Private Independent Travel

Day 1

    Punta Arenas

    Check in at Magallanes 990, Punta Arenas, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Cruise ship boarding at 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”. Your excursion will take you 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. You have just embarked on a Great Adventure!

    Day 2

      Ainsworth Bay - Tucker Islet

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

      Day 3

        Pia Glacier - Glacier Alley

        Navigate along the main part of the Beagle Channel to reach Pia Fjord, where you will disembark near Pia Glacier. 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, continue sailing along the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel through majestic “Glacier Alley”.

        Day 4

          Cape Horn and Wulaia Bay

          Sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where you 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, 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. Walk through a Magellan forest of lengas, coigües, canelos, ferns, and other endemic vegetation to reach a panoramic viewpoint.

          Day 5

            Ushuaia

            Arrival at Ushuaia, Argentina’s most important city on Tierra del Fuego, and the southernmost city in the world. Disembark after breakfast for your continued adventures or return flights home.
