Visit natural wonders on two continents and enjoy a two-night stay in Santiago
18-day cruise expedition from $4,745* per person
Our expedition will begin in charming Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, then we'll sail through the Drake Passage to the Antarctic Peninsula. Our plans include a call at thermal Deception Island and a visit to the penguins at Port Lockroy. Escorted by icebergs - and a team of Antarctic experts - we'll navigate stunning Neumayer Channel and Paradise Harbor to Half Moon Island, where whales often patrol the shores.

We'll round Cape Horn where the Atlantic and Pacific meet. Ahead lies some of the most phenomenal - and surprising - geography in all the world, beginning with the Patagonian coast of Chile. Here, we'll cruise to magnificent Seno Eyre Fjord. Further north, beautiful Puerto Montt is our gate-way to an entirely different landscape: a lake region of alpine villages in thick forests framed by towering volcanic peaks. Here pristine lakes shimmer in shades of emerald green, sapphire blue and luminous gray.

From the narrow, twisting streets of Valparaiso, where we disembark, we'll travel inland to Santiago. Our two-night visit and city tour gives us time to explore this historic city with its venerable churches and backdrop of snow-capped Andes. Climb to the top of Serro Santa hill and discover gardens, fountains and charming walkways. Visit the superb pre-Columbian museum. Shop for a Chilean specialty, lapis lazuli. And toast your grand adventure with Chile's acclaimed wines.
