Christmas & New Year in the Chilean Fjords & Antarctica (Island Sky)

Those who have a passion for the wilder places on our planet usually have Patagonia and Antarctica on their must do list and Chile, with its thousands of miles of coastline and abundant wildlife, is quite simply perfect for cruising. Our expedition starts in Puerto Montt and, with our perfectly suited small ship we are able to enjoy all the wonders of this magical region including the Chilean Fjords and Patagonia, a rugged, yet hauntingly beautiful land of windswept pampas, hanging glaciers and cloud piercing peaks. It remains today as enticing and fascinating as it did to Magellan, Drake and more latterly Darwin.

After spending Christmas Day cruising amongst the southern fjords and channels of Tierra Del Fuego we make our way around Cape Horn and head south for our six day exploration of Antarctica and the South Shetland Islands. We will witness enormous tabular icebergs rise from the sea, hillsides covered with thousands of penguins and seals basking on icebergs and will ring in the New Year under the light of the Summer Antarctic night skies.

The Chilean Fjords and Antarctica Peninsula need to be experienced, not just to be seen, and we believe the only way to do this is on board a small ship in order to maximise the time spent ashore. To enjoy the wonders of these natural world paradises in the company of an expert expedition team and a small and enthusiastic party is the perfect way to achieve the most from a visit to these extraordinary places. Our highly adaptable Zodiac craft will allow us to enter tiny inlets, explore fjords and marvel at some truly wondrous sites. Whilst at sea or in between our landings you can pass the time looking for wildlife on deck, attending the series of lectures or simply relaxing on board.

Christmas & New Year in the Chilean Fjords & Antarctica (Island Sky) itinerary:

show reverse itinerary
Day 1 London to Santiago, Chile.
Fly by scheduled indirect flight.
Day 2 Santiago.
Arrive this morning and transfer to our hotel for an overnight stay. Spend the afternoon and evening at leisure to relax and enjoy the hotel facilities or explore the city independently.
Day 3 Santiago to Puerto Montt.
After breakfast in the hotel transfer to the airport for our scheduled flight to Puerto Montt. On arrival transfer to the MS Island Sky and enjoy welcome drinks and dinner as we moor overnight.
Day 4 Puerto Montt.
Spend the day in picturesque Puerto Montt in the Chilean Lake District. Settled by German colonists in the mid-19th century, much of its early Middle- European styled architecture remains, unusual in such an obviously un-European setting. Leaving the ship we will head to the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park which is the oldest in Chile and contains three commanding volcanoes in Osorno, Calbuco and Puntiagudo. Discover the mighty Petrohue River and the rapids that crash through lava channels creating a series of magnificent waterfalls. We will return to the ship via Puerto Varas situated in a stunning location on Lago Llanquihue with a backdrop of the Osorno volcano.
Days 5 to 10 Chilean Fjords, Punta Arenas & Torres del Paine National Park, Chile.
During the next six days we will enjoy some of the most stunning scenery imaginable. This vast area of mountains, glaciers, islands, lakes and waterfalls is untouched by man except for a few fishing villages which perch at ‘the end of the world’. We will make good use of our time exploring the beautiful protected waters, enjoying the renowned fjords of southern Chile which rival those of southeast Alaska in their raw beauty and prolific wildlife. Crystal clear reflections of vertical walls and hanging glaciers are broken only by the ripples. See how quickly you run out of suitable adjectives to describe all you are witnessing. Our route will be managed by our experienced Captain and Expedition Leader alongside the local pilots. As well as stunning scenic cruising, the area is ideal for Zodiac forays. As we enter the fjords we may stop at the town of Melinka, where colourful houses cover the hillside down to harbour and home to the towns important fishing industry. Well off the usual cruise route we will have time to explore the town, see the mermaid statue “La Sirena Chilota” the guardian spirit of the fisherman and enjoy a pisco sour in the local bar. As we continue our journey we hope to navigate the Kirke Narrows, a remarkable channel leading between lush, forested shores, so narrow it can only be sailed at low tide. Dropping anchor at Puerto Natales, we enjoy a full day in South America’s largest national park, the Torres del Paine. This is one of the most spectacular places on earth, a vast uninhabited wilderness of glacier-draped mountains, windswept pampas, turquoise glacial lakes and verdant valleys. Look out for herds of guanacos (a smaller version of the llama), rheas, Patagonian hares, foxes and rich birdlife and see the stunning rock formations of the Horns of Paine. We also hope to operate Zodiac excursions ashore in some of the remote fjords we pass on our journey.
Day 11 Punta Arenas.
From Punta Arenas we will travel to Magdalena Island to see the Magellan penguins that return each year to mate and live in large groups on the beach. This is now a protected area and the colony numbers are up to 10,000. Celebrate Christmas Eve with the ship’s crew as we continue our journey south.
Day 12 Chilean Fjords - Christmas Day.
Enjoy a day scenic cruising amongst the southern fjords and channels of Tierra Del Fuego. Enjoy a delicious Christmas meal on board specially prepared by our Chef and his team.
Day 13 Cape Horn.
We will make our way around Cape Horn, one of the best known maritime landmarks in the world. Magellan was the first European visitor here in 1520 and prior to the opening of the Panama Canal it was an important staging post. Weather permitting, we hope to use our Zodiacs to land and enjoy a walk to the monument. This afternoon we return to the Beagle Channel. Here the mountains, still partly unmapped, drop as sheer, densely wooded cliffs into the channel and six glaciers flow from the 8000- foot Mount Darwin into the sea. Penguins, dolphins and the South American sea lions abound here in the channel. Over lunch we start our journey south towards the Antarctic Peninsula.
Day 14 At Sea.
Spend the day at sea, maybe join a lecture or find a spot on deck to watch for wildlife.
Days 15 to 20 Antarctic Peninsula & South Shetland Islands.
We have six days of exploration around the Peninsula and South Shetland Islands which will include many of the best places for wildlife and magnificent scenery. Whilst we arrive with a planned itinerary the final schedule will be determined by our Captain and the Expedition Leader based on sea, weather and ice conditions. Using our Zodiacs we hope to make daily landings or enjoy Zodiac cruises for unique close encounters with animals such as adelie and gentoo penguins, fur seals and petrels. Watch avidly on deck as we approach land or sail though breathtaking channels surrounded by lofty peaks looking down on ice-strewn waters where resting crab-eater or leopard can be spotted. En-route south we plan to see Elephant Island with its rocky and inhospitable shore where Shackleton’s crew famously survived. We hope to sail past the collapsed volcanic cone of Deception Island for a chance to visit Whalers Bay, Petermann Island, home to numbers of Adelie penguins, picturesque Neko Harbour, the Lemaire Channel where towering icebergs rise from the sea and Half Moon Island with its rookery of chinstrap penguins. We will also endeavour to sail through the breathtaking Antarctic Sound, also known as ‘iceberg alley’, where massive icebergs drift north from the continent. Ring in the New Year under the light of the summer Antarctic night skies.
Days 21 & 22 At Sea.
A final two days to relax on board and reminisce with your fellow travellers about all you have seen and experienced during our expedition. Enjoy a lecture, look for wildlife or simply relax as we make our way across the Drake Passage toward Ushuaia. Named after the 16th century English seaman, Sir Francis Drake, the Drake Passage separates the southernmost tip of South America from Antarctica. This is a particularly good area to spot royal albatross and blue petrel and we will also be on the lookout for pods of sperm whales.
Day 23 Ushuaia to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Disembark after breakfast and transfer to the airport for our scheduled, internal flight to Buenos Aires. On arrival transfer to our hotel for an overnight stay. This afternoon is free to relax before we meet this evening for a tango show and dinner at a local restaurant.
Day 24 Buenos Aires to London
After breakfast in the hotel transfer to the airport for our scheduled indirect flight to London.
Day 25 London.
Arrive this morning.

Map for Christmas & New Year in the Chilean Fjords & Antarctica (Island Sky)
Island Sky, the ship servicing Christmas & New Year in the Chilean Fjords & Antarctica (Island Sky)

Island Sky

With a maximum passenger capacity of only 116, a vessel of her size is capable of carrying many more but instead the MS Island Sky has the benefit of unusually large suites, luxuriously appointed public areas and spacious outside decks.

Vessel Type:  Luxury Small Ship

Length:  90 metres

Passenger Capacity:  116 

Built:  1992 / refurbished 2018

There is a high ratio of crew to passengers- the friendly crew of 75 crew and Scandinavian captains are experienced mariners, having been in service aboard large 2000 plus passenger vessels and who now prefer a less frantic life aboard a small ship.   If, like them and us, you prefer a more peaceful life at sea, you will find the MS Island Sky the perfect ship. When choosing the vessel for your next voyage of discovery, you can select a ship with endless entertainment and impersonal service or come with us where peace, high quality service and attention to detail are the order of the day. We promise there will be no organised entertainment, fancy dress, deck games or any of the usual big ship experiences. The atmosphere on board is more akin to a private yacht or country hotel. A little music in the lounge or bar after dinner, guest speakers, informative port briefings from our cruise director and of course good food which may be enjoyed leisurely in the attractive dining room. After a day ashore you will return to the comfort and peace of a well run and exceedingly comfortable ship.

Your Suite
Onboard there are 57 exceptionally spacious and well designed suites. All feature a sitting room area and some have private balconies. The feeling of luxury is enhanced by the wood panelling and brass, which predominates throughout the vessel conveying the atmosphere of a private yacht. The passenger accommodation is arranged over five decks and all suites have outside views. Each affords considerable comfort with en-suite bathroom featuring marble-topped vanity unit with sink and walk-in shower, large wardrobes, dressing table with large mirror and stool and excellent storage. There is a mini-fridge, flat screen television with inbuilt DVD player which can also play CDs and a telephone in each suite. Bottled water, towelling dressing gowns and slippers are also provided for your comfort. Other facilities include a programmable electronic safe, hairdryer, assorted toiletries and individually controlled air-conditioning and heating. The suites on each deck have their own colour theme. Soft hues and blended tones enhance the traditional maritime style making the passenger accommodation an inviting and relaxing place to be.

Your Space
The spacious and finely decorated public rooms include a large lounge where daily briefings and talks will be provided throughout the voyage and an elegant bar where a pianist plays periodically throughout the day. The bar also features a 24-hour tea and coffee station. The onboard library is the perfect place to relax with a book and is stocked with reference books pertaining to the places the vessel is visiting along with a selection of games and two computers with internet access. Daily newspapers and magazines are also placed in the library depending on local availability. There is also WI-FI access throughout the vessel. Outside there is a rear sun deck where meals are served in warm weather under shade, a bar and comfortable deck furniture for sun bathing or relaxing with a book. On the top deck there is a Jacuzzi and further observation and sun deck. There is also a small hairdressers on board with appointments made on request.

Your Dining
Another benefit of a small ship is the quality of the cuisine. With only one sitting and a maximum of just over 100 passengers, the galley is able to provide delicious meals. Where possible and when it meets his high standards, the chef will obtain local produce in markets or buy the catch of the day from a passing fishing boat. Such purchases enhance the well stocked larders and bring a local touch to the varied menus.
