Adventure to the Chilean Fjords and Antarctica
Hurtigruten

On this expedition you'll see the Chilean fjords, with its steep, snow-capped mountains and green valleys teaming with life, and Cape Horn before heading to the South Shetland Islands and Antarctica. This expedition starts with an overnight stay at a hotel in Santiago de Chile, and then you will meet your expedition ship in Punta Arenas. Our first highlight is Isla Tucker, a small island famous for its colony of Magellanic penguins, birds, dolphins, and sea lions, and passing through the extremely narrow Gabriel Canal, with enormous mountains on each side. Then we head into the Chilean fjords and witness the Garibaldi Glacier. If the weather is favorable we will make a landing on Cape Horn before crossing the Drake Passage on our way to the South Shetland Islands and Antarctica. In Antarctica, you will enjoy close encounters with wildlife and glaciers, old whaling stations and its relics, meeting penguins on shore, and watching whales from the deck. If it has proven too difficult to land on Cape Horn on our southbound or northbound trip, we will stop at Puerto Williams in the Beagle Channel. Then, there will be another landing in the Chilean fjords before our disembarkation in Punta Arenas.
