Voyage description

The eleventh leg of the DARWIN200 Global Voyage sails us through the impressive Chilean fjords, one of South Americas most beautiful landscapes. Spot glaciers in the cold nature as we sail along the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Punta Arenas is a small town at the foot of the impressive Andes Mountains. Once we have left Punta Arenas behind us, it seems as if we are alone in the world. Alone, in a mighty landscape with high snow-capped peaks, glaciers and everything that makes this cold landscape so unique. From the ship, we’re able to see penguins, seals and maybe even whales.

We have two Chilean pilots on board for the entire voyage. They will tell us where we can sail, but we also hope that they will show us the most beautiful places along the way! Where possible, we will make landings to explore the coast before sailing north across the Pacific to arrive at Concepción, possibly accompanied by seals, whales and penguins.

Before and after your voyage leg
We strongly recommend you book a few days accommodation in the port of your embarkation (prior to your joining Oosterschelde), and a few days in the port you disembark (after your place on the voyage ends). This will allow you to recover before and after your adventure and will give you the opportunity to explore locations at your start and end points.

Level 2

Level 2-voyages are suitable for anyone in good health and a reasonable level of fitness, without mobility issues. On these voyages, you can expect days with strong winds or high waves, but most of the time the conditions will be good. A harbor is not always nearby and (medical) help from shore is therefore not always available.

The shipping company would like the OOSTERSCHELDE to be accessible to the widest possible audience, but you must realize that you are making a voyage aboard a seagoing tall ship. This requires more of your physical ability than a daily walk. Some voyages are more challenging than others. With the different levels, we give an indication of how heavy the voyage can be. If you are unsure whether a voyage is suitable for you, it is important to contact shipping company OOSTERSCHELDE for advice.
