It doesn’t get any quainter than this. Choose from a network of hiking paths that weave through a pristine forest, to lead you to secret beaches where silence reigns. The wonders of the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, accessible by a short boat trip, are many.

Day 13

Juneau

Disembarkation.
In 1880, gold diggers flocked here, and it didn't take long before Juneau was singled out, getting itself a solid reputation and henceforth becoming the capital of Alaska. Along the Gastineau Strait, in the heart of the spectacular Inside Passage, the 31,000 or so inhabitants of Juneau enjoy some of the world’s most incredible fauna and scenery every day of their lives. Perhaps you’ll even be able to watch the antics of humpback whales against a backdrop of majestic glaciers. Culture and shopping are certainly not lacking; the city is full of places to experience, enjoy and relax in.

Overview

Join a fabulous sea journey between Russia and Alaska, along the Pacific Ring of Fire. Board Le Soléal for a unique 13-day expedition cruise and prepare to be captivated by the beauty of the Aleutian Islands.
