Adventure Life has hand-picked the best small cruise ships to explore the icy fjords of Patagonia and the sturdiest icebreakers and harden-hulled small ships that venture to Antarctica. Punta Arenas is the primary port for cruises to Chile, and both cruises to Antarctica and cruises around the southern tip of South America viewing towering fjords with massive glaciers plunging into the sea on the sister ships Stella Australis and Via Australis. Flight-cruises to Antarctica are an excellent way to see Antarctica in under 10 days, flying one way, and cruising the other way, saving a few precious days of travel time. Favorite Flight/cruise combinations include the luxurious Herbidian, and Ocean Nova Air Cruises. Contact one of Adventure Life's Chile cruise experts for help finding the pefect ship.
