Patagonia and the Chilean fjords expedition cruise - 6 Nov 2017

16 days from £5581pp

Private Journey


This cruise on Silversea’s luxury expedition ship Silver explorer introduces you to the many and varied attractions of southern Chile, one of South America’s most photogenic regions. Culturally and scenically rich Chile, a slither of land clinging to the western slopes of the Andes with a long jagged coastline, is ideal cruising territory.

Between Valparaiso, Santiago’s busy port, and this area of wilderness lies the Chilean lake district, a region of aquamarine, meadows and snow-capped volcanoes. On show are the remnants of a fascinating human history of colonisation by different peoples. Justifiably popular with visitors, it is well worth the exploration you will make on your several landings.

Beyond are the dark fjords and steep mountains of sharply glaciated Patagonia; you sail through silvery seas dotted with a multitude of islands inhabited only by birds and sea-lions. 

It is so hard to penetrate the fragmented interior of the far south that even now there are few roads and many places can only be reached from the sea.  As a result the natural landscapes are untouched and human population is sparse; discovering this hidden territory is a true adventure.
