Secret Voyage is the seventh studio album by the group Blackmore's Night. According to a SPV press release, Secret Voyage is another kaleidoscopic musical journey through time and space, incorporating and rearranging traditional melodies from all over Europe, blending the "old" and contemporary.[3] Secret Voyage consists of twelve new tracks, recorded by Candice Night, Ritchie Blackmore and their Band of Minstrels.[4]

Secret Voyage won the New Age Reporter Lifestyle Music Award as the best Celtic album.[5] It was also nominated for NAR awards in two more categories - Best Vocal Album and Best Cover Artwork for a CD.[6]
