This expedition takes you to the most intriguing spots along the South American coast and to Antarctica. Visit one of the most scenic national parks in the world, see the rich wildlife of Patagonia, the Chilean fjords, Cape Horn and then, Antarctica. Enjoy spending time ashore, kayaking, hiking and close encounters with penguins, birds and seals.
Staring in the colourful city Valparaiso, we embark MS Fram and sail along the Chilean Pacific coastline that is filled with snow-tipped volcanoes, beautiful lakes, raging rivers and lush vegetation. The vastness and untouched beauty of the rugged and mountainous landscape will surely make a great impression!
We continue one of the most scenic national parks in the world and into the fjords of Chile. This wild and remote area seems almost untouched by humans, with mountains plunging into icy waters. The steep valleys with snow-capped mountains make a striking contrast to an otherwise green area that is rich so in wildlife. Cape Horn is a mystical place where to oceans meet. We might even go ashore here.
Further, we will be crossing the treacherous Drake Passage to Antarctica to the mighty frozen wastes of the south. In Antarctica we will attempt to do landings at several places. Penguins, seals, whales and large flocks of sea birds give life to this surrealistic and beautiful landscape. We will bring you on shore to experience some of the most unique wildlife viewing while setting foot on the Antarctic continent.
You might also get a chance to kayak in the icy waters of Antarctica. And while on board our comfortable ship you can hear presentations by experts in Antarctica’s rich history, so that you can get even more out of what you will experience along the way. Then we cross the Drake Passage again, before this expedition ends in Ushuaia.
