Your unforgettable adventure around the southern tip of South America begins the moment you depart Santiago. Consider ports Puerto Montt and Puerto Chacabuco a prelude to the main event.

Mingle among the real "March of the Penguins" in the Falkland Islands. Catch your breath and some multicultural European charm in Montevideo. And brush up on your dance moves in Buenos Aires, birthplace of the tango.
