Date Port Arrival Departure
 

Feb 8, Wednesday

Valparaíso, Chile »   7 pm
 
Valparaíso, the “Vale of Paradise,” has a population of almost 300,000 and is Chile’s principal seaport and home to Chile’s Congress. It climbs a crescent of 45 hills creating a maze of alleys, winding streets, connecting stairs and funicular railways. The port and business center lies at the foot of the hills, in a narrow belt of flatland. Having experienced the rich culture and history of this popular port city, you will realize how ingenuity has transformed this abrupt stretch of coastline into one of the world’s most picturesque and famous port cities.

Nearby lies flower-bedecked Viña del Mar, where the wealthy and powerful come to play in the sun and at the casino. And just 20 minutes from Valparaíso, this beach resort city, also popularly known as the “Garden City,” boasts white-sand beaches, notable museums and a variety of carefully designed parks and beautiful public spaces.

Farther afield, the churches, colonial grandeur and sophistication of Santiago beckon for exploration and discovery.

Cruising the Coast of Chile »
 

 

Feb 10, Friday Puerto Montt, Chile » 9 am 6 pm
 
Puerto Montt was founded in 1853, at the head of the Pacific inlet knownas Reloncavi Sound. Since then it has become the gateway to the Bavarian-flavored Chilean Lake District, a region graced with some of the world’s most inspiring scenery. Virgin forests, picturesque towns, snow-mantled mountains and translucent lakes adorn this idyllic setting.

A wonderland of scenic splendor awaits – the towering volcano of Mount Osorno, the tranquil Lake Llanquihue, the rushing rapids of Petrohue and the serenity of Lake Todos los Santos.

Keen shoppers won’t want to miss the great buys at the Angelmó-Handicraft Market, adjacent to the main port gate.

 

 

Feb 11, Saturday

Castro (Chiloé Island), Chile » 8 am 5 pm
 

Situated on the island of Chiloé, Castro is Chile’s third oldest city in continued existence. Castro’s history is tangible and resplendent in the Plaza de Armas, where you will discover the magnificent yellow-hued Catholic church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An array of shops and restaurants, along with parks lined by decorative lampposts and shaded by large trees, also suggest a bygone time. What the city is most known for, however, is on the water, or more specifically, over the water. The palafitos, or traditional wooden houses built on stilts, are modest in size and construction yet bold in number and color. Deep reds, bright blues and eye-catching turquoises create a collage ready to be captured by camera and enjoyed with a stroll. Other attractions include the Regional Museum with ethnographical and archaeological exhibits, the Museum of Modern Art showcasing contemporary art, and a small park called Plazuela del Tren, or Plaza of the Train. As the name suggests, the park features a train exhibit, including a locomotive and machinery related to the rail line that operated in the Chiloé Archipelago between 1912 and 1960.

Cruising the Chilean Fjords »
 

 

Feb 12, Sunday Puerto Chacabuco, Chile » 9 am 6 pm
 

There are few places left on earth as remote and untouched as Chacabuco, situated along the coast of Chile. Hidden away where the Andes Mountains meet the Pacific, Chacabuco is miles from civilization, which only adds to its allure. With no town center to speak of, the main attraction of this port is simply the pristine beauty of nature. Here, the northern Patagonian ice sheets plunge into the sea, creating ripples of neon blue brilliance, while in the distance, dramatic cliffs and waterfalls pierce the foggy mist.

Feb 15, Wednesday Punta Arenas, Chile (overnight) » 7 am  
 
Punta Arenas (Sandy Point) is the only city situated on the Strait of Magellan, the 300-mile waterway which cuts a swath between the mainland and the island of Tierra del Fuego. This remote center is Chile’s southernmost city and capital of Magallanes Province. Since it was founded in 1848, Punta Arenas prospered as a busy coaling station until the building of the Panama Canal. Today it boasts a population of 100,000, of which approximately one-quarter are descendants of Croatian immigrants. It is also the bustling center of one of the world’s largest sheep farming areas, with major exports of wool and mutton. Punta Arenas is your gateway to a wealth of sightseeing options. Take a thrilling private air charter over Antarctica, explore museums which bring the events of yesteryear alive, or delve deep into Patagonia’s frontier regions.
