From the Atmosphere, a small expedition ship, your client can experience the extreme wilderness of Patagonia by air, land and water. Perhaps go heli-skiing and sweep down slopes of the Andes surrounded by a panorama of the Pacific Ocean, fjords and glaciers far below. Or capture the thrill of fly-fishing in icy waters that challenge every day in shallow and deep rivers, white waters, tight bends, lagoons, and more. Count seven nights of lifetime memories in the southernmost corner of the world from $9,830 per person.
“The Nomads of the Sea cruise is a voyage of discovery aboard a small ship which offers interactive, enriching experiences,” according to Justin Wateridge, managing director of Steppes. “Our slogan is Travel Beyond the Ordinary and this fits in with our corporate culture perfectly. We are proud to be their partner.”
Each day on board the Atmosphere is different. All departures take into account climatic conditions, behavior of the fish and wildlife, tides, as well as your special interests. Routes are studied and defined day by day for optimum results.
After enjoying a day of wild beauty and extreme geographical conditions, the 28-passenger ship is a warm refuge. It offers 14 cabins that are either queen or with two twin beds. Each cabin has a private bath and all are exterior. There is a hot tub, sauna and massage. Meals are prepared by the famous Chilean chef Guillermo Rodriguez, who serves Chilean cuisine with a modern twist. The meals are accompanied by an extensive wine list.
Whether your client is a wildlife enthusiast, an experienced angler or skier or simply wish to appreciate the landscape with its jaw-dropping views, their desires are taken into consideration. Guests fly into Puerto Montt and transfer to the port of Naviera for departure. Tour dates in 2013 include departure on December 26th. In 2014, departures are January 18, February 1st, February 8, and February 22nd. In March, dates are March 1st, 8th, 15 and 22nd.
