San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
Antarctica may very well be the last frontier for cruise travelers, but Viator.com – the leading resource for researching and booking tours and activities worldwide – has now made it easier to experience the adventure of a lifetime with six new tours that visit the White Continent’s top attractions. Can’t wait until November (Antarctica’s high season) to set sail? Viator offers multi-day cruises and river tours, available throughout the summer, in other popular destinations worldwide including Europe, South America, Asia and more.
Ice is Nice in Antarctica
Antarctica offers travelers a frosted wilderness of glistening white as far as the eye can see, with numerous opportunities to view magnificent natural ice sculptures as well as seals, penguins, whales and other marine mammals. Viator tours departing from the world’s southernmost city – Ushuaia, Argentina – include 11-, 15- and 20-day itineraries through the Beagle Channel, Drake Passage and Antarctic Circle to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, Antarctic Peninsula and Shetland Islands. Shorter cruises departing from Punta Arenas, Chile include 8-, 9- and 11-day itineraries, also offering multiple opportunities for travelers to be mesmerized by icebergs, wildlife and more along the way.
Exploring Europe’s Vacation Hotspot, Croatia
Croatia’s rare blend of glamour and old-fashioned authenticity make it Europe’s “it” destination, where beaches and sunshine vie for attention with cultural treasures and ancient architecture. Viator’s new 7-Day Dalmation Coast Tour of Croatia: Dubrovnik, Hvar, Korcula and Split, from Dubrovnik to Split, allows travelers to explore quaint island towns encased in medieval city walls and relax on idyllic pebble beaches along the clearest waters in the Mediterranean region. The 8-Day Independent Dalmation Coast Tour from Split to Dubrovnik includes a similar itinerary, but allows travelers to island hop at their own pace.
Navigating the World’s Largest River, the Amazon
The lush Amazonian terrain can be tough to tackle via land exploration alone, which is why Viator’s multi-day cruises are a perfect way for travelers to experience the jungle in comfort and style. The 4-Day Amazon River Luxury Cruise from Iquitos on the Aqua, an exclusive and luxurious riverboat, allows adventurous travelers to fish for piranhas, hike through the jungle, explore native villages and enjoy wildlife encounters at the 5-million acre Pacaya Samiria Reserve. Similar cruises are available on other luxury riverboats, the Delfin I and the Aria.
Discover the Essence of Vietnam along the Mekong Delta
Vietnam’s Mekong Delta is a water landscape of green fields and quaint riverside towns exuding a unique charm, where travelers can sample fruits bartered in the colorful floating markets or dine on home-cooked delicacies. Viator’s 4-Day Mekong Delta Small-Group Tour from Ho Chi Minh City visits temples, pagodas and floating markets while travelers enjoy bamboo-weaving and coconut-processing demonstrations.
