Patagonia's National Parks

Pristine landscapes await us as we travel through Castro, Puerto Edén to Puerto Natales, gateway to Torres del Paine National Park. Expect majestic mountains reflected in still blue waters, and verdant forests as far as the eye can see in the stunning Chilean fjords.

An Antarctic expedition

We’ll try to land on Cape Horn before continuing south to experience the wonders of Antarctica. You'll see icebergs and glaciers as well as penguin rookeries, whales and seals. There's no fixed itinerary as ice, weather and wildlife will guide us, and we'll go where the best – and safest – adventure awaits.
