The landscape is so varied; you will not know where to look first on one of our South American cruises. As the capital of Peru, Lima is steeped in both history and impressive geology. Climb one of the nearby hills or stroll the streets of this recognisably European colonial city.
Another city with a fascinating heritage is Manta, Ecuador. Exploring the city and the nearby Parque Nacional Machalilla, you will be mesmerised by the natural spectacles – from the nesting seabird to the cloud forests and traces of ancient cultures.
As you head to the south of the continent, you will stop at Buenos Aires in Argentina. In this cosmopolitan city enjoy traversing the broad thoroughfares, dining on traditional cuisine and visiting the city’s oldest monument, the Pirámide de Mayo.
For a truly unforgettable experience, head to Antarctica’s Paradise Bay, where you will find mountains such as Rojas Peak and wildlife including Gentoo penguins and Minke whales – it is a bay that truly lives up to its name.
Each port of call gives you the chance to investigate the area at your own pace, or opt for an organised trip to experience a unique side of this entrancing continent.
