Silversea's Silver Explorer Completes First-Ever Northwest Passage Journey

Silversea's 132-guest Silver Explorer successfully completed the company's first-ever journey through the Northwest Passage.

The 23-day voyage commenced in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland on Aug. 9 and concluded in Nome, Alaska on Sept. 1. It covered a distance of nearly 3,500 nautical miles, following a route through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago similar to Roald Amundsen's east-to-west expedition of 1903 to 1906, the first successful navigation by boat through the passage.

Silversea is a member of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), dedicated to managing environmentally friendly and safe expedition cruising in the Arctic.
