1 Arrive Santiago
We meet you on arrival in Santiago and transfer you to your hotel. Stay: Santiago, Mandarin Oriental Hotel or similar
2 Santiago, Puerto Montt, Embark Ship
Today, fly to Puerto Montt where we'll be waiting to take you to your ship. Tonight's welcome dinner is the perfect way to kick off the adventure. Stay 11 Nights: MS Island Sky (B/D)
3 Puerto Montt, Vicente Perez Rosales National Park
Puerto Montt, gateway to Chile's lakes district, is the last main town in the region. Today, your sights will be set on the surrounding countryside. Head out of the city to Vicente Perez Rosales National Park to see its three snow-capped volcanoes. At the Petrohué River, watch rapids crashing through lava channels creating a series of thundering waterfalls. Return to the ship via Puerto Varas, perched on the shores of Llanquihue Lake with a backdrop of the Osorno volcano. (B/L/D)
4 Chiloé Island
Having cruised through the night, you'll open your curtains to Chiloé Island's colourfully painted palafitos, or stilt houses, cheerfully crammed together at the water's edge. Your foray ashore today takes you through dense forest, which covers much of the island, to Castro, one of the oldest towns in the Americas. Here, you will see the colourful stilt houses up close, as well as the wooden cathedral of St Francis and the historic old quarter. (B/L/D)
5-11 Chilean Fjords Cruise
The exact route will be managed by your captain and expedition leader, and is largely dictated by weather and ocean conditions. The route will take in many mountains, glaciers, fjords, islands, lakes and waterfalls, with many shore landings made possible thanks to the fleet of Zodiac vessels on board. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • This is what you've been waiting for. For the next seven days, you'll be cruising amid some of the country's most amazing landscapes in the Chilean Fjords, Punta Arenas & Torres Del Paine National Park.
12 Cape Horn
You'll soon be nearing the southernmost tip of South America and indeed the planet. Today, your ship will make its way through the Beagle Channel and around Cape Horn, one of the best-known maritime landmarks in the world. Magellan was the first European visitor here in 1530 and prior to the opening of the Panama Canal it was an important staging post. Weather permitting, you'll use Zodiacs to land on the cape itself and enjoy a walk to the monument. Later in the day, cruise back through the Beagle Channel. Here the mountains, still partly unmapped, drop as sheer, densely wooded cliffs into the channel and six glaciers flow from 2,500-metre Mt Darwin into the sea. Keep watch for penguins, dolphins and South American sea lions in the channel. (B/L/D)
13 Ushuaia, Disembark Ship, Buenos Aires
Farewell your ship at the world's southernmost city, Ushuaia, where you will disembark. We'll be waiting to transfer you to the airport for your included flight to Buenos Aires. Stay: Buenos Aires, Park Hyatt or similar (B/D)
14 Depart Buenos Aires
After breakfast, we will say our goodbyes and transfer you to the airport for your onward travel arrangements. (B)
