Polar Regions Antarctica Cruise

Antarctica & Patagonia: Legendary Ice & Epic Fjords

Cruise the Chilean Fjords and Antarctica in one combined itinerary on this Patagonia to Antarctica cruise aboard 126-guest National Geographic Resolution or 148-guest National Geographic Explorer. Uniquely join both regions into one epic odyssey on this Antarctica Chile cruise.

The southernmost realms of the planet are places of unimaginable beauty: Patagonia and Antarctica. Humpback whales breach and penguins gather by the thousands. Icebergs shimmer and sapphire-hued fjords harbor snowcapped peaks and virgin forests. Cruise the Chilean fjords to Antarctica to follow in the wake of legendary explorers like Ernest Shackleton and Ferdinand Magellan, and encounter otherworldly icescapes, calving glaciers, remote reserves, pristine parks and the incredible creatures that thrive at the edge of the world.

On this comprehensive Antarctica Chile cruise, seek out Antarctica’s iconic wildlife—including penguins, seals, and killer whales—and marvel at incandescent icebergs using a fleet of kayaks and Zodiacs. Navigate Chile’s coastal fjords and explore spectacular Glacier Alley, where monumental glaciers calve into the sea. Hike among the snowcapped “horns” of Torres del Paine National Park and enjoy special access to Karukinka Natural Park, the largest protected land area in Tierra del Fuego. And cruise the waters of Francisco Coloane Marine Park, searching for the humpback whales and dolphins that inhabit this vast marine reserve.

Both the Nat Geo Resolution and the Nat Geo Explorer cruise the Chilean fjords to Antarctica with ease. These small expedition ships are technologically advanced, fully stabilized and equipped with a well-rounded set of exploration tools including an ROV and enough kayaks and Zodiacs to send all guests out exploring at the same time. Additionally, select cabins offer private balconies for special moments taking in the awe-inspiring wilderness and the bar tab is included for all passengers.
