Private Independent Travel

Set sail in Patagonia on this 4-day cruise around Cape Horn and through Glacier Alley. View the magnificent blue glaciers of the region and hike through the pristine forests which overlook the sea.

Day 1


    Board the M/V Stella Australis 5:30 PM and settle in to your cabin. Attend a welcome cocktail reception, hosted by the Captain and his crew, and embark on your cruise through Patagonia. Set sail for the Strait of Magellan, the Beagle Channel, and the Tierra del Fuego archipelago.

    Day 2

      Cape Horn / Wulaia Bay

      Sail through Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park. The legendary Cape Horn was discovered in 1616 and is a sheer 1,394-foot rocky promontory. For many years, it was an important navigation route between the Pacific and the Atlantic, and is often referred to as the 'End of the Earth.' The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2005.

      In the afternoon, go ashore at historic Wulaia Bay, originally the site of one of the region's largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed at the settlement in 1833 during his voyage on the HMS Beagle. The area is renowned for the mesmerizing beauty of its vegetation and geography. Take an enchanted walk through the Magellan Forest of lengas, coigues, canelos, ferns, and other endemic vegetation to reach a panoramic viewpoint.

      Day 3

        Garibaldi Glacier / Pia Glacier / Glacier Alley

        In the morning, enter Garibaldi Fjord and disembark for a hike through the forest. If you choose to stay onboard, the Captain will point the bow towards the beautiful blue Garibaldi Glacier, so you can enjoy the panoramic view from the upper decks.

        In the afternoon, navigate along the Northwest arm of the Beagle Channel and reach Pia Fjord. Disembark and take a short hike to gain a panoramic view of the spectacular Pia Glacier, which extends from the mountaintops down to the sea. Return to the ship and continue along the Beagle Channel through the majestic Glacier Alley.

        Day 4


          Return to Ushuaia and disembark after breakfast. Transfer to the airport for your onward flights.
