Argentina Cruzeros Australis Cruise (4 Nights/5 Days)


Day 1: Depart Ushuaia (B)

Cruise ship boarding between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. The Captain and crew give a welcome cocktail reception on board. Afterwards, the ship departs for “the uttermost part of the earth.” Our excursion will take us through the Beagle Channel and the Strait of Magellan to explore one of the most captivating wilderness regions in the world: Southern Patagonia, and Tierra del Fuego. We have just embarked on a Great Adventure!

Day 2: Cruise Cape Horn - Wulaia Bay (B,L,D)

We 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, 425-meter (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 look-out point.

Day 3: Pia  & Garibaldi Glaciers (B,L,D)

In the morning we will navigate the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel, to enter the Pia Fjord and disembark for a walk up to the vantage point overlooking the stunning glacier 

Day 4 Agostini Sound-Aguila Glacier-Condor Glacier (B,L,D)

We  will cruise through the Agostini Sound where we will disembark and go for a easy walk around the lagoon,which was formed by the melting of the Aguila Glacier. In the afternoon , we will approach the Condor Glacier by  zodiac and hopefully see some of the abundant condors in the area  

Day 5: Magdalena Island - Punta Arenas (B)

Early in the morning, we go ashore on Magdalena Island (weather permitting). Located in the Strait of Magellan, it was an essential source of supplies for navigators and explorers in the past. The island is inhabited by an immense colony of Magellanic Penguins which can be sighted during our walk to a lighthouse, which guides ships on their way through the strait. After our visit, we sail to Punta Arenas, disembarking at 11:30 a.m
