Itinerary

Day 1 : Valparaiso, Chile

January 2, 2023 (Monday)

Day 2 : At Sea

January 3, 2023 (Tuesday)

Day 3 : Puerto Montt, Chile

January 4, 2023 (Wednesday)
This coastal enclave lives and dies by the sea, as evidenced by the colorful fishnet floats that adorn the main cathedral’s altar, the dozens of salmon farms that thrive in the hidden bays, and the hundreds of fishing boats that venture out each dawn in search of ocean bounty.

Day 4 : Chilean Fjords

January 5, 2023 (Thursday)
These are some of the most magnificent fjords in the world. As your eyes work their way up the jagged walls of mammoth glaciers, you may be rewarded with an Andean condor sighting. On the ocean’s surface, the Magellan penguins always put on a good show.

Day 5 : Strait of Magellan

January 6, 2023 (Friday)
Cruising

Day 6 : Punta Arenas, Chile

January 7, 2023 (Saturday)
We drive around the capital of the Magallanes Region. From Cerro la Cruz, we have a great view of the ocean and surrounding area. Our next stop is the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum. This museum explores the plants and animals and history of the local people in this amazing area. Included is the Pioneer Cemetery and was founded by the Salesian missionaries. This beautiful cemetery is lined by tall cypresses and is where the last of the Ona Indians was buried.

Day 7 : Ushuaia, Argentina

January 8, 2023 (Sunday)
Tierra del Fuego National Park is the most southern protected region of Argentina and the only national park that possesses coastlines. This beautiful and rugged land is part of the Andean Patagonia and belongs to the sub Antarctic forest. The park offers protection to representatives of six species of arboreal animals that have established themselves on the island and now claim these forests as home. It also shelters native fauna of the region and preserves ruins from a town of ancient Yámana aborigines. In the Lapataia Bay you can find the remains of mussel shells and animal bones which is evidence that the mussels constituted the animals’ diet. You may even find some utensils or tools all of which add to the interest of the area.

Day 8 : Cape Horn, Chile

January 9, 2023 (Monday)
Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, is the most isolated place in the Americas, and Cape Horn is its southernmost point. Named after the Dutch town of Hoorn in 1616, its craggy cliffs and windswept shores are stark, with a rugged beauty that creates a dramatic setting for the collision between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. And, depending on the time of year, you’ll either encounter “hold on to your hat” waves, or gentle currents on a Cape Horn cruise. Visit Cabo de Hornos (Cape Horn) National Park and discover this lush UNESCO protected ecosystem. Created in the 1940s this 155,906-acre national park is home to diverse flora and fauna.

Day 9 : At Sea

January 10, 2023 (Tuesday)

Day 10 : Puerto Madryn, Argentina

January 11, 2023 (Wednesday)
In Puerto Madryn, you’ll experience a little bit of everything Argentina has to offer. We begin with a 30-45 minute drive to Punta Loma Natural Reserve as our guide tells us about the area. At Punta Loma, we will enjoy watching the antics of the young sea lions. The beautiful white cliffs make a wonderful backdrop for pictures.

Day 11 : At Sea

January 12, 2023 (Thursday)

Day 12 : Montevideo, Uruguay

January 13, 2023 (Friday)
Montevideo is a thoroughly modern city with a rich artistic tradition, the reach of the rural estancias is all around you. If ever there were a time you were inclined to indulge, delicious steaks are the specialty of the house in virtually every restaurant.

Day 13 : Buenos Aires, Argentina

January 14, 2023 (Saturday)
One quickly realizes why Buenos Aires is often referred to as the “The Paris of South America.” This city is open and spacious with an abundance of parkland and elegant shops. Join us for an optional tour of Iguzu Falls following arrival in Buenos Aries – more details below.

Buenos Aires, Argentina – 2-Night Post-Cruise Tour

 Saturday, January 14, 2023 –  Monday, January 16, 2023 

IGUAZU FALLS”: This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the spectacular Iguazu Falls. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it should definitely be on your bucket list. With almost 2 miles of falls ranging from 197 to 269 feet high, the falls are absolutely breathtaking. Our journey begins as our ship returns to Buenos Aires. We disembark and do a little sightseeing of Buenos Aires before we transfer to the regional airport for our flights to Puerto Iguazu. There we are met and transferred to the hotel.

The rest of the day is on our own to tour the small town. About 10 blocks from the center of town is the Triple Frontier. There we can see the Tancredo Neves bridge which connects the Argentine city of Puerto Iguazú and its Brazilian neighbor, Foz do Iguaçu. At the convergence of the borders, each of the three bordering countries has erected an obelisk painted in the national colors of the country in which it is located. All three countries can be seen from each of the obelisks.

We get an early start on Sunday morning to allow plenty of time for our tour to the falls. Our guided tour of the park includes Devil’s Throat—an indescribable blend of beauty, energy, sounds, and views. We also will have the opportunity to take the Lower Circuit—a series of walkways strategically designed to allow different views of the falls from the bottom and to walk close to the enchanting edge of the jungle. We will certainly enjoy the Upper Circuit—a magnificent panoramic view of the smaller falls and the Iguazu upper delta. Included in our day will be the hour-long Great Adventure tour—an 8 kilometer circuit through the jungle in a 4×4 truck plus a 6 kilometer motor boat ride on the Iguazu river rapids which includes a crossing to the Devil’s Throat and San Martin Falls. We are guaranteed to get wet on this tour so wear your rain gear! Even traveling to/from some of the lookouts will be thoroughly enjoyable as we take the open air Jungle Train from place to place.

Later in the afternoon we are transferred to the airport for our flights back to Buenos Aires where we check into our hotel with countless pictures and fabulous memories.

Please note that the Lower Circuit and the Great Adventure Tour have a total of approximately 300 feet of stairs.

The Great Adventure Tour is prohibited for pregnant women and for people with physical limitations (this includes hearing aides but if you remove them before entering Iguazu Falls, you can do the tour, but may not be able to hear the guide very well). 

 

“MORE of BUENOS AIRES”: Since most flights depart late in the evening, we have time to visit more sites in this beautiful city.

 

After breakfast, we board our bus to continue exploring this amazing city. The Plaza de Mayo is the main square bordered by the Pink House (Casa Rosada). We will want to snap a picture of the balcony on the house that was made famous by Evita and President Juan Domingo Peron because of their speeches given there (pink house). The beautiful Metropolitan Cathedral with the mausoleum of San Martin and the Cabildo and the Colonial Town Hall are close by. Finally the tour takes us by the Pala Barolo where we will see the symbols surrounding the building, a tribute to Dante’s Divine Comedy and once the tallest building in Buenos Aires. We will also have a chance to stop at the Buenos Aires Temple for pictures.

 

Our tour concludes as we are dropped off at the airport in plenty of time for our flights home.
