Itinerary

  • Day01

    Arrive in Punta Arenas

    Arrive in Punta Arenas and board your cruise ship. After a welcome cocktail reception, the ship will depart, traveling 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.

  • Day02

    Explore Ainsworth Bay & Tuckers Islet

    Arrive at Ainsworth Bay inside of Alberto De Agostini National Park, and view the Marinelli Glacier from a distance (weather allowing). Walk to a beaver dam in the marvelous subpolar Magellanic forest and look for elephant seals on the beach. Then, sail to Tuckers Islet and board a Zodiac to view Magellanic Penguins, which only live in the Southern Hemisphere. In September and April, this excursion is replaced by a trip to Brookes Bay, where we land for a short walk to a glacier.

    Cruise Pia Glacier & Glacier Alley

    Cruise the Beagle Channel and enter a narrow fjord before disembarking near Pia Glacier. Take a short hike to a lookout 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, continue sailing along the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel through majestic "Glacier Alley."

    Wulaia Bay & Sail Cape Horn

    Sail through the Murray Channel between Navarino and Hoste islands and drop anchor at historic Wulaia Bay, an area renowned for its mesmerizing beauty, and stroll through a Magellanic forest to reach a lookout point with sweeping views. In the afternoon we cruise across Nassau Bay and disembark at Cape Horn National Park (weather permitting). This sheer, rocky promontory is known as the "End of the Earth" and is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
