On this adventure, we have selected some experiences to suggest to you. Our in-destination private customized travel ideas will complement and expand your cruise experience.
1- Pre-Post Trips to Antarctica: CULINARY BUENOS AIRES.
The Experience: Porteños, as locals are called, love eating out. Some prefer a nice dish of pasta still life, others sit in a cozy restaurant in the Palermo neighborhood, and a third devour a barbecue in a “Parrillita.” But, no doubt, eating out is a favorite outing in Buenos Aires. For this reason, the culinary scene is vast and as varied as the largest metropolis in the world. A full snapshot would be overwhelming, so we chose some concepts and proposals that identify the city and the cuisine in which the beef and wine stand. Some other local foods and drinks are mate, alfajores, empanadas, dulce de leche, locro, and “picada” (a table of cold cuts and assorted cheeses accompanied by homemade bread).

3- Pre-Post Trips to Antarctica: EXPLORING THE WINELANDS OF CHILE
Viña Santa Cruz in Chile Wine Country, Colchagua Valley
The Experience: Chilean wine has been produced since the nineteenth century. However, their quality has been increasing since the last decades of the twentieth century, with the opening of trade links between local wine companies and French and American vineyards and winemakers. Since then, several Chilean wines have climbed positions to be among the best in the world. On the other hand, Chile's local cuisine is a combination of the powerful indigenous tradition and its encounter with the Spaniards and French cuisine. Currently, Chile is a country open to the world, with a great international cuisine but with the main aim of rescuing the local products and, above all, the seafood and fish of the Pacific Ocean. Póngale más Pino, póngale color, is said in Chile to request enthusiasm and to improve what is done, an expression of the kitchen reflected in everyday life. We invite you to enjoy Chile's wines and food with all your senses. Destination: Santiago de Chile and Valle de Colchagua, Chile Duration: 5 days
