Cruise Overview

16-day expedition cruise through Patagonia and the Chilean fjords from Ushuaia to Valparaíso 

Join an unforgettable expedition from Buenos Aires, visiting remote national parks and approaching striking glaciers. 

We’ll attempt to go ashore at legendary Cape Horn, and cruise to the must-see glaciers at Garibaldi Fjord. 

Visit remote communities at Puerto Williams, Puerto Edén and Caleta Tortel, as well as bustling cities and charming villages. 

Wild adventure 

From Buenos Aires, you'll fly to Ushuaia before setting off for Cape Horn, where we'll attempt a landing. We'll then sail north along the west coast of South America, with its breathtaking panoramic scenery and remote communities, like the Kawésqar people of Puerto Edén.  

Natural wonders 

Sail past a maze of beautiful fjords, amidst a myriad of islands and steep mountains. Admire soul lifting views as we cruise past glittering glaciers and into remote fjords, before we head to charming Castro, picturesque Niebla and the vibrant hilltop city of Valparaíso.
