On a Patagonia cruise, you'll marvel at the towering fjords that define the windswept landscapes of coastal Patagonia and the legendary Tierra del Fuego at the southernmost tip of the South American continent. As you navigate the jagged stony fjords, carved by ice, from Ushuaia, Argentina to Punta Arenas, Chile, you'll see the wonders of the Straight of Magellan, like the towering snowcapped peaks of Karukinka Natural Park, Admiralty Sound, the Magdalena Channel, and Glacier Alley. Witness stunning waterfalls on hikes and get up close to the fjords in zodiacs, offering an unparalleled point of view to see  penguins and seabirds. Follow in the footsteps of explorers like Darwin and Captain FitzRoy as you round Cape Horn, visiting Nassau Bay in the waters of the Drake Passage. Start planning your Patagonia fjord cruise today!
