    Chile's fjord world (sailing through the Beagle Channel, passing the Garibaldi Glacier, sailing through the Strait of Magellan, Punta Arenas, Isla Magdalena, Puerto Natales, passing the Pio XI Glacier)

    Icy Giants and Fabulous Lake Districts
    Pristine nature and the breathtaking diversity of the scenery will provide you with unforgettable moments on this expedition. In the Beagle Channel, deep in the south of Patagonia, your attention will be captivated by the brilliant blue of the Garibaldi Glacier. Sealions and seabirds inhabit this overwhelming panorama, which you can enjoy from the Zodiac. En route from Punta Arenas to the penguin colony in Otway Bay*, you may also catch sight of nandus and condors. Alternatives are the Magellan National Park* or a city tour with visit to an estancia*, offering opportunities in terms of either natural or cultural discoveries. Thousands of Magellan penguins will welcome you with excited squawks when you land with the Zodiac on Isla Magdalena, a little further to the north. It becomes more peaceful when you cruise in Chile's majestic fjords. An unforgettable highlight in rich colours is offered by the Torres del Paine National Park*, starting from Puerto Natales: glaciers and fjords, far-ranging forests, turbulent waterfalls and emerald lakes form a spectacular habitat for birds like the mighty condor of the Andes. The park is named after its characteristic landmark - three majestic rocky towers with steep granite walls that reach a height of 3000 metres and shimmer in shades of blue in the sunlight. You get the best views of the mighty peaks on a hike through the Torres del Paine National Park*. Alternatively, deep insights into the Earth's interior can be had on the excursion to Milodon Cave and horseback ride in the Patagonian pampa*, where you will be amazed by the skeleton of a legendary giant sloth dating from the Ice Age. Another mighty relic of that period of Earth's history then presents itself to your gaze - the Pio XI Glacier is the biggest glacier of the southern hemisphere outside Antarctica.
