Best Chile Cruises For Adventure Seekers
If you are looking for Chile cruises that have high levels of adventure, you have come to the right place. After reading this information, you will undoubtedly be much more knowledgeable and the only problem you’ll have is trying to get enough time off from work.
Chile cruises have something for everyone to enjoy, from the different ports of call, to the touristy, tour groups. However, if you find yourself yearning for more, something way off the beaten path, rest easy the county will not disappoint you.
At times, Chile cruises are also very affordable. The key is to do your homework and visit during their off season. Try to stay away from peak season when the majority of people travel for the warm climate.
The first thing you will want to do is stay away from the standard Chilie tourist attractions. Don’t get me wrong, they’re nice and all, but they can be very crowded. Plus, they aren’t really all that adventurous. I mean, nothing is screaming ‘climb me, hike me, put your mark on me now’!
There are, however some cruises that do just that, like the Australis cruises. They take you far away from the normal, everyday and you spend time in actual glacier water that is so cold, if you dip your finger in, you would probably lose feeling in about 3.5 seconds. They also allow you to hike some super-intense trails and scale mountains that would stop the average person’s heart; also in about 3.5 seconds.
While many may think Chile cruises are all about rainbows and sunshine, the adventurous look for molten lava and jagged rocks; you can find that by booking with Patagonia cruises and heading to Patagonia. They call this place the ‘end of the earth’ for a reason. This is area is completely desolate in some areas.
You can also check out cruises that take you to Valparaiso Chile, like the HAL Veendam, where you can see history unfold before your eyes. The Piedra Feliz , also called ‘Lover’s Hill’ seaside cliff is draped in tragedy. It is a Chilean legend that supports the number of suicides on this particular piece of land, where lovers threw themselves into the sea. How’s that for adventure?
Cruises to South America can be what you make them, filled with excitement or mildly entertaining. You can eat in world-famous restaurants and sleep in five-star hotels; or you can hike and climb and sleep under the stars, the choice is yours.
