The Ultimate Glacier Cruise

A trip of a lifetime, not many can say they have cast their eyes on these magnificent glaciers.

5 days from £1650pp plus international flights.

A rare opportunity to cruise through the fjords and channels of the Southern Ice Field to view immense glaciers, exploring on foot and by small boat for close-up views and observe flora and fauna.

  • Enjoy the rare opportunity to travel through stunning fjords
  • See up to 14 glaciers
  • Opportunity to explore the glorious Torres del Paine National Park,
  • Travel through the ice of Calvo Fjord in an ice breaker
  • Walk through the forest to Bernal Glacier, where you can touch the ice
  • Look out for cormorants, sea lions and dolphins
  • Stay in a comfortable, purpose-built ice vessel

Departing from Puerto Natales this expedition cruise offers the rare chance to travel through beautiful fjords into the Southern Ice Field where you view numerous glaciers and sail through ice floes on smaller expedition vessels. The scenery is awe-inspiring. Excursions let you get within touching distance of glaciers, take you into the forest and let you observe animal and bird life. It's an action-packed few days that will live long in your memory.

Your ship, Skorpios III, is an A1 Ice Class vessel, designed and built to operate in these conditions while providing creature comforts for passengers. There are two large lounges where you can unwind as you enjoy a drink and a chat with other guests. Both have large windows so you can admire the views. The dining room is light and spacious, with enough room to accommodate all passengers in one sitting. The en-suite cabins vary in size and layout and all, apart from those on the lowest of the five decks, have windows.

Resident guides give presentations to prepare you for each excursion, which they lead. These are the real highlight of your cruise as you explore the pristine environment. Over the course of the 380-mile voyage you see up to fourteen different glaciers, disembarking at some for fine photo opportunities. At Calvo Fjord you board a special ice breaker to sail among the icebergs and visit five glaciers, and at Angostura White a small boat lets you observe wildlife as you travel among the islands. Added to your pre-cruise tour of Torres del Paine National Park, this holiday is an excellent way to enjoy the natural, untamed beauty of this region.

This is an all-inclusive cruise, making life easy with no need to pay extra for food, drinks, presentations or excursions.
