Passengers on a recent Silversea Expeditions voyage were treated to one of nature’s most stunning phenomena – the aurora borealis, or northern lights.
The awe-inspiring display of otherworldly green lights dancing across the night’s sky came into view as Silver Cloud sailed off the southwest coast of Greenland. The sighting was representative of Silversea’s commitment to unlocking deep travel experience for guests.
For Silver Cloud’s guests, who gathered on the ship’s top deck to witness the lights, it was a spellbinding finale to a day spent exploring Qeqertarsuaq, a small town on scenic Disko Island.
They had hiked through scenic trails to reach cascading waterfalls and a bay of glistening icebergs. Enriching guests’ immersion into the authentic beauty of Mother Nature, the sight of the northern lights — which are formed by electrons interacting with gases in the magnetosphere – offered a truly unforgettable memory.
Conrad Combrink, Silversea’s senior vice-president of strategic development for expeditions and experiences, said: “It’s a real privilege for us to enable travellers to unlock such thrilling experiences as witnessing the northern lights. Using our expert knowledge and our collective experience, we create the conditions for our guests to enjoy remarkable travel experiences across the world; we’re delighted that on this occasion Silver Cloud was in the right place at the right time for our guests to witness a once-in-a-lifetime display. Moments like these are what travelling deeper is all about.”
