All outdoor cabins have fantastic views, and besides the comfort of your cabin, the all inclusive cruises include entertainment, expert lectures and scrumptious dining paired with fine Chilean wines. The cruises also include daily off-board excursions, and typically consist of walks in virgin forests and visits to Patagonian lakes and glaciers. The guided excursions are educational and include talks on the flora and fauna of the magnificent nature you’ll find yourself surrounded by.
