Since 1990, Australis has been a respected expert in the region and its main attractions. With a fleet of two specially designed ships capable of reaching remote corners, they offer four and eight-night programs from September to April, connecting Punta Arenas (in Chile) and Ushuaia (in Argentina).

Travelers aboard Australis enjoy world-class, all-inclusive services and gain insights into one of the most unspoiled regions on the planet. Navigating a maze of fjords, they reach the legendary Cape Horn and witness pristine nature, home to beautiful flora and fauna, including Magellanic penguins and dolphins.

Australis's excursions on Zodiac boats take passengers through key landmarks of Tierra del Fuego, the Strait of Magellan, and the Beagle Channel. They approach massive glaciers and explore thriving forests in the midst of the Darwin mountain range. Onboard, passengers revel in premium service, exquisite décor, and comfortable lounges and cabins, all featuring panoramic windows.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
