Explore beautiful Alaska next summer with Silversea on this amazing sailing:
July 11, 2016 | 12 Days
In 1732, Peter the Great commissioned Vitus Bering to map the entire coastline of Northeast Asia and to determine conclusively whether a land bridge existed to the New World. It was the largest and most expensive expedition the world had ever seen, and so too, this Northern Expedition can only be described in superlatives. Following partly in Bering’s path, it will reach the rarely visited Chukotka, the Pribilofs, the Aleutian Islands, and Kodiak –the only American landfall of his expedition. Huge populations of nesting seabirds will be seen. Sailing in July, it will take full advantage of the mid-summer sun, travelling on nature’s terms. For the adventure traveler, this is one of the world’s great journeys, an expedition that beckons nature lovers and the intrepid explorer within.
