Expedition cruising

Expedition cruising

When it comes to visiting Latin America’s islands, rivers and remote reaches, travelling by water can often represent the best (and sometimes only) way to get around.

Our favourite cruises are adventurous in spirit, allowing for far more than a superficial glimpse of the destination thanks to illuminating commentary from expert guides, enthralling land excursions, and perhaps even on-board lectures.

They range from short 3-4 day cruises on the Amazon to an epic journey of consecutive short cruises from the Caribbean all the way to Antarctica, via Cuba, coastal jungle and desert to Patagonia.  

You certainly need not forgo your creature comforts – our selected range of comfortable riverboats, yachts and ships can, if desired, add an element of luxury to the experience of plying the waters of some of the region’s most fascinating and evocative areas.

With the southern tip of South America being the principal gateway for visits to Antarctica, cruises around the White Continent are another speciality of ours. We were one of the first UK operators to offer them and today we are amongst the foremost experts in travel to Antarctica, with an exceptionally wide range of vessels to choose from.
