Chile travel

Cruises and Sailing

Do you dream of a truly unique journey, enjoying spectacular scenery in comfort fit for a king? Then join a cruise ship to see some of Chile’s finest scenic attractions and revel in the singular delights of South America’s southernmost coastline.

Travel in style on one of the many international cruise ships that sail in Chilean waters and discover some of its fascinating port cities, including Valparaiso, Puerto Montt and Punta Arenas.

You’ll be in thrall to the lush landscapes of Chile as your single-hull ship or catamaran navigates the lakes and lagoons. Cruise on the southern Llanquihue and Todos los Santos Lakes or sail close to the towering Grey Glacier in Patagonia.

Relax and have fun as you sail through the Patagonian channels, enjoying the dramatic views of southern Chile’s fjords and stunning remote landscapes. Or venture deeper on an expedition cruise to the southernmost tip of the continent, or as far as mythical Antarctica. Gasp in the glacial air as you finally come face-to-face with the famous white continent.
