Chilean Fjords Cruising Guide

A Chilean Fjords cruise will take you to one of the southernmost regions of the world. Admire the jaw-dropping depth of the fjords, the icy blue of massive glaciers, and the jagged peaks of snow-capped mountains from the comfort of one of our cruise ships. Sail through the Chilean Fjords on a cruise to South America and discover the wild terrain and stark beauty of Patagonia.

Top Sights & Attractions on a Chilean Fjords Cruise


Experience the thrill of seeing a towering glacier from up close. Marvel at its glistening blue ice from the comfort of your private veranda or from one of the ship’s decks. If you’re lucky, you might even witness a calving display, which is when a chunk of ice detaches from the face of a glacier and falls thunderously into the ocean.

Local Wildlife

Another highlight of a cruise around the Chilean fjords is spotting endemic wildlife you won’t see anywhere else in the world. Watch colonies of Magellanic penguins, named after the famous Portuguese explorer, congregate in large groups on land. See Andean condors, one of the largest birds on the planet, soar above the sky. Or catch a glimpse of a colony of leopard sea lions as they soak up the sun on the rocky shore.

Culture & History of Chilean Fjords

The Chilean Fjords were carved out by retreating glaciers from the past millennia. The fjords have resulted in a series of waterways that must be navigated in order to get to coastal destinations in Patagonia, such as Punta Arenas and Ushuaia. Today, the Chilean Fjords are known for their beauty and local wildlife, including whales, dolphins, and penguins.
