Itinerary

Day 1 Join Puerto Montt (Friday)

Whilst on board you will have Navimag services which include full board, accommodation in various cabins, open deck areas, bar, glacier viewing, films and other entertainment, lectures describing the local geology, glaciation, Kaweskar people, flora and fauna. The ship will commence its journey in the late afternoon.

Days 2-3 Cruise south to Puerto Natales

Puerto Eden
Puerto Eden – Navimag

Upon boarding the Evangelistas at Puerto Montt, we will be rewarded by a fabulous journey through the fjords and channels of Western Chile. From the comfort of our ship, we will be spectators of a wild landscape where the evergreen forests, glaciers and mountains with eternal snows meet the sea. This voyage, accompanied by seals and dolphins, passes close to national parks with untouched mountain massifs, and remote villages such as Puerto Edén, where the heritage of the aboriginal forefathers can still be recognized. This is the ideal accompaniment to any South American adventure. The friendly staff onboard will present useful information and keep you abreast of developments during the journey. The majority of the cruise is through fjords and channels where the sea conditions are generally calm, however for one night the journey heads out into open water, where the conditions can sometimes be quite rough. We advise you take medications if you suffer from sea sickness.

Day 4 Trip concludes in Puerto Natales

After breakfast our trip concludes in Puerto Natales at 8.30am. Further services such as transfers to the airport, additional accommodation in Puerto Natales, or extensions in the Torres del Paine National Park or Antarctica can be arranged on request.
