Here we offer a section which shows the different travel routes through Antarctica and Patagonia, setting out from Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego to Antarctica or from Punta Arenas towards Cape Horn and the Strait of Magellan, or from Puerto Natales towards the Continental Ice Fields and Chilean Fiords.
In South America there is an attractive variety of itineraries aboard cruises along the Eastern and Western Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, cruises along Amazon and Negro Rivers, setting out from Manaus in Brazil or cruises along Paraguay River.
But we not only offer traveling to Antarctica and Patagonia, we also offer trips towards other exclusive destinations, such as the Atlantic Ocean and Africa.
In the North Pole, we could discover travel routes along the Pacific Coast, Canada, the Arctic & Greenland and Alaska. In Central America, we offer cruises along the Mexican Coast, the Panama Canal and the Caribbean.
Cruises to Antarctica from the Peninsula to the Antarctic Circle
The cruises to Antarctica have different options, from the classical program aboard a cruise in 11 or 10 days to the Antarctic Peninsula, to cruises consisting in longer journeys of 31 days, for example. Besides the classical routes to the Antarctic Peninsula followed by the MV Australia, Russian Icebreakers and the Antarctic Dream, there are more complete ones to the Falkland Islands, South Shetland Islands, South Georgia Islands, and there is even a program which extends its route along Weddell Sea. This itinerary also reaches the Antarctic Circle.
The Air Cruise is another new option. Here we would travel at least 7 days overflying from Punta Arenas to King George Islands in the Archipelago of South Shetland Islands, and from there sailing on a ship towards the Peninsula, where we would fly over Cape Horn and Drake's Sea. The most interesting option is the Atlantic Odyssey because it is an excellent journey at an affordable price, sailing towards Antarctica and then along the waters of the South Atlantic Ocean to Ascension Island, having the option to head for Cape Green.
Cruises along South Patagonia, Sailing through Fiords, Straits and Canals
Patagonian cruises have different travel routes: along the Patagonian Fiords towards the Continental Ice Fields, along the Patagonian canals and, finally, along the cold waters of the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel passing by Cape Horn. These routes are followed by Skorpios, Navimag and Australis ships respectively. Skorpios sails along fiords and canals in the South Patagonia.
Its short programs, consisting in a few days, offer 2 itineraries: Chonos Route sailing the Northern Ice Fields and Kaweskar Route sailing along the Southern Ice Fields. Navimag ferries sails along the Patagonian canals and offers 2 itineraries: the southern and northern routes.
Besides going to San Rafael Lagoon and Glacier, it includes some other attractive destinations, such as Ancud and Corcovado Gulfs. Finally Australis cruises sail along the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel, and also offers two travel routes: one from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia, and another the other way around.
Cruises to Galapagos
Different types of cruises take us along the Galapagos Islands, also known as "Enchanted Islands". These trips can be done in economy class, business class and first class, like aboard M/V Galápagos Coral and M/V Galápagos Legend.
Cruises along the Amazon River, such as Amazon Clipper, set out from Manaus
We will sail on these ships along one of the most interesting routes in Brazil in order to learn more about the stunning natural regions of the Amazon forest. We will have the opportunity to choose the trip aboard the classical Amazon Clipper cruises, which have external hulls that will allow us to go deeper into places other ships cannot reach.
We could also choose to travel on more luxurious and comfortable cruises, such as the Amazon Clipper Premium, Iberostar Grand Amazón or Yacht Tucano, more exclusive due to the smaller size and quality standards.
We will go deeper into the Amazon Forest to watch nocturnal animals and changes in the vegetation when night comes; sail on canoes early in the morning to appreciate the fauna to the full, and do trekking along the different paths to learn about the natives' habitat. As an unforgettable experience in our trip, we could watch the famous Meeting of the Waters, where the dark waters of Negro River meet the clear waters of the Amazon River without mixing.
