Antarctica Cruises

Deciding on a trip to Antarctic is no easy task. Options are numerous and all interesting. Somebody who has never travelled to the white continent should preferably embark on a classic itinerary of 10 to 12 days, visiting the Antarctica Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands. If you were to have more days available for your trip and a higher budget you could choose the cruise which includes disembarking on the so called Sub-Antarctic Islands from the Falkland Islands, to the South Sandwich Islands, the South Orkneys Islands, the South Georgia Islands and, certainly, the renowned Shetland Islands.

Other itineraries take you even further, close to the Antarctic Polar Circle, across the Weddell Sea. If you agree on embarking on a 30-day journey which performs an Antarctic semi-circumnavigation, you will arrive to New Zealand, sailing the Antarctic continent into Oceania. A new, innovative option is the Air-Cruise – you need a at least 7 days - departing from Punta Arenas to the King George Islands in the South Shetland Islands Archipelago and embarking at that point on a ship towards the Peninsula, with the chance to view Cape Horn and the Drake Sea. There are also exclusive itineraries such as the Atlantic Odyssey, sailing towards Antarctica and then in the Southern Atlantic Ocean to the Ascension Island, with an option to continue to Cape Verde.

Patagonia Tours

We organize tour programs to every corner in Patagonia, visiting from the Andean North Patagonian forests and the Andean county at Parallel 42 to Isla Grande in Tierra del Fuego, at the very end of the world. Patagonia is a vast region with a variety of unique views, native forests and captivating crystal clear lakes displaying colors ranging from light blue, to green and deep blue or turquoise, surrounded by virgin wilderness, historical values and legends. The magnificent and splendid Andes Mountains produce a particular microclimate in cities such as San Martin de los Andes, or magnetic views in Bariloche or the never ending appeal for the adventurers in towns such as El Chaltén, with the sublime presence of Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. El Calafate offers an endless number of glaciers, such as Spegazzini, Bolados, the spectacular Upsala and the world renowned Perito Moreno Glacier. Ushuaia is the last city in the South American continent, a region where the rocky Andes drop into continental waters and the transition between wild and quiet Patagonia and the last part of the Andes Mountains can be clearly seen. The Andean region at Parallel 42 is a dream come true. Its towns, like Epuyén, Bolsón and Lago Puelo lead to a natural oasis at Los Alerces National Park, regarded as one of the most beautiful spots in Patagonia. Before arriving at this area, you will marvel at the Seven Lakes Road (Camino de los 7 lagos) which connects San Martín de los Andes to Bariloche, and Villa La Angostura half way. You will visit Esquel and Calafate next, driving through the mystic road in Road 40, with interesting points of attraction such as Cañadón del Río Pinturas, Posadas, Pueyrredón and Belgrano Lakes and Mount San Lorenzo to finally arrive in El Chaltén. On the Atlantic coastline the sea breeze blows to the captivating presence of the Southern right whale in Golfo Nuevo in Puerto Pirámides. The Valdés Peninsula is home to abundant native wildlife - Magellanic penguins, sea lions, seals and even orca whales can be seen at Punta Norte. The Ruta Azul (Blue Route) takes you to the region of the Atlantic Ocean, Puerto Deseado, Bahía Bustamante and Puerto San Julián among other destination
