Reykjavik

Fly from the UK to Reykjavik. On arrival make your way to the port and embark Silver Shadow.

The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland's flag are manifested by the ice and snow of its glaciers, the hot mud pools, geysers and glowing lava flows in the country's volcanic regions. The island's settlement dates back to 874 when a Norwegian named Ingolf Arnarson arrived at present-day Reykjavik. In 930, the settlers formed a legislature, the Alting, which was the beginning of the Commonwealth of Iceland. From the 10th to the 14th centuries, Iceland developed a literary form, the Icelandic Saga, which spread throughout the Nordic culture and into the English and German languages. It was used to spin stories of the gods, record historic events and glorify heroes. As Iceland's capital and main center of the country's population, the city of Reykjavik is a fascinating blend of the traditional and modernism. Just as Iceland is a unique country – rugged and remote, yet technically advanced and enjoying Nordic standards of affluence – Reykjavik is a highly unusual capital city. It dominates the life of Iceland in almost every way. More than half of the country's total population of 270,000 is living in and around the capital, and the economy of the entire nation depends on Reykjavik. Nearly 60 percent of Iceland's imports are received and distributed, and 40 percent of the country's exports are loaded for shipment via the port of Reykjavik. It is also the headquarters of what is probably the world's most advanced seafood industry, which counts for Iceland's number one export.

At Sea

Calling all skywatchers, umbraphiles and astronomers! Extremely rare and very exciting, a full solar eclipse is a bucket list experience if ever there was one. Scheduled for 4th December, 2021 the next eclipse will take place only in Antarctica and we will be positioned in the small path of totality for maximum effect. This experience is not available for the average cruisers; imagine being surrounded by brilliant light one minute, then complete blackout the next, before enjoying the mysterious shadow-play as we wind back to the blinding white of Antarctica. Watch how the curious wildlife will react to the eclipse, making sure to note their behaviour and let the onboard naturalist know. Other onboard expedition staff will share their insightful knowledge in order to help you gain a better understanding of this phenomenal phenomenon. As if a trip to the seventh continent was not special enough!

Narsarsuaq, Greenland

With average yearly temperatures of 5?C and a population of just 150, to say that Narsarsuaq is off the beaten track is no understatement. Yet, what this little Greenlandic village might lack in size is more than made up for in big, bold scenery, generous wildlife and a surprisingly thriving tourism scene. Greenland’s leitmotivs of thrilling landscape and Viking history are majestically illustrated in Narsarsuaq. Jagged mountains plunge into glacier-dotted fjords, wildflower-sprinkled meadows stretch as far as the eye can see, while golden light bathes it all. View less Take silent filled hikes or kayak excursions to really explore what the little village’s surroundings have to offer, occasionally scanning the skies for the elusive white-tailed eagle. The tangible quietness of Narsarsuaq is in great contrast to its bold and riotous Viking history. Norse Vikings, including the infamous Erik the Red, settled in the vicinity over a thousand years ago (985 AD). Their long and bloody history is well documented and ruins can be found in nearby Qassiarsuk, Igaliku, and Hvalsey. Narsarsuaq’s placement in the Atlantic Ocean between Canada and mainland Europe made the little settlement a hub for U.S. activity during WWII. In 1941, the U.S. built an air force base (name Blue West One or Bluie) which served the Allies as a stepping stone to the battlegrounds. A 600-bed hospital (which was later increased to 1,000 beds) was also built to accommodate casualties from the D-Day landings and later, the Korean War.

L'Anse Aux Meadows

L’Anse aux Meadows is a National Historic Site in Newfoundland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Found at the very northern end of the Great Northern Peninsula, the area shows archaeological evidence of eight timber-framed turf structures, a complete Norse settlement established more than 1,000 years ago similar to those found in Greenland and Iceland. It still is the only authenticated Norse site in North America and indicates the first European presence in the New World. The original site has been reburied after excavations to ensure protection from deterioration. View less Replicas of Norse houses, a workshop, a boat shed and an old Norse ship have been set up at Norstead a few hundred meters northeast of the original site.

Corner Brook, Newfoundland

"Plunge into Corner Brook’s thrilling land of adventure and outdoor exploration, as you roam an island of pine-fresh scents, soaring mountains and roaring rapids tumbling down from the Appalachian Mountains. Corner Brook is the gateway to the some of the wildest wonders of Newfoundland’s West Coast – from epic Viking trails, which cut across the rugged coastline, to waters washed blue by icebergs and whales. Sat on the banks of the Humber River’s salmon-blessed waters, Corner Brook is somewhat dominated by its giant paper mill, but its historic inns pin down a far quainter side. Chances are you’ll be escaping the city’s limits to explore the natural wonders before long anyway, and adrenaline lovers are primed for a fix in the Humber Valley, where zip lines are strung out between mountainsides. White-water river rafting here offers exhilarating rides through the scenery, as you gulp down lashings of Canada’s fresh air while negotiating frothing flows. Pick your way across the nearby Gros Morne National Park with its tectonic Tablelands and etched fjord, and follow the winding Captain Cook trail, which meanders along 30 miles of coastline. You can pluck wild berries, chat to friendly locals, and soak in the raw natural seascapes along every mile. After all of that hiking and wilding, Corner Brook will warm you with hearty Newfoundland cuisine like fried cod tongues, cold water lobster, and partridgeberry jam. Giants move through the waters of Newfoundland, and whether it’s blue whales or wandering icebergs, extraordinary natural sights are everywhere. Drink in the bergs – quite literally. Local brewers chip ancient frozen water to make crisp pale beers, made using some of the cleanest waters anywhere in the world."

Havere St.Pierre

"The otherworldly, limestone structures of the Mingan Archipelago await at Havre St. Pierre, Quebec's most northerly call. Perched on the northern shore of the mighty St Lawrence River's gaping jaws - and looking out across the vast stretch of water to the distant Anticosti Island - where white-tailed deer stalk dense forests - Havre St. Pierre is a feast of staggering scenery and diverse wildlife. View less The Mingan Archipelago's monolith treasures have been carefully, painstakingly sculpted by Mother Nature's hand - using ocean, wind and ice erosion to create towering rock outcrops, which stand improbably counterweighted and precariously balanced over the waters. Sail between the scattered array of islands and formations, and keep your eyes peeled - you may be joined by pods of friendly minke whales as you weave between skerries and rocky isles. Look out for eagles soaring overhead too, and the colourful puffins which nest on the sheer cliffs. Back at Havre St. Pierre, stroll isolated river beaches, and wander the wooden boardwalk to soak in panoramas of the world's largest estuary - which lures the world's mightiest animal, the blue whale, to feast in its krill-rich depths. A walk out to the quaint lighthouse which crowns the shore is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon, or you can take some time to learn a little more about the culture and traditions of the region's Inuit people."

Quebec City

For centuries, a native Iroquois village occupied the cliff-top site of what is now Quebec City. The first permanent European settlement began in 1608 when Samuel de Champlain established a fur trading post. By 1663, New France had become a royal province, administered by a council appointed directly by the crown and answerable to the king's council in France. Long-brewing European struggles between England and France spilled over into the colonies, prompting the construction of Quebec's formidable fortifications. The Seven Years War put an end to French reign and left the city in English hands. The English successfully warded off an American attack in 1775, and for the next century Quebec quietly earned its livelihood as a center for shipbuilding and timber trade. By 1840, when it was declared the provincial capital of Lower Canada, the accessible supplies of timber had run out. The final blow came with the appearance of steamships that could travel as far as Montreal, while sailing ships found it difficult to proceed beyond Quebec City. Losing its importance as a major port, the city experienced a decline but remained a center of small industry and local government. Later years saw a tremendous rise as tourism made use of Quebec's fantastic location and appearance. Being Canada's most historic city and the only walled city in North America earned it the classification of World Heritage Treasure by UNESCO in 1985. Today, the visitor is greeted by an authentic, profoundly French city, where 95% of its half million people are French-speaking. Both parts of the city - Haute-Ville and Basse-Ville (Upper and Lower Town) - feature winding, cobbled streets flanked by 17th- and 18th-century stone houses and churches, graceful parks and squares and countless monuments. Croissants and steaming cups of coffee at sidewalk cafés conjure images and aromas of Paris. Great emphasis has been placed on Quebec nationalism; as a result the city has become a symbol of the glory of French heritage. The motto "Je me souviens" (I remember) is inscribed above the entrance to the Parliament Building and on the license plates of Quebec cars. As you come ashore, endless pleasures await you in this marvelous city.

Gaspe

Set on the rugged, windswept shores of the Saint Lawrence River in the south of Quebec lies the province of Gaspé. Like much of the surrounding region, Gaspé offers outstanding scenery, hundreds of colonies of Northern Ganets and colourful cottages perched upon rocky outposts. But, aside from the exquisite natural beauty that is commonplace in the region, Gaspé is much like its neighbours. View less It’s claim to fame is that it is named “the birthplace of Canada” as French explorer Jacques Cartier landed here on his voyage across the Atlantic in 1534. However, it is the four national parks that are found within the Gaspé peninsula that sets it apart from the crowd. The parks, including Bonaventure-Island-and-Percé-Rock and Forillon National Park (the latter of which is found entirely within Gaspé’s borders) preserve the wild beauty of its coast, and features various geological formations and phenomena dating up to 450 million years old. Carved out of the sea, cliffs and mountains, the miles of majestic landscapes are like no other place on earth. Anyone lucky enough to visit during fall will rejoice at the spectrum of colour. The famous pierced rock at Percé is another bucket list sight that should not be missed. As one of the world’s largest and most spectacular natural arches (approximate age 375 million years old), the pierced rock is one of the icons of Canadian tourism. An added attraction, particularly if you are a birder, is that the rock is a nesting place for cormorants, kittiwakes and seagulls.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

A city that thrives on a diet of music, outdoor events and ocean-faring history, Nova Scotia's capital - and Atlantic Canada's largest conurbation - oozes salt-licked charm. The star-shaped fortress of Halifax Citadel sits above the city, while down below, Halifax revolves around its bustling harbour. Here, jet-skis skid across the water and heritage ships jaunt out to scenic offshore islands. Music carries on the waterfront's breeze as summer’s events play out, while a hefty population of pubs and restaurants provides all the space required for sitting back and relaxing. View less The shorefront boardwalk invites you on a gentle stroll along the waves, wandering back through Halifax's history. The Canadian Museum of Immigration waits at Pier 21 and was the doorway to a country of opportunity for so many - with over a million immigrants taking their first footsteps into Canada here. The pier's wooden boards are dotted with cafes, craft shops and artist studios. Sail deeper into seafaring heritage at the maritime museum. As the closest city to the sinking of the Titanic, recovered victims were transported to - and many were buried - in Halifax. The story, and items from the doomed vessel, are displayed in the museum's collection. Peggy's Cove lighthouse is nearby, and this immaculate little lighthouse is one of Canada's favourite, watching out stoically over the Atlantic's waves. With rich pickings available from its coastal location, the fruits of the sea are served up in the fryers of Halifax's varied restaurants - try seared scallops and juicy mussels. Round off any meal with a buttery blueberry grunt dessert – delicious when served up warm with a dollop of melting vanilla ice cream.

New York, United States

The city comprises the central island of Manhattan along with four other boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. To many, Manhattan is New York. The 22-square-mile island is divided into the three districts of Downtown, Midtown and Upper Manhattan. There are countless museums, theaters, restaurants and parks. Many residents never get to see it all in a lifetime, so don't expect to take it all in during one visit.

Full day tour of Niagara Falls USA and Canada with lunch

The full-day tour kicks off with a private pick up from your hotel. The first tour stop is Skylon Tower – your private tour guide will share interesting facts and stories about Niagara. At Skylon Tower, you will be whisked by elevator to the observation deck, which is 520 ft. (160 meters) above the ground. Once up at the top, you will be treated to spectacular views of the city, Bridal Veil Falls, American Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and Niagara River. With your feet firmly back on the ground, we head to The Journey Behind the Falls where you will navigate through a series of tunnels to get a behind-the-scenes view of the Falls. After exploring the tunnels, there will be some time set aside to allow you to wander around, visit the vendors, and take some photos at the various lookout points. Excitement awaits at the next activity on the tour – the Hornblower Cruise.* You will step aboard a tour boat that will take you so close to the Falls that you can feel the mist on your face. Before venturing to the US side of the Falls, you will enjoy lunch at the Sheraton on the Falls.
