DESCRIPTION

Explore the southernmost region of the world aboard the new Stella Australis Expedition Cruiser. From October to April each year you can navigate through the Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel, travelling through fjords, bays, glaciers and islands located between the Chilean city of Punta Arenas and the Argentinean city of Ushuaia. You'll reach the mythical Cape Horn, the last headland in the continent, the place where the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean merge.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

Punta Arenas, Ainsworth Bay & Tuckers Islet, Pia Glacier & Glacier Alley, Cape Horn & Wulaia Bay



Itinerary


departure-calendar


Check in at Magallanes 990, Punta Arenas, between 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., with cruise ship boarding scheduled for 6:00 p.m. The captain and crew give a welcome cocktail reception on board and afterwards the ship departs on your great adventure!

At dawn, we continue navigating through Almirantazgo Sound, arriving at Ainsworth Bay, inside the Alberto De Agostini National Park. From a distance we may see the Marinelli Glacier which descends from the Darwin Mountain Range, and we will learn how life begins after the retreat of the ice. We will also take a walk to discover a beaver dam in the marvelous subpolar Magellanic forest. On the beach, we will try to see elephant seals, but we cannot guarantee this as the precise location of the colony is unpredictable. Later, we sail to Tuckers Islets, and after lunch we board the Zodiac boats to view Magellanic Penguins (which only live in the Southern Hemisphere), and Cormorants. In September and April this excursion is replaced by Brookes Bay where we land for a short walk to approach a glacier.

We navigate along the main part of the Beagle Channel to reach Pia Fjord, where we disembark near Pia Glacier. We take a short hike to a look-out point with a spectacular view of the entire glacier tongue, stretching from high in the mountains all the way to the sea. After this unforgettable experience, we continue sailing along the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel through majestic Glacier Alley

We sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where we will disembark (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 between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and it is known as the End of the Earth¬Ě. The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005. In the afternoon, we go ashore at historic Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the regions largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed here on January 23rd, 1833, during the voyage of the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for the mesmerizing beauty of its vegetation and geography. We will walk through a Magellanic forest of Lengas, Coihues, Canelos, ferns, and other native vegetation to reach a look-out point.

Arrive at Ushuaia, Argentina’s most important and southernmost city in the world on Tierra del Fuego. Disembark at 8:00 a.m.
