Patagonia is a region which is geographically remote and very diverse in Flora and Fauna. The Andes running parallel are a constant reminder of the raw force of nature, which we experience in the Chilean Fjords and the Antarctica like landscape. Cruise in the Chilean Fjords for 4 nights and visit the Torres Del Paine National Park, the best in South America. We end the trip with Ushuaia, the southernmost city on the planet.
