Amazing Antarctic wildlife

Your exploration of Antarctica has no fixed itinerary. You can expect ice-cruising and landings whenever possible, as well as visits to penguin rookeries. The rich waters and landing sites are home to incredible wildlife, including whales, seals, and penguin species such as Adélie, chinstrap, and gentoo. Birdwatchers should keep their eyes peeled for skuas, petrels, and terns.

The Chilean coast

From beautiful fjords to tiny villages, the Chilean coast is a place of adventure and wonder. We’ll stop at Puerto Natales, the gateway to Torres del Paine National Park, and explore the fabled waters of Patagonia and the colonial city of Castro. Then it’s on to Valparaíso, with its colorful jumble of cobblestone alleyways and pretty plazas.
