tour image
Day 3
Ushuaia – Australis Cruise
This morning you'll take a half-day tour to Tierra del Fuego National Park, to admire the firebushes, beech trees, ñires, box-leafed barberries and flowers including orchids and violets. You'll cross the Lapataia River, enjoy the magnificent view of Laguna Verde (Green Lagoon), then walk up to Laguna Negra (Black Lagoon). You'll also make a brief stop at the stunning Lake Roca. This afternoon, you'll board your ship and begin your cruise through the Beagle Channel and the Strait of Magellan to explore Southern Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego.

Day 4
Australis Cruise: Cape D’horn – Wulaia Bay
This morning, weather permitting, you'll disembark at Cape Horn National Park, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve known as the End of the Earth, as it's the last land before Antarctica. This afternoon, you'll visit Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the region's largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Here you will walk through a Magellanic subpolar forest to reach a look-out point.
tour image
Day 5
Australis Cruise: Pia & Garibaldi Glacier
Casting off from Wulaia Bay, we retrace our route to the Beagle Channel and sail westward along the southern edge of Tierra del Fuego into a section of Alberto de Agostini National Park called Glacier Alley or Avenue of the Glaciers. Flowing down from the Darwin Mountains and Darwin Ice Sheet are a number of impressive tidewater glaciers, most of them named after European countries -- Holland, Italy, Germany, Spain and France. In amongst this frozen league of nations we enter the narrow Pia Fjord and board the Zodiacs for a shore excursion to Pia Glacier Making our way further west along the Beagle Channel, we enter another long fjord and drop anchor near Garibaldi Glacier for another shore excursion. Garibaldi is one of only three glaciers in Patagonia gaining mass rather than staying the same or slowly shrinking. This time we hike through virgin Magellanic forest to a glacial waterfall, a towering wall of ferns and moss, and spectacular viewpoints looking down on the glacier and fjord. The walk is demanding -- very steep, negligible trail, rough footing -- and not for everyone. For those who choose to stay onboard, our captain will point the bow towards the beautiful sky blue Garibaldi Glacier so everyone can enjoy the panoramic view from the upper decks.

Day 6
Australis Cruise: Aguila & Condor Glaciers
Early in the morning, we will sail through the Cockburn Channel and enter Agostini Sound. From there it is possible to see the glaciers that descend from the middle of the Darwin Mountain Range -- some of them reaching the water. This morning, we will disembark and go for an easy walk around a lagoon, which was formed by the melting of the Águila Glacier. We will reach a spot right in front of that glacier with stunning views. In the afternoon, we will approach the Condor Glacier via Zodiac -- and hopefully see some of the abundant Andean Condors in the area.

Day 7
Australis Cruise: Magdalena Island – Punta Arenas
Early this morning, you'll visit Magdalena Island, once an essential source of supplies for explorers in the Strait of Magellan, to see the immense colony of Magellanic penguins. (In September and April this excursion is replaced by a Zodiac boat ride at Isla Marta to observe sea lions.) Afterwards, you'll sail to Punta Arenas, where your cruise comes to an end, then transfer by land to Puerto Natales, where you'll have the evening at leisure.
tour image
Day 8
Puerto Natales – Torres Del Paine – Puerto Natales

You'll then continue to Torres del Paine through the stunning Amarga Lagoon area, where you can enjoy watching red foxes and condors, as well as taking in the panoramic views of the Paine mountain range. You'll pass Nordenskjold and Pehoé lakes, where you can expect to see guanacos and lesser rheas or ñandúes, then make the 10-minute hike past the astonishing Salto Grande (Large Waterfall) to an inn for lunch. In the afternoon, you'll continue towards the glacier area, and enjoy a hike through forests of lengas and the breathtaking ice floes of the Grey glacier.

Named after the berry that, once eaten, guarantees your return to Patagonia, El Calafate, where your four day tour begins and ends, hooks you with another irresistible attraction . . . the Glacier Perito Moreno. Located around 50 miles outside the city in Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, this glacier is a magnificent must-see, and its massive popularity has encouraged huge growth and rapid development in the once-quaint El Calafate. Thanks to tourists, the town is now a fun place to be and has a big range of attractions.
