Starting 2018, tours are to places of untouched scenic beauty
Luxury cruise operator Silversea plans a new collection of small-group, pre-cruise and post-cruise tours to places around the globe that are scenic yet little seen.
Named the Couture Collection, these are not your ordinary land tours, and have ultra-luxe or specially built accommodation, private transport, exclusive activities and culinary events.
They are custom-designed by Silversea’s team of expedition and destination experts, and each trip will be escorted by Silversea personnel. The nine itineraries debuting in 2018 will also be available for customisation by every passenger.
Tours include Rwanda and Serengeti, searching for gorillas; White Desert and South Pole, flying to Antarctica on a Gulfstream jet; Namibia and “the most luxurious train in the world” from Pretoria to Cape Town; the Australian Outback with visits to Aboriginal rock art sites; Iceland and lunch on a glacier-capped volcano; meditating with monks in Tibet; Mongolia with reindeer herders; and Bolivia’s salt flats, cave of mummies, volcanoes and hot springs.
“Our guests are seasoned luxury travellers looking to discover the least accessible corners of our planet, where nature can still astound with its untouched beauty,” proclaims Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s executive chairman.
“The Couture Collection reveals the most exotic places, cultures and people on carefully curated journeys that feature all the extraordinary touches of comfort and luxury for which Silversea is renowned.”
To determine the inaugural destinations, which range in length from five to 11 days, the company surveyed its North American passengers about their dream destinations and most-desired cultural experiences. Bookings have just opened.
