What to Expect

Activity Level

Takes into consideration the physical requirements for each of the trips, walking, hiking, climbing in and out of safari vehicles etc.
           Moderate

Travelers should be able to climb 60 stairs consecutively, plus walk at least 3 miles over some steep slopes and loose or uneven surfaces without difficulty. Walks typically last for 3 or more hours at a time. Altitude can range from 5,000 to 7,000 feet.

Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderate

Pacing is sometimes robust, and may include several long days with early hotel departures, active sightseeing and evening activities. Opportunities for daytime rest and rejuvenation may be limited on most days. May include significant motor coach time, two or more on-tour flights, and/or occasional travel via non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, Zodiac ship tenders, rickshaws/pedi-cabs, etc.

PACING

  • This journey is moderately paced
  • You’ll spend 62 nights cruising aboard the Ocean Explorer, 2 nights in Montréal at the Sofitel Montréal Golden Mile, and 2 nights in Buenos Aires at the Sofitel Buenos Aires
  • We spend a total of 13 days at sea between destinations, mostly in South America
  • Sightseeing is usually offered in half-day tours, with time to relax every day

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

  • This is a tour for moderately active travelers. There are several walking tours throughout and your time in the Amazon is notably more active
  • Sightseeing takes place on air-conditioned/heated coaches or buses with guides
  • Footing can be uneven or challenging in some of the historic sites and coastal settings we visit. The cobbled streets of medieval Old Towns will also require care
  • Travelers must be able to climb in and out of a small excursion boat. On at least one occasion, you will need to embark and disembark from a small tender to get to shore
  • You will have the opportunity to swim, snorkel, kayak, and ride bikes
  • This cruise tour is not suitable for those who have difficulty walking or require wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair and handicapped traveler policy

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION

  • Most shore excursions, especially those in historic cities, the Amazon, and in coastal settings, require walking on uneven terrain
  • Shore excursions utilize air-conditioned shuttles, motorcoaches or buses. During the hotel-based land portion of this trip, a walking tour might leave directly from the hotel, or it too might utilize air-conditioned shuttles, motorcoaches or buses
  • On at least one occasion, we embark a small boat for an excursion to Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island
  • The journey to Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is by way of an open-air train
  • The tour to view the Meeting of the Waters and to fish for piranha utilizes a small excursion boat

CLIMATE

  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly
  • You will be traveling at and near the equator where the sun is strong, so we advise you to pack sunscreen and moisturizer (in the amounts permitted by TSA regulations), and bring a hat and sunglasses, as well. If you’re traveling in summer, be sure to bring very cool cotton or linen clothing
  • There is always a chance of rain, so bring a light rain jacket or umbrella

Please Note: Ocean cruising is not the same experience as river cruising; as such, you may experience fluctuating tides and weather patterns that may involve some rocking of your vessel. Itineraries will include all activities as planned except in extreme cases that can’t be controlled by your shipboard crew. Day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Cruise Director or regional expert.
