Silversea Cruises Arctic Cruises

The temperature drops as you sail into the lands of the Arctic Circle, but many wonders await you. The location means that for one day each year, the sun never sets, and for another day each year, the sun never rises. If you are there at the right time, you’ll get spectacular views of the aurora borealis, or northern lights. This natural phenomenon turns the night’s sky into a light show where green and blue neon streaks create unimaginable scenes. As you explore this region you’ll be in good hands with Silversea’s experts on the Arctic Circle’s weather, animals and cultures. Despite the temperatures, several cultures have made cities and towns like Tromso and Longyearbyen their homes, so come and find out what the Arctic can teach you with Silversea Cruises.
