Want to see evolution in action and experience the wild world of the rainforest? Sailing on-board some of Silversea’s most stunning ships, cruises to the Galapagos Islands and South America take in some of this region’s most captivating highlights.
From iconic wildlife to prehistoric landscapes, Galapagos and South American expedition cruises will transport you back in time.
The Galapagos is a living museum; a shrine to the wonders of evolution in one of the most volcanically active places on Earth. Darwin’s finches flit from tree to tree as you trek around the island in search of indigenous wildlife. Giant tortoises lumber across the landscape while charismatic sea lions bask on beaches soaked in sunshine. Don’t be surprised if you see a rock move – the craggy Galapagos coastline is so laden with marine iguanas that it seems to shift and change.
Of course, Galapagos Island cruises aren’t just about life on the surface. Dive under the azure blue waves on snorkelling explorations of the regions marine life, and embark on epic expeditions into natural underground lava tunnels rendered technicolour by furious magma flows.
In South America, countries overflow with ancient history and stunning landscapes. Vast mountain ranges and open plains sit alongside rainforests rich in wildlife, and centuries-old cultures permeate the fabric of every town, city and village.
Uncover the colourful history of Chile’s native people before exploring nature on a grand scale. Llamas and alpacas tread precarious mountain slopes in Peru, while elusive puma steal through their territories like thieves in the night. Nature is at the heart of South America; its jungles alive with hummingbirds, spider monkeys, sloths and more; your personal wildlife documentary.
