Adventure Life's Patagonia experts have selected the best small ships for exploring the fjords and glaciers of Patagonia and beyond to Antarctica. Punta Arenas, Chile and Ushuaia , Argentina are the two major ports in Patagonia. Ushuaia is the gateway to Antarctica as the majority of all cruises embark and disembark there, whereas many cruises to Antarctica use Punta Arenas as a port of call and for beginning the popular flight/cruise trips to Antarctica. The small ships Via Australis and Stella Australis have 4 -day5-day, 6-day, and 8-day itineraries sailing through the Fjords of Tierra del Fuego, the Straight of Magellan and stunning views of Marinelli Glacier dropping from the Darwin Mountains into the sea.
