The narrow passages, channels and fjords of Patagonia await you on this 14-day cruise. Board your ship in Valparaiso, a beautiful city which bears many traces of its colonial past and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the first part of your cruise in South America, call at Quemchi, after a sailing during which it is not unusual to encounter sea lions and porpoises. Quemchi is an authentic village located on the lush island of Chiloé. Next enter the magic of the Chilean fjords and channels and travel up close to stunning glaciers. Another highlight of your adventure in Patagonia is visiting the sublime Torres del Paine National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve not far from Puerto Natales. After rounding the mythical Cape Horn, reach Argentina and disembark in Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city.

Day 1 Valparaiso, Chile | Embark

Located about 100 kilometers south of Santiago, legendary Valparaiso is the second largest city in Chile. It is also a splendid city, full of history: two qualities justifying its nickname “gem of the Pacific” and its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site. You can stroll along the steep streets, on foot or by cable car, and explore the many admirable sites like the delicate Iglesia de la Matriz, Sotomayor Square, Bellavista Hill, or Sebastiana house where the author Pablo Neruda lived. At every turn, get a refreshing view of the sea.

A picturesque, colorful fishing village, Tortel boasts a splendid location in the heart of southern Patagonia, halfway between Puerto Montt and Cape Horn. From the little streets made up of small walkways, view the grand panorama of rounded mountains, dense forest, the clear waters of the Pacific. If you walk out onto one the many wooden pontoons, you can admire the views as you stand suspended a few meters above the water. The village is scattered with sculptures made by local artists, an excellent introduction to this friendly community

Located in the heart of Chilean Patagonia, capital of the Última Esperanza province, the village of Puerto Natales wins you over with its brightly colored houses nestled in the shade of the Andes. A walk along the coastal Pedro-Montt Avenue gives splendid views of the Almirante Montt gulf, a stretch of crystalline water that links Puerto Natales to the Pacific. The Museo Historico documents urban and rural life and the indigenous history of the environment. Puerto Natales is also the closest town to the spectacular Torres del Paine National Park, a 181,000-hectare reserve protected by UNESCO.

Day 11 Glacier Agostini

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 12-13 Navigation Cape Horn and Beagle Channel | Puerto Williams

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches
It's at the meeting point between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans that you enter Chilean Patagonia where you head for the Tierra del Fuego archipelago and its famous Cape Horn. From the top of its impressive 425-meter-high cliff, South America's southernmost tip has, for many centuries, seen merchant ships from the world over passing by. Because of its legendary storms and rough seas, getting around the Cape has gone down in history as a challenge for all seafarers. Prepare yourself for a memorable experience, whatever the weather conditions!

Located on Navarino Island a few kilometers from the Argentinian border, the city of Puerto Williams is, according to Chileans, the southernmost city in the world. It is first and foremost, a charming fishing port whose calm and isolation delights you. You can stroll around a few little streets and admire the dark silhouette of the Patagonian Andes, surmounted by eternally white peaks. The Martin Gusinde museum of anthropology gives an aperçu of the living conditions of the ancient indigenous people, the Yámanas, while the surrounding areas propose hiking paths across wild, unspoiled nature.

Day 14 Ushuaia | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Capital of Argentina's Tierra del Fuego province, Ushuaia lies in a bay opening into the Beagle Channel at the country's southernmost tip. Its colorful houses are framed against towering mountains, snow-capped in winter and summer alike. Downtown, the End of the World Museum showcases Tierra del Fuego's natural and indigenous history. A ride on the heritage railway is an exciting excursion into the Tierra del Fuego National Park, while a cruise in Ushuaia Bay is the perfect way to spot sea lions and Magellanic penguins. Say farewell to your fellow passengers and the crew and fly from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires (included in your cruise fare).
