Sailing Itinerary

Note: Cruise itineraries are subject to change. Please verify ports and times directly with the cruise line.

Day 1Buenos Aires

Overview

This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication, although travelers expecting a more 'South American' experience are sometimes disappointed with its European feel. Argentina is one Latin American country where Europeans and North Americans can feel at ease and travel relatively inconspicuously. An interest in soccer and some nimble foot skills may be all you need to feel like a local.

Day 3Port of CallMontevideoArrival 8:00a.m.Departure 6:00p.m.

Overview

Home to almost 50% of the nation's population, Montevideo is a modern metropolis with a historical old town dating back to colonial times. Surrounding the whole city lies an uninterrupted stretch of white sandy beach. Highlights include Ciudad Vieja (Old Town) with its 18th century buildings, the vibrant Mercado del Puerto, and the bustling commercial activity of Avenida 18 de Julio and its cultural offerings (theatres, museums and art galleries)

Day 5 Cruising
Day 6Port of CallStanley/FalklandsArrival 8:00a.m.Departure 6:00p.m.

Overview

Stanley is a picturesque town of about 1700 people. Brightly coloured wriggly-tin roofs contrast strikingly with the greys and browns of the surrounding hills. The town is named after Lord Stanley, Secretary of State for the Colonies 1841 - 1844. He ordered the main settlement to be removed from Port Louis to the Port Jackson area and Governor Richard Clement Moody completed the move and took up official residence in Stanley on the 15th July 1844. Your first point of call should be the newly completed Jetty Centre - situated just off the Public Jetty, this is where you'll get all the information you'll need on what to do, how to get about and where to stay. For anyone interested in history, a visit to Stanley will be a rich and rewarding experience. A maritime history trail around the harbour leads you to famous wrecks. Old stone cottages mingle with wriggly-tin houses - there are the amazing Jubilee Villas - a piece of British Victorian suburbia in the South Atlantic and the Chelsea Pensioners houses in Pioneer row (brought here in the late 1840's). There are also more recent reminders of the conflict in 1982 - Stanley may be small but it is filled with interest. Your visit would not be complete without a visit to the museum in Holdfast Road (so called because it was here on the 14th June 1982 that Maj. Gen. Sir Jeremy Moore ordered his troops to 'hold fast' until he had negotiated the Argentine surrender. The museum is packed with a huge variety of exhibits ranging from an 1896 Symphonium to whalebones. The stated objective of the museum is to present a taste of the many aspects of the Falklands' rich and varied history including Domestic, Maritime, Social, Military and Natural History - it is not to be missed!

Day 7Magellan Strait

Overview

Magellan, Strait of, c.330 mi (530 km) long and 2 1/2 to 15 mi (4–24 km) wide, separating South America from Tierra del Fuego and other islands south of the continent. Except for a few miles at its eastern end in Argentina, it passes through Chile. The strait, discovered by Ferdinand Magellan in 1520, was important in the days of sailing ships, especially before the building of the Panama Canal, and is still used by ships rounding South America. One of the most scenic waterways in the world, it affords an inland passage protected from almost continuous ocean storms. However, the strait is often foggy. The only city on the strait is Punta Arenas on Tierra del Fuego.

Day 8Beagle Channel

Overview

The Beagle Channel was named after the ship on which Captain Robert Fitzroy and Sir Charles Darwin sailed during their 19th century explorations. The channel runs through the southern part of Tierra del Fuego forming part of the Chilean-Argentine border. Ancient glaciers punctuate the snow-capped mountains on either side of the channel. All along this "Glaciers Avenue" several breathtaking glaciers can be enjoyed as Glacier Watching.

Day 8Glacier Alley

Overview

The most amazing stretch of the Beagle Channel, Glacier Alley is a string of tidewater glaciers that tumble down to the edge of the sea from the massive Darwin Ice Field. Arrayed along the north shore of the channel and surrounded by snowcapped peaks, most of the glaciers were named after European countries -- Holland, Italy, Germany, Spain and France -- by the 19th-century explorers who first mapped the region.

Day 8Port of CallPunta ArenasArrival 6:00a.m.Departure 6:00p.m.

Overview

This is Patagonia's largest and most commercially important city. Located on the western side of the Strait of Magellan with a superb port and the only large airport in the area, it is the major hub for boat transport through the strait and research vessels on their way to or from Antarctica. For the visitor, Punta Arenas is better known as the gateway to Torres del Paine National Park, 400 kilometres to the northwest. This unique town grew up on wool and international shipping before the Panama Canal opened. In the late 19th century, huge fortunes made by sheep farming left the city with distinguished mansions, some of them now museums and other monuments. Summer cruise ships from Punta Arenas travel to Antarctica, where Chile claims a sector of the icebound continent. You can also begin a scenic ferry cruise through the Chilean fjords from Puerto Natales, sailing north to Puerto Montt, in the southern mainland lake region.

Day 8Cockburn Channel

Overview

Cockburn Channel and the Bárbara Channel have the same entrance into the Pacific, but it runs in an easterly direction along the south side of Clarence Island for 40 miles and into Magdalen Sound in Magellan Strait. In working through this passage the south shore ought to be preferred, as it is usually a weather shore, and it seems to be better provided with coves and inlets in which a vessel may find it convenient to anchor. Two rocks are plainly visible above water in the entrance to Cockburn Channel. One rock lies about 10.5 miles 168° from Mount Skyring and appears to be identical with Leon Rock, which is shown on the charts. The other lies northeastward of Tussac Rocks, about 7.5 miles 171° from Mount Skyring.

Day 9Port of CallUshuaiaArrival 12:00p.m.Departure 8:00p.m.

Overview

Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world, on the shores of the Beagle Channel and surrounded by the Martial Mounts. It is the capital of the Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and Southern Atlantic Islands Province, and its superlative location allows you to enjoy sea, mountains and forests at the same time. Besides, it is a great place for shopping: the whole island is a tax free zone, thus you can find lots of imported goods along with regional products.

Day 10Cape Horn

Overview

Cape Horn is the southernmost point of South America. It is located in the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. The cape was first rounded on January 26, 1616 by a Dutch expedition of Willem Schouten and Jacob Le Maire. They named it Kaap Hoorn after the city of Hoorn, Schouten's birthplace. The spanish name of the place is a degeneration of the dutch: Cabo de Hornos. Cape Horn is famous for the weather conditions that made it difficult to round in the days of sailing ships. Even so, the open waters of the Drake Passage south of the Cape meant plenty of sea room for manoeuvring, while the narrow Strait of Magellan through the Tierra del Fuego islands could be a slow and tortuous passage. The area of the Cape is in Chile. A family lives at a small station maintained by the government, consisting of a main house, utility building, chapel, and lighthouse. A short distance off there is a large sculpture featuring the silhouette of an albatross. The terrain is entirely treeless, although quite lush due to the frequent precipitation.

Day 11 Cruising
Day 12Chilean Fjords

Overview

This part of the country is exceptionally beautiful with lakes, snow-capped volcanoes, dense forests and thermal springs. The most exciting way to explore the fjords South of Puerto Montt is by cruise ship or cargo boat.

Day 13Port of CallPuerto MonttArrival 8:00a.m.Departure 5:00p.m.

Overview

This is the capital city of the Lakes Region X, the last city in its longitudinal valley. Puerto Montt was founded in 1853 by Vicente Perez Rosales as part of the policy of settling the area promoted by the government of the time. A year before, the first German immigrants to the country had arrived in the area, and the city, along with Valdivia and Osorno, retains much of their influence. The bay of Puerto Montt extends over the northern part of the Seno de Reloncavi, with a view of the distant Corcovado and Michinmahuida volcanoes. The central business and service section of the city lies around Manuel Irrazabal Square, with a nice view of the sea, and the Cathedral located north of the square. From the square westwards is the John Paul II Museum, which commemorates the visit of His Holiness the Pope in 1987, as well as housing articles from the culture of the indigenous peoples and the German settlers. Further on rise the harbour works and the Handicrafts Fair, where a variety of characteristic articles produced by local artists can be seen and purchased. At the end of the street is the Caleta Angelmo, famous for its fair and traditional restaurants, especially those where every sort of fish and seafood, in particular the local "curanto," can be sampled. Along the same coast road eastwards of the city is Pelluco Beach, with its beautiful residences, very good restaurants, discotheques, and pubs.

Day 14 Cruising
Day 15Port of CallSan Antonio/ChileArrival 8:00a.m.
