Patagonia, the Chilean fjords and Antarctica expedition cruise - 12 Nov 2016


Private Journey


This cruise on Silversea’s luxury expedition ship Silver explorer takes you far south to discover the pristine land- and seascapes of the Antarctic Peninsula. The White Continent, with staggering snow-clad mountains, sculptured icebergs, abundant wildlife and the vestiges of human exploration, is a breathtaking destination and a real privilege to explore.

But unlike many Antarctic cruises which depart from South America’s southernmost port, Ushuaia, this unique voyage offers the opportunity en route to visit southern Chile, a slither of land clinging to the western slopes of the Ands with a long jagged coastline: ideal cruising territory.

Cruise though 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.  Here, it is so hard to penetrate the fragmented interior that many places can only be reached from the sea.  Discovering this hidden territory is a true adventure.

Continue south to Antarctica and then return to Ushuaia, the Argentina port which sits astride the Beagle Channel in Tierra de Fuego, the island on the tip of the South American continent.
