    Im pleased to present Silversea Expeditions 2016 voyages aboard Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos and Silver Discoverer.

    For the first time, were visiting Myanmar, formerly Burma. From Phuket, well explore the pristine Mergui Archipelago in southern Myanmar, where sea gypsies worship spirit gods, before continuing to Yangon to explore magnificent pagodas, crumbling colonial architecture and ancient Bagan.

    Another new expedition takes us across the top of Australia to visit Arnhem Land, where indigenous people practise traditional customs. In North Western Australia, well explore the rugged Kimberley coastline at the end of the wet season, when the waterfalls will be in full flow.

    Continuing to Indonesia, well see the mysterious burial stones of Bori, known as the Stonehenge of Indonesia, during an overnight experience to Tana Torajaland on Sulawesi. Another Indonesian odyssey includes our first-ever visit to Camp Leakey, an orangutan research base tucked within a national park in Borneo.

    In the Arctic, were launching our first expedition to the isolated White Sea and Kanin Peninsula in Russias extreme north. In the Canadian Arctic, well see whales and polar bears around Baffin Island in between their crossing to and from Greenland.

    In Antarctica, as well as 10-day voyages, were offering a 12-day Antarctic Peninsula expedition that will attempt to cross the Antarctic Circle.

    Journeying to Melanesia, well gain insights into peoples way of life in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Well visit local tribes, learn about the significance of the Baining fire-dance and maybe stand on the rim of the active Mt. Yasur volcano.

    In the Bering Sea well continue to explore the Russian Far East for diverse wildlife, looking for Kamchatka Brown Bears, whales and over 250 bird species. Well also meet local Koryak and Chucki peoples and see spectacular scenery.

    Other 2016 highlights include Indian Ocean World Heritage-listed sites such as the awe-inspiring Aldabra, the planets second-largest coral atoll, in the Seychelles. Well roam Africas east coast, taking in Mozambique, Tanzania and Zanzibar Island.

    Silver Explorer will also sail the continents seldom-visited Atlantic coastline. Were setting off on a culinary journey, one of our special themed voyages, from Senegal to Portugal that will include taking tea in the Sahara desert and sampling Moroccan wine.

    Our expert guides aboard Silver Galapagos will continue sharing their passion for these extraordinary islands and their wildlife on our two seven-day itineraries visiting the Northern and Western Isles. Some voyages can be combined to make longer trips, or linked with Silver Explorers Central or South American itineraries.

    As we continue to explore our amazing planet, I invite you to embark on an exciting Silversea expedition with lifes little luxuries on board.
