If you’re making travel plans for the end of this year or early next year and still deciding where to go, here is a suggestion: South America. Between October 2011 and January 2012, Seabourn Sojourn will sail around this continent on a series of cruises, including two 17-day Treasures of the Inca Coast
voyages between Ft. Lauderdale and Valparaiso, Chile, and six 14-day Patagonian Passage
voyages to the picturesque Chilean Fjords, Cape Horn and the Falkland Islands between Valparaiso and Buenos Aires, Argentina. This continent is filled with stunning natural beauty, classic colonial cities, majestic ancient monuments, and exciting adventures that will undoubtedly leave visitors with unforgettable memories and experiences they’ll cherish forever.
One of the highlights is the famed Torres del Paine National Park
, located in Chilean Patagonia. A designated UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, the park centers around an alpine massif of three imposing granite towers, reaching more than 10,000 feet, together with several lesser horns formed of black shale, and a variety of glaciers, lakes, and wild rivers. Here is a snapshot of the park taken earlier this year.
There is so much more to see and experience on this beautiful continent, and we hope you’ll be able to join us on one of our voyages this year! Stay tuned for more posts about South America!
