Why Take a Chilean Fjords Cruise?

Our team has traveled extensively in Chile, by both land and sea, and can consult on why to cruise Patagonia and how to make your Chilean fjord cruise a fully rounded experience. Chile’s roughly 5,000 islands, most uninhabited, are only accessible by small expedition ship. Experience breathtaking glaciers, snowcapped peaks and even penguins; round Cape Horn in the footsteps of famous explorers; and visit coastal national parks not often seen by Chile travelers. Let our experts help you find the best Chilean fjords small ship cruise for your interests, timeline and budget.

Booking Your Antarctica Chile Cruise

We’re savvy on efficiently linking cruises in Chile to an Antarctica cruise. In fact, some of our Chile cruise options are themselves an Antarctica Chile cruise. Depart from Punta Arenas, in southern Chile, and find yourself on the White Continent in a short 2-3 hours. Return via flight back to Punta Arenas, or cruise back to Ushuaia, Argentina. View all of our Chile cruises, with a focus on air cruises, to learn more about your Antarctica Chile cruise options. Our experts can compare and contrast each trip for you and make a personalized recommendation.

The Chile Cruise Season

Cruises in Chile operate in the North American fall and winter months, roughly September through April. As the southern hemisphere’s weather warms, icy fjords break apart and wildlife emerges, making ideal conditions for cruises in Chile. Note that the climate data referenced above is for Punta Arenas, Chile, from which any Antarctica Chile cruise will begin, end, or both.
