Antarctica via Chilean Fjords Cruise

Antarctica via Chilean Fjords Cruise

The Antarctica Peninsula via the Chilean Fjords is one of the rarer Antarctica cruises. However, it is also one of the most interesting and stunning!

Before visiting the beautiful White Continent, you’ll get the chance to witness one of the most fascinating and stunning coastal landscapes on earth.

The beauty of the trip is experiencing the opposites of landscapes over a short period. On one hand you get the lush Chilean Fjords with its towering green mountains, narrow inlets and beautiful lakes, and on the other hand you get the surreal ice landscape of Antarctica – all in the one cruise!

You will board your cruise in Punta Arenas where you begin by exploring the Chilean Fjords dotted along the coastline. One of the major fjords you will explore is Garibaldi Fjord along the Argentinean coast.

From there you will head to cape horn – the southernmost point of South America. You then sail through the Beagle Channel and out into the Drake Passage where you head towards Antarctica!

Once in the White Continent you will have the chance to explore the region in depth as you make daily zodiac trips and shore landings. You’ll get up close to the amazing wildlife and visit some of the more famous points in the area including Deception Island and Port Lockroy.
