Antarctica and the Chilean Fjords Special Offer

Follow in the footsteps of famous explorers on this once-in-a-lifetime expedition taking in the spectacular Chilean fjords, unique wildlife of Antarctica and contrasting Falkland Islands.

See the sights of Chile's lively capital, Santiago, during an overnight hotel stay, before flying to Punta Arenas to embark brand new expedition ship, Roald Amundsen. Admire breathtaking scenery as you cruise the Chilean fjords, an unspoiled landscape teeming with wildlife, and weather permitting, take the opportunity to go ashore at Cape Horn.

Explore the vast white landscapes of Antarctica where possible landings include picturesque Deception Island, once a major harbour for whaling ships, Cuverville Island, home to a large colony of Chinstrap penguins, and Brown Bluff with its soaring cliffs. During these special landings, you'll have the chance to join guided hikes led by the experienced expedition team, and kayak past majestic icebergs.

Roald Amundsen leaves the White Continent behind and sets sail for the Falkland Islands. The capital, Stanley, is very British with its red phone boxes and English pubs. Explore at leisure or perhaps join the excursion which showcases the vast wilderness and wildlife of the surrounding areas. Rejoin the ship and cruise the Magellan Strait before arriving back in Punta Arenas.
