Explore the frozen continent of Antarctica, Patagonia’s amazing national parks and the stunning Chilean fjords on an unforgettable expedition cruise. 

The frozen continent 

Start in the romance-infused city of Buenos Aires before heading to Ushuaia to board your hybrid-powered expedition ship. We sail the Drake Passage to the white wilderness of Antarctica where you’ll spend five beautiful days.  

Visiting Antarctica in March is an excellent opportunity to see wildlife. Penguin chicks are fledging, and the nutrient-rich waters attract whales. Our Expedition Team will also give fascinating lectures and lead the way in landings and ice cruises. Exactly where we go and when is down to the sea ice and weather conditions on the day, but we’ll always bring you to the best spots available at the time. 

South America adventure 

We’ll go straight back into adventure mode and attempt a landing at Cape Horn. Waves from the Pacific and Atlantic converge here, creating challenging conditions. This fact makes it all the more exciting if we do succeed. You’ll then continue to the small town of Puerto Williams, and we’ll try cruising into Garibaldi Fjord, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and home to a glacier of the same name.  

Patagonia’s National Parks 

Arriving in Puerto Natales, you might join an optional excursion to the world-renowned Torres del Paine National Park. Next is Pio XI, the longest glacier in the southern hemisphere outside Antarctica. The isolated but inviting communities of Puerto Edén and Caleta Tortel follow. Castro is a charming rustic city with access to Chiloé National Park, while Niebla and its old Spanish fortress is your last stop before the vibrant hilltop city of Valparaíso.
