Your Itinerary   Cruise ID: 118506F


Experience Canada's autumn splendour on a spectacular fly-cruise that will introduce you to the ruler of the ice: the polar bear.

Fly into New York on a direct flight before transferring to a five-star hotel for a one night stay. From here, you will transfer to port and embark Silversea's stunning cruise ship, Silver Wind, for a breath-taking voyage through some of the most stunning scenery in the world.

Your first stop is Newport, Rhode Island: the perfect introduction to this region's fiery spectrum of autumn colour. 'Fall' here is characterised by the transformation of verdant trees into turmeric, saffron, cayenne and paprika totems of decadent decay. From here you will port in Boston, where history, culture and a cosmopolitan atmosphere create an unrivalled buzz. Next is Bar Harbor, Maine: the artistic, culinary, and social centre of Mount Desert Island. After leaving Bar Harbor you will reach the dramatic scenery of Nova Scotia, taking in Halifax and Sydney; both hip, historic and dominated by yet more stunning autumn foliage. Bras d'Or Lake, in Sydney, is the perfect place to admire it.

After a spell in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island you will reach Quebec, which boasts that perfect balance of history, culture and natural beauty. Stroll beautiful beaches in Spet-Iles, cruise through Saguenay Fjord in Tadoussac and explore the only walled city north of Mexico: Quebec City. Your luxury cruise ends in Montreal, where you will stay for two nights before flying to Winnipeg and joining your adventure specialist for your Ice Bear Adventure.

Now, the real adventure begins, as you fly to Dymond Lake Ecolodge and begin your search for polar bears. Professionally-guided walking tours will inspire you with interesting facts and fantastic photographic opportunities, and in the evening, you will take dinner by the fire before enjoying informative lectures. Here, you can also experience a dog-sledding tour, and take a tundra buggy® ride across the ice for yet more amazing polar bear-viewing. After six nights of epic exploration you will fly home; your camera full and your head spinning with truly unforgettable memories.

19 October 2018 Fly direct from the UK to New York.
On arrival transfer to a 5-star hotel for a 1-night stay.
20 October 2018 Transfer from the hotel to the port and embark Silver Wind.
21 October 2018 Newport, Rhode Island, USA.
Here, colonial architecture abounds and there is something to see at every turn - not least the spectacular autumn foliage. Explore the opulent summer houses along cliff-top Bellevue Ave, witness Newport's maritime roots as you watch yachts head out into the bay, and visit America’s oldest Jewish house of worship, Touro Synagogue.
22 October 2018 Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
There is history and culture around every bend in Boston. Skyscrapers nestle next to historic hotels while modern marketplaces line the antique cobblestone streets. But to Bostonians, living in a city that blends yesterday and today is just another day in beloved Beantown.
23 October 2018 Bar Harbor, Maine, USA.
A resort town since the 19th century, Bar Harbor is the artistic, culinary and social centre of Mount Desert Island. It also serves visitors to Acadia National Park with inns, motels and restaurants. Around the turn of the last century the island was known as the summer haven of the very rich because of its cool breezes. The wealthy built lavish mansions throughout the island, many of which were destroyed in a huge fire that devastated the island in 1947, but many of those that survived have been converted into businesses. Shops are clustered along Main, Mount Desert, and Cottage streets. Take a stroll down West Street, a National Historic District, where you can see some fine old houses. The island and the surrounding Gulf of Maine are home to a great variety of wildlife: whales, seals, eagles, falcons, ospreys and puffins (though not right offshore here), and forest dwellers such as deer, foxes, coyotes, and beavers.
24 October 2018 Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canda.
Halifax’s natural harbour is the second largest in the world after Sydney, Australia’s. The old city manages to feel both hip and historic. Previous generations had the foresight to preserve much of it, culturally as well as architecturally, yet students from five local universities keep it from being stuffy. In addition to the energetic arts-and-entertainment scene the students help create, visitors also benefit from enviable dining, shopping, and museum-hopping options. There is easy access to the water, too, and despite being the focal point of a busy commercial port, Halifax Harbour doubles as a playground. It is a place where container ships, commuter ferries, cruise ships and tour boats compete for space, and where workaday tugs and fishing vessels tie up beside glitzy yachts. Like Halifax as a whole, the harbour represents a blend of the traditional and the contemporary.
25 October 2018 Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Sydney has a revitalised waterfront and smattering of Loyalist-era buildings that appeal to visitors. Moreover, it offers convenient access to popular attractions in the region, like the Miner’s Museum in nearby Glace Bay (named for the glace, or ice, that fills its harbour in winter), the Fortress at Louisbourg, and beautiful Bras d'Or Lake.
26 October 2018 Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Designated as the Island capital in 1765, Charlottetown is both PEI’s oldest and largest urban centre. However, since the whole metropolitan area only has a population of about 65,000, a pleasing small-town atmosphere remains. The city is a winner appearance-wise, as well. Peppered with gingerbread-clad homes, converted warehouses, striking churches and monumental government buildings, Charlottetown’s core seems relatively unchanged from its 19th-century heyday when it hosted the conference that led to the formation of Canada. The city is understandably proud of its role as the 'Birthplace of Confederation' and, in summer, downtown streets are dotted with people dressed as personages from the past who will regale you with tales about the Confederation debate.
27 October 2018 Spet-Iles, Quebec, Canada.
Viewing the workings of this major Canadian port from a waterfront boardwalk, no one would guess this was once a quiet fishing village. The place boomed after World War II, when large companies decided Sept-Îles would make a good base for expanding northern Québec’s iron-mining industry. But all of the massive infrastructure can’t trump Mother Nature. Beautiful beaches line the coast, and the islands of an archipelago park sit just offshore. Campers and bird-watchers flock here, in part to spot the colourful beaks of the puffins.
28 October 2018 Tadoussac, Quebec, Canada.
Sitting on the natural junction where the River Saguenay unloads into the massive Saint Lawrence, a visit to strategically located Tadoussac leaves you fantastically placed to explore some of Quebec's finest history, wildlife and scenery. Sail a little further up the Saguenay and you will be confronted by the glorious Saguenay Fjord, as you cruise through verdant hills of dense forestry and past steep cliffs. Or, alternatively, sail out onto the deep waters of the Saint Lawrence river, where you can spot the surface parting, as the world's largest animals - blue whales - slowly emerge from the depths to gulp in air. With a fantastic supply of krill to tempt the whales, you can even spot the various species that visit from Tadoussac’s shoreline – just make sure you brush up on your whale knowledge beforehand, at the Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre. The town was the first trading post established by the French when they landed here, and it remains the oldest of the settlements still in existence. As the name suggests, Tadoussac's Old Chapel has an impressive history, and is North America's oldest wooden chapel. You wouldn't necessarily know it from the outside, however, as the charming little church gleams tidily with a fresh lick of cherry red and white paint.
29 October 2018 Quebec City, Canada.
Québec City's alluring setting atop Cape Diamond (Cap Diamant) evokes a past of high adventure, military history and exploration. This French-speaking capital city is the only walled city north of Mexico. Visitors come for the delicious and inventive cuisine, the remarkable historical continuity, and to share in the seasonal exuberance of the largest Francophone population outside France. The historic heart of this community is the Old City (Vieux-Québec), comprising the part of Upper Town (Haute-Ville) surrounded by walls and Lower Town (Basse-Ville), which spreads out at the base of the hill from Place Royale. Many sets of staircases and the popular funicular link the top of the hill with the bottom. Cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and elaborate cathedrals are charming in all seasons. The Old City earned recognition as an official UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985, thanks largely to city planners who managed to update and preserve the 400-year-old buildings and attractions without destroying what made them worth preserving. The most familiar icon of the city, Fairmont Château Frontenac, is set on the highest point in Upper Town, where it holds court over the entire city. At the confluence of the St. Lawrence and St. Charles rivers, the city's famous military fortification, La Citadelle, built in the early 19th century, remains the largest of its kind in North America. In summer, visitors should try to catch the Changing of the Guard, held every morning at 10 am; you can get much closer to the guards here than at Buckingham Palace in London. Enchanting as it is, the Old City is just a small part of the true Québec City experience. Think outside the walls and explore St-Roch, a downtown hot spot, which has artsy galleries and a bustling square. Cruise the Grande-Allée and Avenue Cartier to find a livelier part of town dotted with nightclubs and fun eateries. Or while away the hours in St-Jean-Baptiste, a neighbourhood with trendy shops and hipster hangouts.
30 October 2018 Montreal, Canada.
Disembark and transfer to a 5-star hotel for a 2-night stay.
This hotbed of culture is the perfect place to lose yourself in the arts, culinary delights and rows upon rows of flaming autumn trees. The city's food scene is spectacular, and the dishes not to be missed include Montréal brims with temples dedicated to Kamouraska lamb, Arctic char and, of course, poutine (fries smothered in cheese curds and gravy). Montreal is also an architectural gem: 18th Century facades, heritage churches and breath-taking basilicas line the streets; rubbing shoulders with contemporary skyscrapers.
01 November 2018 Transfer from the hotel to the airport for a direct flight to Winnipeg.
On arrival make your own way to Grand Winnipeg Airport Hotel by Lakeview for 1 night. This evening, join your adventure specialist and the rest of the group for dinner.
02 November 2018 Fly to Dymond Lake Ecolodge via Churchill.
Fly to Churchill and then join a chartered fixedwing flight to Dymond Lake Ecolodge where you will stay for 3 nights. The lodge is located 30km south-east of Churchill on the Hudson Bay. With such a remote location and no other human presence within 16km, it provides superb wildlife spotting opportunities, with an abundance of polar bears and other wildlife in the area. Enjoy a hike along the rugged coastline and an interpretive slideshow featuring the wildlife of Hudson Bay.
03 & 04 November 2018 After breakfast, take morning walking tours for plenty of polar bear viewing and photograph opportunities. You will be guided by professional and knowledgeable tour leaders who will help you get the best out of your experience. Lunch is served in the lodge, which has large picture windows; you can sometimes see inquisitive polar bears roaming nearby. Evening meals are around the central fireplace and your guiding team will give informative lectures and slide presentations. During the night, you may be woken if one of the night watchmen spots a nocturnal visit from a polar bear or displays of the phenomenal Northern Lights.
05 November 2018 After breakfast, fly to Churchill where you will have free time to explore or take optional dog sledding or helicopter excursions. Dinner will be at one of the local restaurants.
06 November 2018 This morning, travel across the tundra in a tundra buggy® for more polar bear viewing. Evening flight to Winnipeg and stay overnight at the Grand Hotel Winnipeg Airport Hotel by Lakeview.
07 November 2018 Make your own way to the airport for an overnight flight to the UK.
