Operator's Itinerary

Day 1:

Check in from 4.00 pm at the pier. You will be invited to afternoon tea and your safety briefing before you set sail by 6.00 pm. You will set off down ‘Ultima Esperanza’ Sound, soon leaving behind Puerto Natales and any signs of civilisation for another three days.

Tonight, you will sail through Kirke Narrows before passing through Morla, Vicuña, Collingwood and Sarmiento channels.


Day 2:

Start the day at the awe-inspiring Amalia Glacier which spans an incredible length of 18 kilometres before joining the Southern Ice Field. You disembark into small motorboats that take you to shore from where you start a short 15-minute walk to the glacier viewpoint, passing washed up icebergs worn down into weird and wonderful shapes on the beach.

After some time soaking up the scenery, you return the same way and, once you're back on board, get a closer look while the ship passes by the glacier face.

The next stop is El Brujo Glacier. Board a motorboat which takes you on a route following the edge of the moraine, leading you to a hidden waterfall. Take in spectacular views of the tall glacier face on the way. You then sail back around to the moraine where you disembark and walk to a viewpoint almost within arm’s reach of the enormous jutting ice towering high above you. Here, you have time to take photos and just observe the calving glacier, with large sections of ice plummeting into the water below with a tremendous crash.

Today’s finale is the Calvo Fjord. Prepare to be astounded and surrounded by stunning glaciers as you plough through icebergs on the ‘Capitán Constantino’ icebreaker. Wherever you look, the views are astonishing, with glaciers in every direction. On the icebreaker, you will get closer views of the Captain Costantino Glacier, the largest in the fjord, as well as the Fernando and Alipio Glaciers. 12-year-old whisky is served on ice from the glacier to top off this unique experience. 


Day 3:

Wake up in the Montañas Fjord by the Sarmiento Mountains where you continue to be mesmerised by your surroundings. You are deep in Patagonian wilderness with only glaciers and mountains on either side and with hardly a trace of anyone having ventured this way before. The landscape is untouched and rugged.

Your first excursion of the day takes you to the face of Alsina Glacier on a motorboat ride. This is another chance to marvel at the different hues of blue revealed by the ice.

Next stop: Bernal Glacier. Here, you disembark and take a short walk to the glacier face which you can almost reach out and touch. This is the closest you will get to any of the glaciers during the cruise and allows you to have a better grasp of the sheer size of the ice and its crevasses. You can really study the textures of the ice surface, being so close. It’s a humbling experience being face-to-face with the glacier.

Back on board, you continue back down the Montañas Fjord until you reach the White Narrows. The captain navigates the ship carefully through this narrow stretch before you disembark onto the boats for your final excursion. This is a fantastic place to spot some of the marine life. You weave in and out of bays with a pod of dolphins in tow (if you’re lucky), past cliffs where condors may be lurking and around islands that are home to marine birds, such as cormorants and upland geese. Just imagine the lost world…

Celebrate the final night of your cruise with the Captain’s farewell dinner and party. Don’t forget your dancing shoes! 


Day 4:

Disembark after breakfast in Puerto Natales between 8.00 and 9.30 am. Transport to Punta Arenas airport can be organised at an additional cost.

Please note that the following can be added as an optional extra: on Monday - lodging on board; Thursday - lodging at Indigo Hotel, similar or ship; Tuesday or Friday - excursion to Torres del Paine and Milodon Cave (includes dinner, buffet breakfast, lunch and tour).
