Cruise Overview

Antarctica Cruise | Eternal Beauty of Chilean Patagonia and Antarctica

Experience the long summer days in Antarctica – ideal for whale watching and seeing young penguins and seals.

Navigate legendary Cape Horn, sail through the Beagle Channel and see the beautiful sights of Chilean Patagonia .

Go ice and fjord-cruising in small expedition boats and join landings with the expert Expedition Team.

An Antarctic expedition 

Set sail from Chile and explore the uniquely beautiful world of Antarctica. During December and January, the summer conditions bring longer, milder days, and in February and March whales and penguin chicks abound. Every day our route will be guided by nature, and each sunrise will offer something different and thrilling. 

Chilean Patagonia and Cape Horn  

We’ll also explore the remote waterways and canals of the Chilean fjords, venturing into deep, ice-choked channels whose cliff faces are draped in cascading waterfalls. The Expedition Team will be your guides along the way, giving you their expert knowledge and bringing you closer to the spectacular scenery and wildlife.
