Detailed Port Descriptions

Valparaiso, Chile

Colorful buildings perched above a picturesque bay welcome you into the city of Valparaiso, a charming coastal destination located less than two hours away from Santiago. Wander through the Historic Quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Board a signature funicular elevator and explore the city’s hills. In its winding staircases and alleyways, you’ll find pastel-colored houses, vibrant street art, fascinating museums, and jaw-dropping views of the Pacific Ocean.

Puerto Montt, Chile

A Puerto Montt cruise port of call places you at the southern end of Chile’s lovely Lake District. The scenery surrounding Puerto Montt is just what you might expect from a port of call near the Andes Mountains and Patagonian fjords: towering volcanoes, snow-capped mountaintops, and wild forests. Puerto Montt’s distinct German vibe comes from its German settlers, who founded the city in the mid 1800s. When you’re visiting the area from a South America cruise, you’ll find that German architecture, customs, and cuisine are still prevalent today.  In addition to bustling squares, great shopping, and delicious restaurants that you’ll find in the city center, a cruise to Puerto Montt provides an excellent opportunity to get out into nature. Puerto Montt is a gateway to many of the natural wonders that the Patagonia region of South America provides.

Chilean Fjords

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.

Strait Of Magellan

This 350-mile journey is a bucket-list experience for most cruisers. On a Strait of Magellan cruise, you'll encounter the raw beauty of Tierra del Fuego plains in the distance, the imposing Amalia glacier, stunning Seno Eyre fjord, humpback whales, colonies of Magellanic penguins, and much more. You are certain to leave with amazing memories, and pictures, of the breathtaking scenic highlights as you make your way through this corner of the world.

Punta Arenas, Chile

South America isn't all tropical rainforests. Around Punta Arenas you'll find soaring mountains, beautiful national parks, vast ice fields and towering glaciers. The city itself has been a hub of commerce and trade for generations, thanks to its access to both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Trek through Magallanes National Reserve or visit the penguin colony at Seno Otway.

Ushuaia, Argentina

No city on the planet has a more southerly latitude. As a result, the sun shines for 18 hours during each summer day, providing ample opportunity to view the mix of glaciers, forests and sea, all framed by Mount Martial to the west and Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos to the east.

Cape Horn, Chile (Scenic Cruising)

Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, is the most isolated place in the Americas, and Cape Horn is its southernmost point. These craggy cliffs and windswept shores are stark, rugged beauty personified, creating a dramatic setting for the collision between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

This deep water port was founded in 1865 by Welsh immigrants. Extending out into the Atlantic from Puerto Madryn is the Península Valdés, a wildlife sanctuary where vast numbers of sea elephants, whales and penguins far outnumber the few human visitors who make it out this far.

Montevideo, Uruguay

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.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

If only one word could be used to describe this vibrant and richly cosmopolitan city, it would be "mosaic." Stroll along these broad thoroughfares, like the Plaza de Mayo, where famed first lady Evita Perón led fervent crowds to petition for her husband’s release from prison, or visit Pirámide de Mayo, the oldest of the city’s many national monuments.
