Relaxation at sea
Puerto Montt/Chile, 8.30 – 18.00 hrs
Leave the lights of Valparaiso behind and experience your first day at sea before reaching the natural wonders of Puerto Montt. With rich green meadows, shimmering mountain lakes and snow-capped peaks, “Chile’s Switzerland” unfurls at the entrance to the city. Enjoy the rushing of the Petrohue waterfalls*, as turquoise-coloured water plunges to the rocks. Magnificent panoramic views of tree-covered volcanic slopes are presented on a scenic journey to the deep-blue Lago Todos los Santos* and on a kayaking tour* on Lake Llanquihue.
Relaxation at sea
Cruising along Pio XI Glacier, 18.00 – 19.00 hrs
Your next destination is no less spectacular. The ice masses of the mighty Pio XI Glacier migrate deeper into the fjord every day.
Cruising in the Strait of Magellan, approx. 10.00 hrs
Your cruise continues along branched waterways and past little islands along the Strait of Magellan towards Punta Arenas.
Punta Arenas/Chile, 6.00 – 0.00 hrs
Patagonia’s oldest city looks proudly at its Victorian legacy, which you can explore by yourself on a stroll around the city. From here, you reach the stunning Torres del Paine National Park* where, with a little luck, you will see rheas and guanacos. Or discover during a hike* the Magellan National Park with its unique flora and fauna.
Cruising along by the Garibaldi Glacier/Chile, 15.00 – 16.30 hrs
Ushuaia/Argentina, arrival 22.00 hrs
Sharp rocks line the banks of the Beagle Channel, whose magnificent highlight is the Garibaldi Glacier: its ice masses glow a brilliant blue.
Ushuaia, departure 18.00 hrs
In the evening, you are welcomed by Ushuaia, capital of the province Tierra del Fuego and self-appointed southernmost city of the world. You will learn more about its history in the former “prison” Museo Presidio. On a catamaran trip through the Beagle Channel*, take a detour to Sea Lion Island which, with a little luck, makes it possible to have interesting encounters with the native animal kingdom, which include Mageallan cormorants. The narrow-gauge railway, Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino*, runs through the centre of the Tierro del Fuego National Park past jagged rocks, tranquil lakes and fairytale forests to the “end of the world”.
Cruising alongside Cape Horn/Chile, 7.00 – 13.00 hrs
The next day, stand by for one of the greatest seafarer experiences: where the waves of the Pacific and the Atlantic merge, EUROPA 2 negotiates the legendary Cape Horn.
Relaxation at sea
Puerto Madryn/Argentina, 7.00 – 20.00 hrs
Two relaxing days at sea lie ahead before arriving at Puerto Madryn, which was founded in the mid 19th century by Welsh settlers. Valdes Peninsula* is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. The nature reserve fascinates with its bird kingdom, and at Punta Norte there is a good chance of spotting elephant seals. While visiting an Estancia*, find out about the native way of life in the interior of the country. Enjoy true gaucho romanticism with a barbecue looking out over the grazing herds of cattle. On a walk along the coast*, once again feel the special character of this remote part of the world before two concluding days at sea and making a move homewards from Buenos Aires.

In 2003, six young Munich-based musicians banded together under the name Nostalphoniker. Based on the style of the Comedian Harmonists, they have continuously expanded their repertoire with mostly their own compositions and enriched it with effective choreography and witty exchanges. With their charming and diverse ensemble sound, these up-and-coming professional musicians give a high-tempo entertainment show which will be a pleasure for your ears and a source of many laughs.
The rich experience they provide and their light-hearted music make Nostalphoniker a highly popular ensemble. Over the years, their concert tours have brought them to Egypt, the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia (twice) and even to the legendary Maxim’s in Paris. Two TV programmes on the current stage programme Die Comedian Harmonists sangen ..., which remembers the final concert of the Comedian Harmonists in Munich in 1934 through music and letters, made just as great an impact as the performances of Nostalphoniker at the Festival Night of the Bavarian State Opera and at the ZDF gala Prix Courage.
