G Adventures has announced a new cruise itinerary sailing the coast of South America from Ushuaia, Argentina to Cartagena, Colombia, on board G Expedition.

The trip visits 21 ports in six countries – Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Peru – and includes a three-day land-based trip to visit world wonder Machu Picchu. The entire voyage is 38 days in total, with travellers with less time able to join sectors of the trip for as few as 12 days.

Highlights of the trip include a Chilean rodeo, barbecue and wine experience in Punta Arenas, as well a visit to the CopiapĆ³ mine where “Los 33” were trapped and rescued after 69 days in 2010.

There is also an optional fly-over of the ancient Nazca lines in Southern Peru, a three-day, land-based trip to Macchu Picchu, the opportunity to traverse the Panama Canal, and relax on the idyllic San Blas Islands in Panama, of Microsoft Windows 95 wallpaper fame.

Brian Young, managing director, G Adventures, says the new trip appeals to those who want to get a taste of all South America’s west coast has to offer, from wildlife and scenery through to culture, people, history and food.

“This itinerary has something for everyone, whether they are enjoying the full 38-day voyage or one of the shorter segments. The beginning of the trip is very wildlife focussed and by the time you get to Panama and Colombia it’s all sun, sea and culture,”says Young.

The full 38-day trip departs Ushuaia on March 21, 2016, with disembarkation / embarkation ports at Valparaiso (for Santiago) in Chile and Guayaquil in Ecuador.
