Travellers looking to immerse themselves in a culture-rich and vibrant voyage can join Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ new ship Bolette for a 79-night sailing to Latin America with the Chilean Fjords in January 2022 – with up to £400 per person to spend on board.
Among the highlights will be days ashore in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Brazil, including overnight stays in Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. Guests can also experience life beyond the typical tourist attractions, with tours to an Argentinian cattle ranch, a Chilean vineyard and a rare call into Robinson Crusoe Island.
Martin Lister, Head of Destination Experience and Itinerary Planning at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“This is set to be an unforgettable cruise, with opportunities to uncover the history of ancient civilisations such as the Incas at Machu Picchu in Peru and the Maya at Chichen Itza in Mexico; learn the steps to the Samba and the Argentine Tango in the place of their origin and witness the world-famous Christ the Redeemer statue and Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro.
“Visits to this region allow us to offer some truly exceptional shore excursions, including the chance to join a gaucho on an Argentinian cattle ranch to learn the importance of his trade, spend time with the Uro community at Peru’s Lake Titicaca and take in the collection of tumbling waterfalls on a visit to Iguazu National Park on the Brazilian border.
“But the wonders will also continue aboard, with remarkable scenic sailings by Cape Horn at South America’s most southern point and the mountains and glaciers of the Chilean Fjords, as well as a transit of the magnificent Panama Canal – one of the most fantastic cruising experiences.”
