In October 2009, Adventure Life Voyages is offering a once-in-a-lifetime voyage from the Panama Canal to the southern tip of South America and Easter Island. This unprecedented 40-day journey is aboard the 100-guest Clelia II, a ship that is uniquely fit for long voyages with spacious all-suite accommodations and attractive facilities.
The trip will transit the historic Panama Canal and then sail along the coast of Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Travelers will explore colonial cities, including Quito, renowned for its architecture and its impressive setting in the Andes (as well as the cities of Mant, Ecuado and Lima, Peru) and monuments of civilizations that flourished in this part of the continent before the arrival of the Europeans in the 16th century. The ship will cross the Pacific to Easter Island, staying in port for four days, allowing for ample opportunity to leisurely and comprehensively explore this fabled isle and its renowned monumental sculptures.
From Easter Island, Clelia II will set sail for the seldom-visited Juan Fernández Archipelago and continue to the Patagonian coast of Chile. From Puerto Montt to Ushuaia, the ship will navigate one of the most spectacular seaways in the world. Here, the coast is dominated by the breathtaking, ice-capped Andes.
