Intrepid adventurers looking for the most epic travel itinerary yet should keep an eye on Silversea's first-ever Uncharted World Tour. With chances to see glaciers, remote tropical archipelagos, and experience a delicious Icelandic feast in Kjarnaskógur Forest, this trip is a dream for any adventure traveler.
Setting sail in January 2021, the luxury adventure cruise will be "exploring the secrets of the world", visiting six continents, 107 ports, and 30 countries, in 167 days. Silversea describes the expedition as having been designed to "host the pioneers of beauty, guests who want to see the world raw and unfiltered, unafraid of its purest form." Fair warning, it's wanderlust-inducing enough to read the full itinerary...
The once-in-a-lifetime journey will set off on the January 30, 2021 in Ushuaia (pronounced oo-swy-ah) in Argentina's southern tip, close to the South Pole, continuing through to the Antarctic Peninsula's Drake Passage, onto Chilean fjords and a few stops in Chile, continuing from Robinson Crusoe Island and Easter Island, before spending a few days at sea en route to French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Samoa, and Fiji until March 11 .
From Fiji, the ship makes its way to the shores of the Solomon Islands, Papa New Guinea, and Australia for excursions such as scuba diving, snorkeling trips, parasailing, scenic flights, and rain-forest treks. After a few stops in Australia, Indonesia, and Singapore you'll make your way to the lush landscapes of Galle and Colombo in Sri Lanka and Cochin and Mormugao (Goa) in India before setting sail for Oman, and Egypt.
That takes travelers to May 31, 2021, the best time to visit Europe. The European leg of the journey includes Athens, Seville, London, Italy, and the UK's Isles of Scilly, ending this leg in Lisbon.
The trip ends by going from Lisbon to Reykjavik, and finally, to its final stop in Tromsø, Norway on July 16, 2021.
There will be featured speakers including astronomers, filmmakers, and archeologists to enhance the off-ship experiences and unique events throughout, such as a private outdoor dinner complete with Vikings in authentic costumes, flickering lights from oil lamps, and the smell of smoke from the campfire in Iceland's Kjarnaskógur Forest.
For those interested, fares start at $99,000 per guest for travelers who stay in the ship's Vista Suite and goes up to $404,000 for the two-bedroom Owner's Suite. All rooms come with butler service, a walk-in wardrobe, plush bathrobes, and choice of pillows.
And to make sure you never miss out on the scenery, all cabins come with an ocean view.
