Discover South America like never before with this 25-night adventure, from Buenos Aires to Santiago, and all that is between.
Start with a flight to Buenos Aires, where you will stay at a 5* hotel for three nights, during which you can enjoy this spectacular city in all of its glory.
After your stay, embark on your 14-night cruise with Holland America Line's Zaandam. Ports of call immerse you in the beauty and scenery of South America, including Uruguay, the Falkland Islands, Chile and Argentina.
Disembark your ship in San Antonio, where you will stay at a 5* hotel overnight, before flying to the ancient island of Rapa Nui the following day.
Rapa Nui is also known as Easter Island and home to the iconic Moai statues dotted around the landscape. You will stay here for three nights in a 5* hotel where, during your stay, you can explore the island, overlooking the dramatic coastline, before visiting ceremonial villages, caves and sites of the Tahai - unforgettable memories to cherish.
After your stay on Rapa Nui, fly back to Santiago for a further two-night stay before flying back to the UK.
Spend some time relaxing after your long-haul flight in the capital of Argentina. Why not head to the Casa Rosada; the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina?
Day of leisure.
Day of leisure.
Your 14-night journey through South America begins here as you stay docked in Buenos Aires overnight.
Last chance to see the sights and culture of Argentina's capital, Buenos Aires, as your ship stays in port until evening before heading to the first port of call, Montevideo.
Your first port of call is Uruguay's capital city, and the southernmost capital city in South America. Montevideo is a significant city in its own right: it's the cultural and political centre of the country, home to well over a million people, more than ten times the size of the next largest Uruguayan city. The metro area has around two million—half of the population of Uruguay—but the friendliness and helpfulness of the residents will make you think you're in a much smaller city.
Stanley is the capital of the Falkland Islands. The Falkland Islands are a popular addition to many Antarctic voyages, but they’re well worth seeing on their own for their spectacular penguin, seal and albatross populations.
Wildlife is free to roam; many species have chosen the Islands as their home. Discover the special feeling when a penguin comes close, stops, takes a good look and then continues on its way. Watch nature in the raw as a whale takes a penguin as prey or marvel at the delicate beauty of endemic flowers.
A sprawling metropolis on the edge of the Strait of Magellan, Punta Arenas defies easy definition. It's a strange combination of the ruddy and the grand, with elaborate wool-boom mansions and port renovations alongside urban sprawl. Set at the bottom of the Americas, it is downright stingy with good weather – the sun shines through sidelong rain.
Nestled between daunting snow-capped Andean mountains of Argentina and the shores of the Beagle Channel lies Ushuaia, a busy port and adventure hub that takes full advantage of marketing its end-of-the-world vibe just a three-hour plane ride from Buenos Aires.
The town has been a missionary base, penal colony and naval base for the Argentine navy, but over the last decade or two it has transformed itself into a major tourist destination complete with casinos, five-star hotels and a good selection of restaurants.
Cape Horn marks the northern boundary of the Drake Passage and marks where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meet. Horn Island, where the famous cape forms its southernmost headland, is just 8km long. The cape itself rises to 424m, with striking black cliffs on its upper ramparts.
Puerto Montt is a port city in southern Chile’s Lake District, known as a gateway to the Andes mountains and the Patagonian fjords. The city’s neoclassical cathedral, built from wood in the 19th century, overlooks Plaza de Armas square. Nearby, Casa del Arte Diego Rivera displays contemporary works by local and national artists. Just outside the city lie Caleta de Angelmó Market and Calbuco, an active volcano.
Disembark Zaandam and private transfer for a one-night stay in a 5* hotel for a short stop in the Chilean capital, Santiago, before flying over to Easter Island the following day.
Private transfer from your hotel in Santiago to the airport and fly to Easter Island. Upon arrival, transfer to your 5* hotel for a three-night stay on this glorious volcanic island in Polynesia.
Head south along the coast, taking in the dramatic coastline and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean to Hanga Tee where you will be able to view a number of toppled Moai (statues) before heading to the iconic Ahu Tongariki with its line-up of 15 imperious Moais. Return along the east coast to Te Pito Te Henua, the navel of the world before reaching the beach at Anakena, perfect for a refreshing swim in the ocean.
A day of culture, history and breathtaking sights. Visit the volcano of Rano Kau and its perfectly round crater lake, before heading to the ceremonial village of Orongo.
Then on to Ahu Vinapu and the cave of Ana Kai Tangata where you'll find interesting wall paintings before spending the afternoon at Ahu Akivi which features seven re-erected Moai, Hanga Poukura, Puna Pau and finally the ceremonial site of Tahai.
Transfer from your hotel on Easter Island to the airport and fly back to Santiago. Upon arrival, private transfer to your 5* hotel for a two-night stay in the Chilean capital.
Santiago sits in a valley surrounded by the snow-capped Andes and the Chilean Coast Range. Plaza de Armas, the grand heart of the city’s old colonial core, is home to two neoclassical landmarks: the 1808 Palacio de la Real Audiencia, housing the National History Museum, and the 18th-century Metropolitan Cathedral. La Chascona is the home-turned-museum of poet Pablo Neruda.
