Details

Departing from the world's southernmost city, cruise along glacier-carved fjords under the shadow of towering, snow-capped peaks. Look out for penguins, dolphins and soaring condors as you meander through an incredible maze of icebergs and towering cliffs. Along the way, you’ll stop in at historic, coastal towns and learn about the region’s incredible history. Disembark in Valparaíso, where colourful homes blanket the hills of this vibrant city.

Itinerary

Ushuaia
Day 1
Nestled in the foothills of the snow-capped Martial Range, Ushuaia’s colourful streets and mismatched buildings cascade from the imposing mountains before coming to an abrupt halt at the shores of the Beagle Channel. As one of the world’s southernmost cities, Ushuaia carries its ‘end of the world’ reputation well. The moody weather and dramatic surroundings certainly help. Board your boutique ship before departing for your journey through one of the most captivating wilderness regions of the world.
Garibaldi Glacier
Day 2
Considered one of Chile’s most beautiful glaciers, the towering teal walls of Garibaldi Glacier are quite spectacular. Surrounded by pristine sub-Antarctic forests, the vegetation is just as impressive as the ice. The glacier and surrounding Garibaldi Fjord are part of UNESCO-recognised Alberto de Agostini National Park, one of the 24 most pristine ecoregions on the planet. The mighty Andean condor is often seen soaring overhead.
Day at sea
Day 3
Sea days are rarely dull. Take the time to sit back and let the world go by. The ship’s observation decks provide stunning views of the passing ocean. A day at sea gives you the opportunity to mingle with other passengers and share your experiences of this incredible trip or head to our library which is stocked full of reference books. Get an expert’s view in one of our on-board lectures or perhaps perfect your photography skills with invaluable advice from our onboard professional photographers.
Cruising Angostura Kirke
Day 4
Angostura Kirke, a narrow waterway that connects the Gulf of Penas with the Gulf of Corcovado in Chile, demands precise timing and skillful navigation. Strong currents and winds heighten the challenge, yet the passage rewards with breathtaking scenery and diverse wildlife. Playful dolphins, sleek seals and soaring seabirds enhance the experience amid mist-shrouded mountains and cascading waterfalls.
Puerto Natales
Day 4-6
Puerto Natales is a charming port town along Last Hope Sound and an ideal gateway to Torres del Paine National Park. The park's highlight is an imposing trio of granite pillars that dominate the landscape. This vast area includes glaciers, vibrant teal lakes, lush forests and thundering rivers, and is home to diverse wildlife including guanaco, Darwin’s rhea, armadillo and the Patagonian fox, and is one of the world's top places to see puma.
Cruising Angostura White
Day 6
One of the narrowest routes in the area, the ship cruises through the treacherously tight Angostura White, or White Narrows, an 80-m wide passage. This rock passage, navigable only in daylight at slack tide, was once home to the Kawésqar people and now lies within the Kawésqar National Park. Navigating between towering cliffs and tiny islands, it offers close-range views of diverse wildlife including dolphins, seals, cormorants and kelp geese.
Pio XI Glacier
Day 7
One of few glaciers in the world that is not retreating, Pio XI glacier is an incredible sight to behold. Almost 66 km in length, Pio XI, also known as Brüggen Glacier, is the longest glacier in the southern hemisphere, outside of Antarctica. With towering ice cliffs, deep blue crevasses and seracs, it advances by 50 metres per day.
Cruising Angostura Inglesa
Day 7
Angostura Inglesa (or the English Narrows), a narrow passage in the Messier Channel on the southwestern coast of Chile, provides a picturesque route through the fjords and glaciers of Patagonia. Navigating this challenging passage demands precise timing and skill due to strong currents and winds. Yet, the journey compensates with stunning views of mountains, islands, and the chance to encounter dolphins, seals, and various bird species.
Tortel
Day 8
After traversing the English Passage's green hills and snowy peaks, the ship arrives at remote Caleta Tortel village at the Rio Baker's mouth. Long isolated with only river and sea access, Tortel's first road was built in 2003. The timber industry led to the construction of wooden houses and streets - or boardwalks - made of wood. Hummingbirds flit amongst the flora of this scenic frontier outpost.

Castro
Day 10
Castro, Chiloé Island's picturesque capital, is known for its palafitos, brightly painted wooden houses on stilts. Beyond the UNESCO-listed palafitos, Iglesia San Francisco, an old wooden neo-Gothic church dating back to 1567, stands tall in yellow. Nearby Chiloé National Park protects native alerce conifers, the largest tree species in South America. The park offers fantastic hiking trails and breathtaking views of the lush, pristine landscapes.
Puerto Montt
Day 11
Puerto Montt, marking Chile's Lake District's southern end, is known for its bustling port and salmon fishing. The compact city's Histórico Museum displays indigenous artefacts and fossils. Nearby attractions include Chile’s oldest national park, Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park with the vibrant Petrohué Rapids by the Osorno Volcano. Beyond the city on the shores of Lake Llanquihue, the town of Puerto Varas is known for its German heritage.
Niebla
Day 12
Niebla, a small coastal town at the mouth of the Valdivia River, is renowned for its folk market and beach. Opposite lie the ruins of the Spanish colonial Fort System of Valdivia, along with its museum at Corral. Nearby, Valdivia, one of Chile's most picturesque cities, is divided by narrow rivers including the Valdivia and Calle Calle, which wind through its downtown area. The city features stately German historic homes dating from 1840 to 1930.

Valparaiso
Day 14
One of Chile’s oldest cities, Valparaíso is known for its steep hillsides overlooking the ocean as well as its historical funicular. UNESCO-listed, it's a maze of monuments, wonderful architecture, churches, cobblestone alleys, colourful houses and bustling plazas. The former home of Chile's most famous poet, Pablo Neruda, is open to the public in Isla Negra. Leaving Valparaiso, the fertile Casablanca Valley is known for Chilean white wines.
