Nomads of the Seas, Patagonian adventure acquire an entire new meaning aboard the Atmosphere.

Guillermo Rodríguez, Chilean renowned chef, and President of the Chilean chapter of Les Toques Blanches, will introduce our guests to the unique flavors of the Chilean cuisine, blending these to international standards.

The best wines have been chosen for Nomads of the Seas, all of them combine with our gastronomy so each dish is paired with its perfect match. The wines were chosen from different Chilean vineyards, many of them are not known to mass consumers. This is why Nomads worked, with Guillermo Rodriguez’s team to choose the most adequate wine for each dish served on board.

Rest and relaxation are an essential part of the adventure aboard Atmosphere. To this end, Nomads of the Seas created a program to achieve a different and reenergizing connection in direct contact with the natural elements. Its Spa experience includes connecting to the richness of the sea and its regenerating properties through the hot tubs, located on the fifth deck.

The privileged view of the surrounding landscape, in addition to the hot water, will award guests with a repairing rest. The sauna and a massage table, also located on this deck, are the perfect complement for the tubs. They can be enjoyed alone, with wine or cocktails, which are permanently available.

At Nomads we want guests to feel at home. They can wander through the ship’s comfortable accommodations, talking with the ships crew and guides, admiring the view or meeting up with the select group of passengers. Our ship is accordingly transformed into a warm refuge after guests have enjoyed the area’s great beauty, and extreme geographical conditions.

THE ATMOSPHERE

When Nomads of the Seas was just a project, the elements that the mothership should have were already clear: it must be an intimate, comfortable and stylish design vessel, where each space should be created to provide its guests with maximum comfort and safety.

The second must was that it should be able to carry a complete and sophisticated aero maritime system that carried the passengers deep into the wild and mythical Patagonia even in the hardest geographical conditions.
