Patagonia Explorer: Cruise and Hiking Adventure in Chile & Argentina

Trip Length 13 days

From $8,395

  • See the very best of Patagonia on the only cruise ship allowed to sail where the Atlantic and Pacific meet
  • Enjoy rare accesss to remote Chilean fjords and mythical Cape Horn, where opportunities to see calving glaciers and incredible wildlife abound
  • Hike in stunning Torres del Paine National Park, with its sky-piercing rock spires, and see the famed Perito Moreno Glacier
  • Reap the benefits of our 40+ years of experience in Patagonia with top-notch, expert guides leading the way!

Nature really outdoes herself in this corner of the world: golden pampas beneath a boundless sky, forests of gnarled trees akin to oversized bonsai, towering fjords and glaciers forgotten by the last ice age. The sheer amount and variety of Patagonia’s beauty is staggering and we’ve crafted the ultimate itinerary to show you the very best of it. On this 12-day exploration, you’ll see where the Pacific and Atlantic oceans merge on a cruise through the indescribable—and otherwise inaccessible—fjords and inlets of Chilean Patagonia, home to a rich bounty of wildlife like elephant seals and Magellanic penguins. Later, take day hikes around the ice-clad peaks and granite needles of the Torres del Paine, 8,000 feet of near-vertical granite rising from rolling grasslands and beautiful lakes, and see the renowned Perito Moreno Glacier on a full-day excursion. Earth and ice, sea and sky, activity and luxury. This is the ultimate Patagonia experience!
 

Day 1: Arrive in Punta Arenas

Upon your arrival in Punta Arenas, Chile, on the northern shore of the Strait of Magellan, your trip leader will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel. In the evening the group will gather for a briefing on the adventure ahead.

  • Dinner
  • Accommodation:Hotel Cabo de Hornos

Day 2: En route to Torres del Paine National Park

From Punta Arenas we’ll drive about three hours across the Patagonian plains to the quiet fishing town of Puerto Natales on the shores of Seno Ultima Esperanza (Last Hope Sound). Here we’ll stretch our legs a bit and have lunch before continuing on to Torres del Paine National Park, where we'll take in the first spectacular views of the Paine Massif (weather permitting). There is also a very good chance of seeing guanacos—small cousins to the camel and llama—on the way to the park. Because the sun sets late in Patagonia's summer, there's plenty of time to admire and photograph the amazing landscape. In the evening we'll settle in at Hotel Las Torres, ideally situated for our exploration of Paine at just 5 miles from the base of the Torres del Paine.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Hotel Las Torres

Days 3-5: Hike in Torres del Paine National Park

Over the next few days, we'll enjoy day hikes among the ice-clad peaks and granite needles of the Torres del Paine (10,000')—3,000 feet of nearvertical granite rising from rolling grasslands and beautiful lakes. We plan to walk along a trail by Laguna Verde, which sports native beech forest and wonderful views of the Paine Massif, ultimately reaching one of the best lookouts of Lago Toro and the mountain range beyond. Other hiking opportunities include: a short walk to see the Salto Grande waterfall, beautifully located in front of the Horns (Los Cuernos) of Paine; a strenuous 8- to 10-hour hike to the base of Las Torres, the famous “towers of Paine”; or a hike on a nature trail to watch llama-like guanacos and view cave paintings drawn by the original  inhabitants. Hikes are dependent on the weather, abilities, and the interests of the group.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Hotel Las Torres

Day 6: Travel to El Calafate, Argentina

Today we depart Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park and drive across the border into Argentina (please be prepared for delays of up to a few hours while crossing the border). We'll proceed over the flat grassland steppes to the town of El Calafate, located on the southern shore of glacial lake called Lago Argentino. El Calafate is the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park and is a great town to explore. You trip leader will recommend restaurants for your dinner on your own tonight.

  • Breakfast/Lunch
  • Accommodation:Hotel Posada Los Alamos

Day 7: Perito Moreno Glacier

Today we'll enjoy a full-day excursion to Los Glaciares National Park to see the renowned Perito Moreno glacier. At this very active glacier, a 200-foot-high headwall continually calves massive blocks of ice into the lake with a thunderous roar—an awesome spectacle of nature's power at work. Hiking options are available, depending on the weather: admire the amazing glacier from different viewpoints on a 2-mile footbridge walk; or sail by catamaran across the lake to walk on the glacier itself (this walk is available for travelers aged 65 or younger). We'll enjoy a picnic lunch and return to El Calafate at the end of our day. Dinner tonight will be on your
own.

  • Breakfast/Lunch
  • Accommodation:Hotel Posada Los Alamos

Day 8: Fly to Ushuaia

Today we'll fly to Ushuaia, Argentina, a small bustling town located in a dramatic setting at the base of several snowcapped mountains. Upon arrival we'll transfer to Los Cauquenes Resort & Spa, before hiking in nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park. The park is known for its rich plant species and abundant birdlife, including numerous shorebirds (cormorants, grebes, steamer ducks, kelp geese, and more) as well as less common Andean condors and black-browed albatross.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Los Cauquenes Resort and Spa

Day 9: Board the Ventus Australis

Take a morning hike in Tierra del Fuego before transferring to the port for luggage check-in in the afternoon. We'll board the 210-passenger Ventus Australis. After enjoying a welcome cocktail, the ship will depart for the Strait of Magellan and our cruise adventure can begin!

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Ventus Australis

Day 10: Cape Horn & Wulaia Bay

By early morning, Ventus Australis is cruising across Nassau Bay into the remote archipelago that includes Cape Horn National Park. Weather and sea conditions permitting, we shall go ashore on the windswept island that harbors legendary Cape Horn (Cabo de Hornos). Discovered in 1616 by a Dutch maritime expedition -- and named after the town of Hoorn in West Friesland -- Cape Horn is a sheer 425-meter (1,394-foot) high rocky promontory overlooking the turbulent waters of the Drake Passage. For many years it was the only navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic, and was often referred to as the "End of the Earth." The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2005. The Chilean navy maintains a permanent lighthouse on the island, staffed by a lightkeeper and his family, as well as the tiny Stella Maris Chapel and modern Cape Horn Monument.
Sailing back across Nassau Bay, we anchor at fabled Wulaia Bay, one of the few places in the archipelago where the human history is just as compelling as the natural environment. Originally the site of one of the region’s largest Yámana aboriginal settlements, the bay was described by Charles Darwin and sketched by Captain FitzRoy in the 1830s during their voyages on the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for its mesmerizing beauty and dramatic geography. After a visit to the Australis-sponsored museum in the old radio station -- which is especially strong on the Yámana people and European missionaries in the area -- passengers have a choice of three hikes (of increasing degrees of difficulty) that ascend the heavily wooden mountain behind the bay. On all of these you will be strolling through an enchanted Magellan forest of lengas, coigües, canelos, ferns, and other endemic fauna to reach a panoramic viewpoint overlooking the bay. Before leaving Wulaia Bay, drop something into the wooden mail barrel inside the museum – letters or postcards meant to be hand delivered by future travelers – an ancient mariner tradition revived by Australis.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Ventus Australis

Day 11: Pia Glacier and Garibaldi Glacier

Casting off from Wulaia Bay, we retrace our route to the Beagle Channel and sail westward along the southern edge of Tierra del Fuego into a section of Alberto de Agostini National Park called Glacier Alley or Avenue of the Glaciers. Flowing down from the Darwin Mountains and Darwin Ice Sheet are a number of impressive tidewater glaciers, most of them named after European countries -- Holland, Italy, Germany, Spain and France. In  amongst this frozen league of nations we enter the narrow Pia Fjord and board the Zodiacs for a shore excursion to Pia Glacier. No one knows for certain how the hulking glacier got its feminine moniker, but one theory says it was named for princess Maria Pia of Savoy (1847-1911), daughter of the Italian king. After disembarking we take a hort hike to gain a panoramic view of the spectacular glacier, which extends from the mountaintops down to the sea or a longer much more difficult walk up a lateral moraine of the old Pia Glacier.
Making our way further west along the Beagle Channel, we enter another long fjord and drop anchor near Garibaldi Glacier for another shore excursion. Garibaldi is one of only three glaciers in Patagonia gaining mass rather than staying the same or slowly shrinking. This time we hike through virgin Magellanic forest to a glacial waterfall, a towering wall of ferns and moss, and spectacular viewpoints looking down on the glacier and fjord. The walk is demanding -- very steep, negligible trail, rough footing -- and not for everyone. For those who choose to stay onboard, our captain will point the bow towards the beautiful sky blue Garibaldi Glacier so everyone can enjoy the panoramic view from the upper decks.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Ventus Australis

Day 12: Agostini Sound – Águila Glacier – Cóndor Glacier

Early in the morning, we will sail through the Cockburn Channel and enter Agostini Sound. From there it is possible to see the glaciers that descend from the middle of the Darwin Mountain Range -- some of them reaching the water. This morning, we will disembark and go for an easy walk around a lagoon, which was formed by the melting of the Águila Glacier. We will reach a spot right in front of that glacier with stunning views. In the afternoon, we will approach the Condor Glacier via Zodiac -- and hopefully see some of the abundant Andean Condors in the area.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Ventus Australis

Day 13: Magdalena Island & Punta Arenas

After an overnight cruise that takes us back into the Strait of Magellan, we anchor off Magdalena Island, which lies about halfway between Tierra del Fuego and the Chilean mainland. Crowned by a distinctive lighthouse, the island used to be an essential source of supplies for navigators and explorers and is inhabited by an immense colony of Magellanic penguins. At the break of dawn, weather permitting, we go ashore and hike a path that leads through thousands of penguins to a small museum lodged inside the vintage 1902 lighthouse. Many other bird species are also found on the island. In September and April -- when the penguins dwell elsewhere -- this excursion is replaced by a ride aboard Zodiacs to Marta Island to observe South American sea lions After a short sail south along the strait, disembarkation at Punta Arenas is scheduled for around 11:30 AM.

If you can’t bring yourself to depart South America just yet (and we certainly couldn’t blame you), consider joining one of our extensions, including Easter Island and the Atacama Desert, amongst others. Ask our regional specialist for details.
