    • Cruising Garibaldi Glacier, Chile
    • Glacier of Agostini, Chile
    Glacier Alley: Sail into a vast wilderness of snow-capped peaks, mirror-like lakes, thick glaciers, and islets blanketed with vegetation. In this pristine landscape, myriad fjords or senos cut between soaring granite walls and waterfalls splash down from high above. The region we explore for the next two days is known as Glacier Alley. This entire region is part of a greater UNESCO Biosphere Reserve focusing on the Magallanes Sub-Antarctic Evergreen Rainforest. This incredibly biodiverse region arose with the retreat of the glaciers which formed these fjords. We begin at Seno Pia, a secluded fjord in the northwestern arm of the Beagle Channel with an impressively large glacier at its terminus. Next is Seno Garibaldi, part of Alberto de Agostini National Park, a dramatic region where the formidable Andes meet the sea. We will visit the Garibaldi Glacier by Zodiac and ship, marveling at this stunning wall of ice. Seno Agostini is the origin of numerous glaciers from the nearby mountains. We'll explore this region from our Zodiacs, getting close to floating brash ice and bergy bits, watching for wildlife, and hoping to witness the thundering process of glacial calving. ...

    • Francisco Coloane Marine Park, Chile
    • Isla Rupert, Chile
    Located in the Strait of Magellan, Francisco Coloane Marine Park is the largest marine protected area along the Chilean coast, and it was also the first, established in 2003. This productive area supports vast and unique biological diversity, which will be the focus of our visit. A large summer population of humpback whales uses these waters as feeding grounds, as do South American sea lions. Black-and-white Peale's dolphins are frequently seen, and we'll search for the endemic and endangered Chilean dolphin. We'll explore the marine park by Zodiac, kayak, and on foot. We'll search for large marine and terrestrial birds, including the Andean condor or the giant Antarctic petrel, and on Rupert Islet we'll visit a large Magellanic penguin colony. ...

    After a final morning in Puerto Natales, we'll have two days to continue our exploration of the Chilean fjords. Our captain and local pilots guide us through Kirke Narrows, accessible only to a small expedition ship such as National Geographic Resolution. While the wildlife of the region will leave you speechless, the combination of unspoiled scenery, national parks, and lush Magellanic forests is what makes the fjords of Chile so captivating. We continue to explore the extensive maze of pristine channels and islands, where we may explore by Zodiac and kayak, or take a walk in the surrounding forest. ...
