Overview

Escape to South America with a flight to Santiago, an exuberant city famed for the beautiful hilltop garden of Cerro Santa Lucía, grand architecture and Maipo Valley, one of Chile’s celebrated wine-producing regions. You’ll enjoy an overnight stay here before embarking MS Zaandam, a ship with a musical theme which offers spacious accommodation, a range of dining options and a huge selection of activities whether you want to pursue new interests or relax and rejuvenate.

You’ll sail first to Puerto Montt, the gateway to the majestic Andes Mountains and the Patagonian fjords. Discover this region’s natural beauty as you cruise through awe-inspiring channels and islands, past snow-capped peaks and blue-tinged glaciers. Keep your camera close to hand, for this area is filled with wildlife, from sea lions to dolphins, and seabirds that soar amidst the splendour. Punta Arenas awaits, a city known for its museums, colonial artefacts before you sail to Argentina’s Ushuaia, the ‘Land of Fire’, where mysterious leafy lenga forests hide red foxes and parakeets.

You’ll then cruise around wind-whipped Cape Horn, past granite cliffs and unusual rock formations, on your way to the Falkland Islands, home to the charming Rockhopper penguin.

Discover stunning architecture in Montevideo, before reaching Buenos Aires where you’ll enjoy an overnight stay in port. Upon disembarking you’ll be transferred to the spectacular Iguazu Falls region for a two night hotel stay. You’ll get up-close to the falls during a walking tour of both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides, revealing the diverse landscape and the cascading water. The adventure continues with a flight to Rio de Janeiro, where you’ll enjoy a further two night hotel stay. Here a tour unveils one of the most famous monuments in the world: the magnificent Christ the Redeemer, the perfect finale to your South America adventure.
