Half Way to Paradise

Eleven new overland adventures in some of the world's most exotic locales are among more than 60 extended mid-voyage excursions ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises will be offering in 2015. Unlike a partial-day shore tour, single- or multiple-day inland adventures offer a more intimate, in-depth and personal encounter with the local people, history, wildlife, and natural attractions that lie just beyond the ports of call.
From the soaring Andes to the glistening lakes of Patagonia, from the beaches of Polynesia to the glaciers of New Zealand, from the grasslands of Kenya to the monuments of India, Silversea's new overland adventures offer rare access to transformational places and experiences. On these exciting overland tours, participants may come face-to-face with a giant tortoise in the Galapagos, track mountain gorillas in Africa, or marvel at unique marine life from the balcony of an overwater bungalow in Polynesia.

Itineraries include a two-day Tsavo East National park Bush Walking Safari in Kenya; a six-day journey to visit the Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp in Uganda; visits to the Taj Mahal and Jaipur in India; and a chance to soar above the Unesco-listed Fiordland National Park in New Zealand, home to iconic Milford Sound. There is also a train journey to the Devil’s Nose and the cloud forests of Ecuador; a boat safari in the Galapagos Islands, and a chance to explore the spectacular scenery of the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia (pictured). The optional mid-voyage land programs feature deluxe accommodations (if overnight stays are required), all transportation, transfers, guided sightseeing, and some meals. Prices for the above-listed adventures range from US$1,899 to US$8,999 per person, based on double occupancy.
