Panama Canal and tropical rainforest expedition cruise - 21 Oct 2016, 15 Oct 2017

12 days from £4091pp

Private Journey


Silversea’s Silver Explorer pushes back the frontiers on this expedition cruise from Panama to Ecuador, passing through the waters of the Caribbean to the Pacific Ocean. Travelling on this luxurious motor yacht you can relax in an ultra-comfortable suite after a day out exploring.

Jungle hikes with wildlife spotting in a remote national park and a canoe trip to visit a distant indigenous community are programmed. You’ll also call in at a languid little Colombian fishing port secluded on a virtually inaccessible bay: here, a traditional way of life is unchanged.  

Visit the bird-filled Isla de la Plata, sometimes known as Poor Man's Galápagos and finish your cruise at Ecuador’s dynamic, fast-evolving second city, the port of Guayaquil. (There, you are ideally positioned to connect with another cruise in the Galápagos Islands).
