Cruise Overview

31-day expedition following South America’s Pacific coast down to Antarctica in 2024/2025.

Cross the Altiplano from Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu, before cruising the desert coast of Peru and Chile on this land and cruise adventure combination.

See diverse South American landscapes and structures, from the stilt houses of Castro, to the spectacular mountains surrounding Puerto Natales.

Spend four days exploring Antarctica in its late spring, when penguin colonies start nesting, and take in the otherworldly beauty of this frozen continent.

South America’s highlights 

From Incas to icebergs, this expedition cruise takes you from Peru’s Cusco and mysterious Machu Picchu, down the South American Pacific coast, through the Patagonian fjords and across the icy seas to Antarctica. You’ll enjoy awe-inspiring vistas, historic towns, and glistening glaciers as you discover the highlights of South America. 

Icescapes and penguins 

 We spend four days exploring the vastness of Antarctica's pristine coastal fringe. Springtime is courting season, so listen out for the distinct mating calls of male penguins. With no fixed programme, we’ll adapt our itinerary to make the best of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
