Antarctica Voyage of Discovery - Southbound
Antarctica, Patagonia, Chilean Fjords – Voyage of Discovery, join us as we cruise south from the beauty of the Chilean coast to magical Antarctica! This 18 day expedition offers Patagonia and Antarctica in one exciting voyage.
Start your journey in the vibrant port city of Valparaiso in Chile before sailing south towards Cape Horn in Chilean Patagonia. En route, you will witness the beauty of the Chilean fjords as we explore Chiles Pacific Coast. We call in at Castro, known for its colourful houses built on stilts over the water, Puerto Eden, home to the last members of the Kaweskar people, and the iconic and dramatic Torres del Paine National Park. Hopefully we will be able to land at Cape Horn, the southern most tip of South America before we cross the Drake Passage to reach the pristine wilderness that is the Antarctic Peninsula.
In Antarctica, there will be the chance to do ice cruising onboard zodiacs, getting up close to icebergs and glaciers, and landings, encountering incredible wildlife such as penguin, whale and seal species.
