The Chilean Fjords stretch from the Strait of Magellan to Puerto Montt in Chile. Here is where visitors will travel deep water fjords and view snow-capped Alpine peaks, lush vegetation, exotic wildlife and perhaps whales.
Great glaciers can be seen shining white and vivid blue in the summer sun, calving with a thundering roar into the sea. These waters are abundant with wildlife including whales, dolphins, seals and albatross.
