EXPLORE the stunning beauty of the southern Chilean coast before voyaging to Antarctic ice fields. Then sail north to the Falkland Islands and a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE off the Argentina coast on Holland America's ms Westerdam.
This unique and bucket-list itinerary begins in dynamic Santiago, capital of Chile and one of South America's largest cities and concludes in beautiful Buenos Aries, capital of Argentina. In addition, the ms Westerdam not only visits other important ports in Southern Chile, Uruguay and Argentina, but also traces a meandering path through dramatic inlets, fjords and spectacular glacier covered valleys surrounded by rugged mountains with chances to spot all kinds of land and sea wildlife.
After adventuring through the Strait of Magellan toward Cape Horn, cross the historic Drake Passage to cruise through bays and islands off the northern tip of the long Antarctic Peninsula, which reaches out toward South America. Encircled in a landscape of snow and ice in every direction, your ship will spend four days slowly navigating the iceberg-dotted waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, one of the fastest-warming regions in the world.
Finally cruise north to Stanley, the world's most southern capital in the Falkland archipelago, before heading north into Atlantic waters east of Argentina. Off coastal Argentina the ship will meet the Moon's shadow and a Total Eclipse of the Sun* before visiting Montevideo, Uruguay and fascinating Buenos Ares, Argentina. (See Itinerary.)
*2020 December 14 with about 2m07s of totality off Argentina coast. (See The Eclipse for more details.)
