Discover the dramatic fjords, glaciers and peaks of southern Chile.
We make our way north through a vast network of deep fjords and channels, occasionally venturing out to the Pacific Ocean as we navigate towards Valparaiso – Chile’s historic deep-sea port.
We explore our surroundings by Zodiac boat, approaching huge glaciers and observing resident and migratory wildlife and birdlife.
On shore, we enjoy hikes of varying durations to outstanding viewpoints, in the company of expert guides. In addition, visits to small coastal communities showcase the unique way of life of the hardy local inhabitants – telling a story of both indigenous and European settlement.

RCGS Resolute offers exceptional facilities and provides an ideal platform for expedition cruising. Outstanding observation areas both inside and from the outer decks allow you to be completely absorbed by the coastal landscapes along the way. Our priority is to craft specially designed itineraries that provide you with maximum time in the pristine locations we visit. The vessel has capacity of just 146 guests and we are able to achieve our daily goals by breaking into small, special interest groups. There are hiking options onshore, observing wildlife in close proximity, visits to historic sites, and we enjoy outstanding wilderness areas. Cruising in the zodiacs photographing the landscapes, or observing marine life is a highlight for many. For the more adventurous, sea kayaking is another memorable experience.
