  • Spending a day touring spectacular Pia glacier and Glacier Alley
  • Navigate through the famous Beagle Channel
  • Chance to go ashore on Cape Horn at the "End of the Earth"
  • Board zodiac boats to view Magellanic penguins and cormorants up close!

Cruise through the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel aboard a small luxury expedition ship. You will also have a chance to explore two of the most beautiful and untouched places on Earth: Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, and visit Cape Horn known as the "End of the Earth."

Short on time? We also offer a 4-day cruise in the opposite direction from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas. Please call for details.

Day 1: Punta Arenas

Upon your arrival in Punta Arenas, check in at 990 Magallanes St. from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Board cruise ship at 6:00 pm. After a welcome cocktail reception offered by the Captain and his crew the ship will depart for “the uttermost part of the earth”. Our trip takes us through the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel to explore one of the most breathtaking wilderness regions in the world: Southern Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego.

  • Dinner

Day 2: Ainsworth Bay & Tuckers Islet

At dawn, we'll continue navigating through Almirantazgo Sound arriving at Ainsworth Bay inside of Alberto De Agostini National Park. From a distance we may see the Marinelli Glacier which descends from the Darwin Mountain Range, and we learn how life begins after the retreat of the ice. We will also take a walk to discover a beaver dam in the marvelous subpolar Magellanic forest. On the beach, we may see elephant seals, but we cannot guarantee this as the precise location of the colony is unpredictable. Later, we'll sail to Tuckers Islets, and after lunch we board zodiac boats to view Magellanic Penguins, which only live in the Southern Hemisphere, and cormorants. In September and April this excursion is replaced by a trip to Brookes Bay, where we land for a short walk to a glacier.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

Day 3: Pia Glacier & Glacier Alley

We'll navigate along the main part of the Beagle Channel to reach Pia Fjord, where we disembark near Pia Glacier. We take a short hike to a look-out point with a spectacular view of the entire glacier tongue, stretching from high in the mountains all the way to the sea. After this unforgettable experience, we'll continue sailing along the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel through majestic “Glacier Alley.”

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

Day 4: Cape Horn & Wulaia Bay

We'll sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where we will disembark (weather permitting). The mythical Cape Horn was discovered in 1616, and it is a sheer, 1,394-foot high rocky promontory. For many years it was an important navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and it is known as the “End of the Earth.” The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005.

In the afternoon, we go ashore at historic Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the region’s largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed here on January 23rd, 1833, during the voyage of the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for the mesmerizing beauty of its vegetation and geography. We will walk through a Magellanic forest of Lengas, Coihues, Canelos, ferns, and other native vegetation to reach a lookout point.
