This port city can often only be reached by plane, but on board the ship you are surrounded by nature and may even see dolphins, whales and seals. One of the highlights of your trip is likely to be the incredibly impressive Torres del Paine National Park where imposing mountains with peaks reaching around 3,000 m, as well as a wild array of wildlife including guanacos, flamingos, rheas and Andean condors, will offer unforgettable moments. Optional Torres del Paine excursions can be taken (additional costs apply) and will take you through the waterfalls, extensive forests and shimmering aquamarine mountain lakes that the area is famous for.
