Silversea Luxury Cruises A USHUAIA

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Ushuaia, Argentina

At 55 degrees latitude south, Ushuaia (pronounced oo-swy-ah) is closer to the South Pole than to Argentina's northern border with Bolivia. It is the capital and tourism base for Tierra del Fuego, the island at the southernmost tip of Argentina.Although its stark physical beauty is striking, Tierra del Fuego's historical allure is based more on its mythical past than on rugged reality. The island was inhabited for 6,000 years by Yámana, Haush, Selk'nam, and Alakaluf Indians. View more

But in 1902 Argentina, eager to populate Patagonia to bolster its territorial claims, moved to initiate an Ushuaian penal colony, establishing the permanent settlement of its most southern territories and, by implication, everything in between.When the prison closed in 1947, Ushuaia had a population of about 3,000, made up mainly of former inmates and prison staff. Today the Indians of Darwin's "missing link" theory are long gone—wiped out by diseases brought by settlers and by indifference to their plight—and the 60,000 residents of Ushuaia are hitching their star to tourism.The city rightly (if perhaps too loudly) promotes itself as the southernmost city in the world (Puerto Williams, a few miles south on the Chilean side of the Beagle Channel, is a small town). You can make your way to the tourism office to get your clichéd, but oh-so-necessary, "Southernmost City in the World" passport stamp. Ushuaia feels like a frontier boomtown, at heart still a rugged, weather-beaten fishing village, but exhibiting the frayed edges of a city that quadrupled in size in the '70s and '80s and just keeps growing. Unpaved portions of Ruta 3, the last stretch of the Pan-American Highway, which connects Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, are finally being paved. The summer months (December through March) draw more than 120,000 visitors, and dozens of cruise ships. The city is trying to extend those visits with events like March's Marathon at the End of the World and by increasing the gamut of winter activities buoyed by the excellent snow conditions.A terrific trail winds through the town up to the Martial Glacier, where a ski lift can help cut down a steep kilometer of your journey. The chaotic and contradictory urban landscape includes a handful of luxury hotels amid the concrete of public housing projects. Scores of "sled houses" (wooden shacks) sit precariously on upright piers, ready for speedy displacement to a different site. But there are also many small, picturesque homes with tiny, carefully tended gardens. Many of the newer homes are built in a Swiss-chalet style, reinforcing the idea that this is a town into which tourism has breathed new life. At the same time, the weather-worn pastel colors that dominate the town's landscape remind you that Ushuaia was once just a tiny fishing village, snuggled at the end of the Earth.As you stand on the banks of the Canal Beagle (Beagle Channel) near Ushuaia, the spirit of the farthest corner of the world takes hold. What stands out is the light: at sundown the landscape is cast in a subdued, sensual tone; everything feels closer, softer, and more human in dimension despite the vastness of the setting. The snowcapped mountains reflect the setting sun back onto a stream rolling into the channel, as nearby peaks echo their image—on a windless day—in the still waters.Above the city rise the last mountains of the Andean Cordillera, and just south and west of Ushuaia they finally vanish into the often-stormy sea. Snow whitens the peaks well into summer. Nature is the principal attraction here, with trekking, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife spotting, and sailing among the most rewarding activities, especially in the Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego (Tierra del Fuego National Park).

3NT PRE-CRUISE: CHILEAN WINE ROUTE

Chile retains an air of uniqueness as it is the most southerly nation in the world, separated from its neighbors by natural barriers. From the nation's capital, Santiago, discover the history of this amazing land with its near perfect conditions for growing robust reds like Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Grapes that mature slowly can develop their varietal character to the fullest, yielding wines bursting with fruit- a characteristic that has earned the Colchagua Valley an honored place on the world's wine map.


Please note: Guests participating in this program should schedule their flights into Santiago Airport.



Day 1 - SANTIAGO

Upon arrival at Santiago Airport, you are met and transferred to your hotel. The balance of the day is at your leisure. If your flight arrives in the early morning, you may wish to reserve an additional night to guarantee immediate check-in upon arrival. Dinner this evening is served at the hotel.


Overnight at the Santiago Hotel - Santiago, Chile.


Day 2 - SANTIAGO / SANTA CRUZ

Following breakfast this morning, meet your guide for the 2.5h drive to the Colchagua Valley. The Andes Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the morning. The valley itself is prized for formidable red wines and is home to over 30 wineries. Inhabited for over 10,000 years, this valley's aridity has preserved hundreds of sites making this area an archaeological gold mine of sand-preserved mummies, fossilized dinosaur footprints, and a nice cool weather to grow succulent grape vines.


Originally from Bordeaux, a region known as the birthplace of the world's great red wines, the Malbec variety is known for its intense cherry-red color, sweet, friendly tannins, and pronounced notes of fruits and spices. Although it is most often associated with Argentina, it is also very successfully grown Chile. Viña Viu Manent, located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, was a pioneer in producing Malbec in Chile when it began 20 years ago. In 1993 this family-owned and operated winery made Chile's first 100% Malbec wine from grapes grown on vines that were nearly a century old. Enjoy a horsedrawn carriage tour and wine tasting before lunch is served this afternoon at the Viu Manent.


This afternoon, spend some time at the Colchagua Museum. This private institution includes a collection of nearly 7,000 items mainly related to the disciplines of Paleontology, Archeology, History of Chile and much more. Few visitors can imagine that behind its modest facade, typical of the Chilean colonial time, one can find an exhibit of the one of the most dramatic rescues of modern times - an almost exact replica of the underground refuge of "San Jose" mine and the "Fenix" capsule that rescued the 33 trapped miners.


At the end of your visit, check-in to your hotel. Take some time to relax and freshen-up before dinner is served at the hotel.


Overnight at the Santa Cruz Plaza Hotel - Santa Cruz, Chile


*Please note, there are no 5-star properties in Santa Cruz. This property is considered a 4-star hotel and offers comfortable, though not lavish, accommodations.


Day 3 - SANTA CRUZ / SANTIAGO

Breakfast is served at your hotel this morning. Then it's time to meet your guide again for a visit to the boutique Neyen de Apalta vineyard, where so-called 'new world' wines are produced with the help of the unique soil and well-aged vines. Thought extinct for more than a century in its native Bordeaux, the Colchagua valley is now the best place in the world to sample wines made from the recently rediscovered Carménère grape.


The Carmenère and Cabernet Sauvignon vines that were planted in 1890 now produce excellent fruit due to their deep roots and natural balance. The tour of the winery will allow you to appreciate their hundred-year-old grapevines dating back to late nineteenth century, as well as both its modern vinification techniques and the historical cellar ending with a wine tasting.


Lunch today is served picnic-style.


Return to Santiago this afternoon and enjoy the balance of the day at your leisure. Dinner tonight is on your own account.


Overnight at the Santiago Hotel- Santiago, Chile

Day 3 - EASTER ISLAND

After a leisurely breakfast meet your guide and head along the southeast coast at Ahu Hanga Te'e in the sector of Vaihu. From Vaihu continue on to the Ahu Akahanga also known as the "platform of the king". According to legends this is the site where the bones of the first king of Easter Island (Hotu Matua) are buried. A short drive follows to Ahu Tongariki, formerly the largest platform on the Island destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960, but since reconstructed. From there, continue to the spectacular Rano Raraku quarry, so symbolic of the island and the original "factory" of the moais. The gigantic statues cover the inner and outer slopes of the volcano; they can be admired in the different stages of production, from carving in the rock to upright position, and lying face down on their intended road to their platforms.


The tour continues along the north coast and passes through La Perousse Bay to stop at Ahu Te Pito Kura. This is the site of the largest moai ever transported and erected onto an ahu. The moai paro stood at 9.8 meters with an estimated weight of 82 tons. Its top knot alone weighs approximately 11 tons. It is also believed to be the last moai to be toppled, sometime in the 1840's.


The next stop is the beach of Anakena where according to native legend Hotu Matua first landed on Rapa Nui. At this site you will see the Ahu Nau Nau partially restored in 1978 by Rapa Nui Archeologist Sergio Rapu. Located in this same area is the Ahu Ature Huki. The moai standing on this ahu was the first moai to ever be re-erected onto an ahu. This was done by a group of islanders working with Thor Heyerdahl and the Norwegian expedition in 1956. A tasty boxed lunch is served in a shaded area at Anakena Beach or at Rano Raraku Volcano. A Boxed lunch will be provided during your full day tour.

3NT POST-CRUISE: CHILEAN WINE ROUTE

Chile retains an air of uniqueness as it is the most southerly nation in the world, separated from its neighbors by natural barriers. From the nation's capital, Santiago, discover the history of this amazing land with its near perfect conditions for growing robust reds like Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Grapes that mature slowly can develop their varietal character to the fullest, yielding wines bursting with fruit- a characteristic that has earned the Colchagua Valley an honored place on the world's wine map.


Please note: Guests participating in this program should schedule their flights from Santiago Airport.


Day 1 - SANTIAGO

Upon arrival at Santiago Airport, you are met and transferred to your hotel. The balance of the day is at your leisure.


Dinner this evening is served at the hotel.


Overnight at the Santiago Hotel - Santiago, Chile.


Day 2 - SANTIAGO / SANTA CRUZ

Following breakfast this morning, meet your guide for the 2.5h drive to the Colchagua Valley. The Andes Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the morning. The valley itself is prized for formidable red wines and is home to over 30 wineries. Inhabited for over 10,000 years, this valley's aridity has preserved hundreds of sites making this area an archaeological gold mine of sand-preserved mummies, fossilized dinosaur footprints, and a nice cool weather to grow succulent grape vines.


Originally from Bordeaux, a region known as the birthplace of the world's great red wines, the Malbec variety is known for its intense cherry-red color, sweet, friendly tannins, and pronounced notes of fruits and spices. Although it is most often associated with Argentina, it is also very successfully grown Chile. Viña Viu Manent, located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, was a pioneer in producing Malbec in Chile when it began 20 years ago. In 1993 this family-owned and operated winery made Chile's first 100% Malbec wine from grapes grown on vines that were nearly a century old. Enjoy a horsedrawn carriage tour and wine tasting before lunch is served at the Viu Manent.


This afternoon, spend some time at the Colchagua Museum. This private institution includes a collection of nearly 7,000 items mainly related to the disciplines of Paleontology, Archeology, History of Chile and much more. Few visitors can imagine that behind its modest facade, typical of the Chilean colonial time, one can find an exhibit of the one of the most dramatic rescues of modern times - an almost exact replica of the underground refuge of "San Jose" mine and the "Fenix" capsule that rescued the 33 trapped miners.


At the end of your visit, check-in to your hotel. Take some time to relax and freshen-up before dinner is served at the hotel.


Overnight at the Santa Cruz Plaza Hotel - Santa Cruz, Chile


*Please note, there are no 5-star properties in Santa Cruz. This property is considered a 4-star hotel and offers comfortable, though not lavish, accommodations.


Day 3 - SANTA CRUZ / SANTIAGO

Breakfast is served at your hotel this morning. Then it's time to meet your guide again for a visit to the boutique Neyen de Apalta winery, where so-called 'new world' wines are produced with the help of the unique soil and well-aged vines. Thought extinct for more than a century in its native Bordeaux, the Colchagua valley is now the best place in the world to sample wines made from the recently rediscovered Carménère grape.


The Carmenère and Cabernet Sauvignon vines that were planted in 1890 now produce excellent fruit due to their deep roots and natural balance. The tour of the winery will allow you to appreciate their hundred-year-old grapevines dating back to late nineteenth century, as well as both its modern vinification techniques and the historical cellar ending with a wine tasting.


Lunch today is served picnic-style.


Return to Santiago this afternoon and enjoy the balance of the day at your leisure. Dinner tonight is on your own account.

Perito Moreno and Torres del Paine

Situated on the southern border of Lake Argentina near the edge of the southern Patagonian Ice Field, the small, picturesque village of El Calafate is the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park, home to the massive Perito Moreno Glacier. One of the world's few remaining advancing glaciers, the Perito Moreno Glacier is currently grinding its way down the Cordillera directly into an arm of the enormous Lake Argentino, whose icy, ever-shifting landscape is ideal for hiking and sightseeing. Spectacular Torres del Paine National Park is a true spectacle with its huge granite towers, which Chilean Nobel-winning poet Pablo Neruda once described as "the last scream of the Andes before they surrender to the ocean", and a myriad of flora and fauna. An area of sheer natural beauty and unique landscapes, Torres del Paine makes for an unforgettable travel experience. Considered the jewel of Chilean Patagonia, Torres del Paine abounds with wildlife, and is home to the beautiful Salto Grande Waterfall and blue-coloured Laguna Amarga Lagoon. A declared International Biosphere Reserve, Grey Lake features spectacular, electric-blue icebergs. The Grey Glacier, which covers an astounding area of approximately 100 square miles (about 259 square kilometres) is part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, one of the largest continental stretches of ice. Puerto Natales, a rambling town spread along the sloping coast of the Señoret Canal between the Ultima Esperanza Sound and Almirante Montt Gulf, boasts a stunning location with exquisite views of a grassy peninsula and glacier-capped peaks in the distance.

About the Perito Moreno Glacier

The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the world's few remaining advancing glaciers, currently grinding its way down the Cordillera directly into an arm of the enormous Lake Argentino. About every three years, the glacier cuts off the flow of water into the lake, resulting in an immense accumulation of pressure as the water behind the glacier rises.


Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonian Steppe and Andean Forest, Walkways and Footbridges

During this full-day excursion to see the Perito Moreno Glacier, travel across the Patagonian Steppe and Patagonian Andean Forest, home to the distinctive notro tree with its intense red flowers in spring. Upon arrival, take a stroll along the walkways in front of the glacier, which forms the source basin of Argentina and Chile glaciers. Walk the footbridges to catch majestic views, and hear the cracks and roars of the incredible living mass that is Perito Moreno.


Magnificent glacier wall, ice field and Lake Argentino

With an approximately 3.1-mile-long (about five-kilometre-long) front wall soaring approximately 180 feet (about 60 meters) above the lake and approximately 99 square-mile (about 257-square-kilometer) of ice field surface, the Perito Moreno Glacier currently grinds its way down the mountains directly into an arm of the enormous Lake Argentino.


Mini-trek over the Perito Moreno Glacier's millenarian ice field

Next, take a guided mini-trek over the Perito Moreno Glacier's millenarian ice field. Beginning at the pier in Bajo de las Sombras port, sail across the Rico Arm, and marvel at the breath-taking views of the Perito Moreno Glacier's front wall.


Lake shore walk towards the edge of the glacier

Afterward, continue on to the opposite shore. Here, mountain guides welcome and lead you to a small shelter, from which small groups of less than 20 guests take guided walking treks along the lake's shore, and towards the edge of the glacier. Next, the ice guides help you to put on a pair of crampons and explain how to use them.


Glacial-trek and ice formations

The following two-hour circuit introduces you to the fascinating landscape of the glaciers; streams, small lagoons, gullies, crevasses, and plenty of ice formations of the most incredible blues. This moderate trek take place over an ice surface that is irregular, but firm and safe.


Please note: The trek requires an extensive amount of walking, at times over uneven, rocky, icy, and natural surfaces and inclines for approximately 4 hours. It is recommended for active guests in good physical condition and it is not suitable for pregnant guests, overweight guests, guests with back and/or neck problems, guests with heart and/or respiratory conditions, guests prone to motion sickness, guests with a fear of heights, guests who suffer from vertigo, guests with limited mobility, and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests must be between 10 and 65 year old in order to be allowed to participate on the glacier trek. Guests whose weight exceeds twice their height in centimetres, less 100, cannot participate in the glacier-trek (e.g. for guests with a height of 1.70 metres: 170 minus 100 = 70 x 2 = 140 kilograms). Guests wearing less than a ladies' size-five shoes (or European size-35) cannot participate on the glacier-trek, as there are no crampons available in smaller sizes.


Alternative Program: boat-ride along the De Los Tempanos Canal of Argentino Lake

Guests unable to participate in the mini-trekking portion of the tour may opt for an approximately one-hour boat-ride along the De Los Tempanos Canal of Argentino Lake to admire the northern face of the Perito Moreno Glacier from the water. Shortly after departing the port, the northern face of the glacier can be observed from a totally different perspective than that of the catwalks. When close to the glacier, the boat sails its whole front, according to the allowed distances that guarantee participants' safety. The aim is to admire the landscape, and enjoy both the silence and roar that announces the glacier's pieces breaking off, and falling into the water. After witnessing this natural phenomenon, continue to the opposite shore.


Transfer to the Posada Los Alamos Hotel, check-in and some free time
