What to Expect on a Cruise of Chile
Cruises of Chile are an unforgettable experience, but they are surely like no other cruise you've ever experienced - even if you've done expedition cruises in the Arctic. 
These cruises are ideal for those seeking an active adventure and hoping to be immersed in some of the most isolated natural environments in the world. From sweeping glaciers to towering fjords, these cruises put you in the heart of a windswept, seemingly mythical landscape of towering mountains, colorful steppes, and islands teeming with wildlife like seabirds, penguins, and seals, to name a few.
Zodiac excursions, trekking (sometimes quite technical), and wildlife exploration are highlights of any Chilean cruise.
