Discover the Natural Beauty of Patagonia

Staring in the colorful city Valparaíso, we sail along the Chilean Pacific coastline that is filled with snow-tipped volcanoes, beautiful lakes, raging rivers, and lush vegetation. The vastness and untouched beauty of the rugged and mountainous landscape will surely make a great impression!

Stunning Fjords and Cape Horn

We continue one of the most scenic national parks in the world and into the fjords of Chile. This wild and remote area seems almost untouched by humans, with mountains plunging into icy waters. The steep valleys with snow-capped mountains make a striking contrast to an otherwise green area that is rich in wildlife. Cape Horn is a mystical place where to oceans meet. We might even go ashore here.

Exploring the Antarctic Continent

Then we'll cross Drake Passage to reach Antarctica and the mighty frozen vistas of the south. In Antarctica we will attempt to do landings at several places. Penguins, seals, whales, and large flocks of seabirds give life to this surreal and beautiful landscape. We will bring you ashore to set food on the Antarctic continent and experience some of the most unique wildlife viewing.

You might also have an opportunity to kayak in the icy waters of Antarctica. And while on board our comfortable ship you can hear presentations by experts in Antarctica’s rich history, so that you can get even more out of what you will experience along the way. Then we cross the Drake Passage again before this expedition ends in Ushuaia.
