Amazing ferry rides

Chile: The Patagonian fjords

This epic ferry ride spans 800 miles over four days, treating passengers to views of isolated estuaries and gulfs, massive ice fields and fjords slashed into the Andes. The boat even approaches the dramatic face of Pío XI or Brüggen Glacier, which, at 488sqm, is the largest glacier in South America. Toast your adventure with pisco sours made with iceberg ice that the crew collects from Pío XI.

Hong Kong: Between Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong

This short, sweet and cheap ferry ride transports you across Victoria Harbour from one shore of dazzling skyscrapers to another. Set out at dusk, when the office towers glow in multicoloured lights that rival the soft blues, pinks and purples of the sunset sky. Linger to admire the view from the rooftop Pier 7 Café and Bar at the Central Star Ferry Pier 7. (Courtesy of A. Howden - Hong Kong Stock Photography / Alamy)
