About the ports

Puerto Montt, Chili 

In this idyllic setting, surrounded by national parks, lakes and mountains, it is easy to understand why people come here to enjoy the outdoors "South-American style." Imagine sipping fine Chilean wine and enjoying some sausage.

 

 

Chilean Fjords

 

 These are some of the most magnificent fjords in the world. As your eyes work their way up the jagged walls of mammoth glaciers, you may be rewarded with an Andean condor sighting. On the ocean's surface, the Magellanic penguins always put on a good show.

 

Strait of Magellan

  

This 360-mile strait isolates the Tierra del Fuego archipelago from the rest of the South American continent, and is named after the ambitious Portuguese explorer and mariner Ferdinand Magellan. You will retrace Magellan's route as you make the shortest crossing from Atlantic to Pacific between two landmasses this side of the Panama Canal.

 

Punta Arenas, Chili

Punta Arenas is the southernmost point on the contiguous South American continent. It overlooks the Strait of Magellan and Otway Sound, home to colonies of sea lions and Magellanic penguins. Punta Arenas is also one of the few places on earth where you can snow ski while looking out over an ocean.

 

Ushuaia, Argentina 

Surrounded on three sides by towering peaks, this former penal colony hardly seems like a suitable site to exact justice from the scourge of society. Certainly, even the scientifically inclined Charles Darwin must have had a difficult time leaving this Eden during his travels through the area

 

Cape Horn, Chili

 Here you will find Horn Island, the southernmost point of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, and the Americas for that matter. This is also the place you will find the confluence of the mighty Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Wildlife is abundant, and our onboard naturalist will be on hand to point out the highlights of this diverse ecosystem.

 

 

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

  

The gateway to Patagonia, Puerto Madryn serves as a great base camp for explorers of all levels and abilities. You can venture into one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet. This glacier-dotted landscape sometimes resembles a moonscape more than terra firma. Rich in wildlife and native flora, the Andean national parks and the Peninsula Valdes are also within reach of Puerto Madryn.

 

Punta del Este, Uruguay

Known as the "Saint-Tropez of Latin America" Punta del Este is a favorite summer playground of the rich and famous of southernmost South America, with a pristine 20-mile shoreline offering two distinctly different types of beaches. Big waves beckon surfers at la Brava, while calmer waters create ideal conditions for sailing - or just plain relaxing - at La Mansa.

 

Montevideo, Uruguay

This walking city is a haven of open-air cafés and European-inspired squares. Do not miss the Museo de Gaucho, a fascinating look into the cowboy life, South American style. Even though Montevideo is surrounded by a continuous stretch of white-sand beach, you are never more than a taxi ride away from a museum, art gallery or a theater.

 

Buenos Aires

 Aside from Argentina’s numerous natural wonders a European sophistication and passion for local culture is evident in the cosmopolitan capital of Buenos Aires where you will find cobbled streets, grand avenues, old-time cafes and stylish restaurants. Traveling into the countryside, the gaucho traditions and customs provide you with a picture of ancient settlements and a picture of simpler times.
