South America Cruises
The Amazon rainforest, Galapagos Islands, Brazil, Florida and many other exotic destinations are all part of the package with a South America cruise. Before heading to the winter wonderland of Antarctica, head on a sizzling extravaganza to your favourite long haul destinations.
Enjoy the famous Rio de Janeiro carnival, stop by Florida’s famous everglades or iconic theme parks, and explore wildlife the David Attenborough way at the Galapagos Islands.
Making quite a name for themselves for their lunar landscapes and British nature documentary series, the Galapagos Islands are certainly one for the bucket-list.
If you want to get up close and personal with some of the most majestic animals at sea, an Antarctica cruise is the way to do it. This isolated continent is extremely hard to reach, making a cruise one of the easiest ways to explore its snowy beauty.
There are no land mammals in this icy country, so the best way to spot penguins, seals or killer whales is by being on the ocean yourself. Known as the ‘Great White Continent’, it’s a stunning untouched part of the world.
An Antarctica cruise is an extremely unique experience, with the opportunity to disembark on an island that’s rarely explored by the rest of the world.
Why choose a South America & Antarctica Cruise?
Combining both continents together makes for the ultimate nature-lovers sailing. Explore wildlife like never before from the cooling climates of Antarctica to the sunny delights of South America – you get the best of both worlds.
Best time to for a South America & Antarctica Cruise
South America and Antarctica cruises often set sail through the months of December and January, as this is classed as summer time in Antarctica. But don’t be fooled, you’ll still need to wrap up extra warm when on this icy exploration.
If you manage to bag yourself a South America cruise, the season runs a little longer. You can find yourself sipping cocktails under the sizzling sun from November to May, as these destinations are a lot closer to the equator.
