Mystical Andes & Majestic Fjords - Tour Summary

Journey to the bottom of the world, where natural beauty reaches a dramatic pinnacle—from glacier-studded fjords and ancient, emerald forests to glistening sapphire lakes and majestic, snow-capped mountains. Encounter the awe-inspiring scenery and alluring cities of South America, as Oceania Cruises’ elegant Marina takes you on an unforgettable 20-night voyage to vibrant ports in Chile, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay and the Falkland Islands. Relax on the splendid beaches of Pisco, then visit Matarani, a gateway to Arequipa—a dazzling city renowned for its pearl-white, Spanish-colonial buildings. Take in handsome, wooden Victorian and Georgian buildings in Antofagasta, admire the graceful 19th-century architecture in Coquimbo, and savour the chaos and colour of Valparaiso. Stroll along Puerto Montt’s quaint harbour, or venture into the Chilean Lake District, a stunning region that beckons with lush, virgin forests and sparkling, deep blue lakes. Drink in the misty, mountainous backdrop of Puerto Chacabuco, a jumping-off point for adventures into glorious western Patagonia. Spend two days cruising the Chilean Fjords while taking in exhilarating, ever-changing sights—from snow-bound volcanoes and dense forests to thermal springs and towering glaciers. Next is Punta Arenas, a delightful provincial town overlooking the Strait of Magellan, followed by Ushuaia, the southernmost city on earth. Discover the English charms of Port Stanley, before stopping in Uruguay’s spirited capital, Montevideo, exuding Spanish flavour with lovely time-worn architecture and leafy plazas. Conclude your spectacular voyage in Buenos Aires, a sizzling cultural hub alive with infectious tango rhythms, chic boutiques, enticing cuisine and renowned museums.
