    The highlights of this cruise

    The rhythm of RIO DE JANEIRO will set the tone for the beauty of South America. Idyllic beaches, villa neighbourhoods and galleries – PUNTA DEL ESTE is also known as the Monaco of South America. How about a spot of Christmas shopping on the luxury Avenida Gorlero? BUENOS AIRES is filled with passion and zest for life, and you’ll find the tango wherever you go – whether in the bars along the wide avenues or in the narrow streets of the artists’ quarter Palermo. A day in the Delta del Tigre* is a more leisurely affair, where waterways weave through the swampy landscape to houses on stilts and stately colonial buildings. You can also enjoy more relaxation over the festive period. A stylish Christmas celebration on board offers everything you need for an unforgettable time. A true animal paradise awaits you in PUERTO MADRYN. Watch Magellanic penguins and seals on the Valdes Peninsula*, or keep a lookout for sea lions in the Punta Loma nature reserve*. With a little luck, the following days at sea will bring whale sightings as the EUROPA continues towards Chile after visiting the FALKLAND ISLANDS. PUNTA ARENAS is the gateway to thrilling expeditions into the unspoilt expanses of Patagonia and the “towers of the blue sky”. There are opportunities to get up close to nature on the deck of the EUROPA too – for instance at the foot of the GARIBALDI GLACIER or when CAPE HORN appears on the horizon in the early sunshine. What better way to start the last day of the year? After welcoming in the New Year on board, you’ll have plenty of time to relax, enjoy the views and dream amidst the breathtaking scenery of the Chilean fjords.

    Surrounded by water, gentle hills and pristine nature lies the tranquil city of CASTRO on the island of Chiloe, where wild penguins live in the vast national park*. Chile’s wilderness will lure you ashore one last time in PUERTO MONTT. Hike through the natural forests of Alerce Andino National Park* in search of chinchillas and pudus, the world’s smallest deer. Or gaze at the distant Osorno Volcano* rising majestically above the deep-blue Lake Llanquihue as you head to the Petrohue waterfalls. The hilly city of VALPARAISO inspires its visitors with colourful facades and idiosyncratic urban architecture in a maze of stairs and cable railways – and invites them to stay. Give in to its charms and spend some time here or head home the next morning.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
