This expedition cruise gives you the chance to experience authentic adventure travel. Take a journey to Cape Horn and view the same incredible beauty that Charles Darwin enjoyed centuries ago or capture footage of marine life during your journey. The possibilities are endless. Experience wildlife and nature like you never have before with a Patagonia cruise.

Day 1

    Ushuaia

    Check in from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 409 San Martín St. Board cruise ship at 5:30 pm. After a welcome cocktail reception offered by the Captain and his crew the ship will depart for “the uttermost part of the earth”. Your Patagonia cruise takes 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.

    Day 2

      Cape Horn - Wulaia Bay

      Sail through Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where disembarking is scheduled (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 for sailboats between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and it is known as the “End of the Earth”. The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve in 2005.

      In the afternoon, go ashore at historical Wulaia Bay, originally the site of one of the region’s largest Yamana aboriginal settlement. Charles Darwin landed there in 1833, during his voyage on 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 3

        Giribaldi and Pia Glaciers

        Enter Garibaldi Fjord and disembark for a hike through the forest up to a glacial waterfall. For those who choose to stay onboard, the Captain will point the bow of the ship towards the beautiful blue Garibaldi Glacier to let you enjoy the the panoramic views 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.

        Day 4

          Ushuaia

          In the morning, arrive in Ushuaia, Argentina's most important city in Tierra del Fuego, and the southernmost city in the world. Disembark after breakfast for your continued adventures or return flights home.
