The destination for lovers of the outdoors...

“Marvel at the wonder of the sprawling Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, the most famous archaeological site on the continent.”

Embark on the voyage of a lifetime as you circumnavigate South America in search of captivating landscapes, ancient civilisations, and characterful cities…. This is a cruise for the adventurous. After making a memorable Transatlantic crossing you’ll arrive in Brazil, a land of natural wonders, rhythm-filled cities, and indigenous folklore. Spend a week cruising the Amazon River, home to the world’s largest rainforest, an exotic landscape filled with staggering levels of biodiversity.

Next, take in a trio of thriving and vibrant cities: samba-fuelled Rio de Janeiro, eclectic Montevideo, and dynamic Buenos Aires. As you continue to travel south, call at the Falkland Islands, before navigating the notorious southern tip of South America, Cape Horn. Discover the unparalleled wilderness of Patagonia, and Chile’s Lake District, with its vast glaciers, sapphire-blue lakes and ancient forests – both playgrounds for lovers of the outdoors. In Ecuador, call at cities backed by the dramatic Andes mountain range, or perhaps take the adventure of a lifetime and visit the Galapagos Islands for face-to-face wildlife encounters with marine iguanas, giant tortoises and blue-footed boobies.

Funchal, Madeira

Funchal, Madeira

Arrive 0800. Depart 1800.

Known as the ‘green pearl of the Atlantic’, the island of Madeira is a subtropical paradise of laurel forests, jagged peaks, inspirational gardens and dramatic coastlines. The island’s capital, Funchal, offers elegant squares, a striking cathedral, and narrow lanes lined with beautifully tiled buildings to explore. Perhaps admire the panoramic views as you ascend up to the suburb of Monte by cable car, sample the sweet Madeira wine at one of the pavement cafes, step out onto the glass-bottomed skywalk at Cabo Girao over Europe’s highest sea cliff, or enjoy an afternoon of refined indulgence at Belmond Reid's Palace Hotel, the perfect place for afternoon tea.

Cruise to the isolated Cape Verde archipelago located in the central Atlantic, 300 miles from the coast of Africa. As the capital of the island of São Vicente, one of ten islands that make up the volcanic chain, Mindelo has a bustling, lively atmosphere. Explore the pretty harbour town, with its characterful cafes, tiny shops and traditional Portuguese architecture. From the port head to the fish market to watch the local fishermen unload their daily catch, and listen for the sounds of soulful Morna melodies, the national music of the islands, escaping from nearby cafes and bars.
