Itinerary Day to Day

Day 1

Arrive Punta Arenas

Arrive in Punta Arenas, where you will be met by a cruise representative and transferred to our hotel. We ask that you arrive no later than 4:00pm so that you may attend our important briefing this evening.

Please visit the hospitality desk in the lobby between 10:00am – 6:00pm today to collect your luggage cabin tags. Our team will confirm details regarding your embarkation day, answer any questions and provide you with information about where to dine or purchase last minute items.

Overlooking the Straits of Magellan, the city sits astride one of the world’s most historic trade routes. Today, Punta Arenas reflects a great mix of cultures, from English sheep ranchers to Portuguese sailors, and it remains an utterly fascinating testament to Chile’s rich history.

At approximately 7.00 pm this evening, meet your fellow expeditioners at a voyage briefing where we will reconfirm your transfer times, the procedures for your flight to King George Island and IAATO regulations for visitors to Antarctica. Afterwards, there’s free time to enjoy the local cuisine at one of Punta Arenas’s many restaurants. (Dinner not included).
