Chilean Fjords & Patagonia
14 days / 13 nights
PONANT invites you to enjoy an unforgettable experience along the Pacific coast of South America, which offers contrasting landscapes and still-unspoiled lands. In Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city, you will board the Le Boréal for a 14-day cruise in Patagonia to Valparaiso in Chile.
Your cruise begins with 5 days and 4 nights of luxury expedition, first rounding the famous Cape Horn and sailing along the Beagle Channel, then crossing the Strait of Magellan, which separates Tierra del Fuego from South America. Then you will sail in the Chilean fjords, those torturous fjords where majestic glaciers seem to meet the ocean.
From Puerto Natales, you will be able to discover the Torres del Paine National Park. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Le Boréal will then head to Tortel. This faraway village boasts unmatched architecture: stilt houses, wooden walkways, endless stairways…
You will be captivated at Puerto Montt by the incomparable beauty of the landscapes in this capital of the Lake District, and discover in Castro on Chiloe Island a remarkable Unesco architectural heritage.
At the end of your cruise you will land in the legendary port of Valparaiso. This will be your chance to discover this ‘paradise valley’ whose historic centre is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
