You will be able to participate in shore landings to experience the Patagonian landscape up close, still pristine, wild and untouched by humans. The Southern Ice Field in Chile is the third most important source of fresh water on the planet. Cruise the 380 miles of the Kaweskar Route, including channels, fjords, multicolored ice floes and the magnificent glaciers of the Southern Ice Field. Walk to their walls and moraines, watch them calve, and witness what very few visitors have before you.
