4 Day - Cruise Australis / USH - P Arenas

Fixed Departure dates.

4 Days

Come visit "the far ends of the earth" aboard Cruceros Australis's modern cruise ships the Mare Australis and the all new Via Australis, and explore the legendary channels and waterways plied by the early European navigators and the native inhabitants of this remote South American region, who were the first ones to venture through Tierra del Fuego and reach Cape Horn, the last rocky promontory of the American continent... an area as beautiful as it is untamed... more pristine and captivating than you ever  imagined.

NOTE: 4 nights' cruise from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas with Via Australis is also available on request.

Rates for Christmas and New Year's period are available on request.

Day 1

Ushuaia

Check in at San Martín 245, Ushuaia, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., embark the Expedition Cruise Ship Mare Australis. The Captain and crew will give a welcome cocktail reception on board. Immediately afterward, the ship will set sail for “the uttermost part of the earth.” Through the mythical Strait of Magellan, we will travel to Southern Patagonia, including Tierra de Fuego. This is the beginning of a Great Adventure!

Day 2

Cape Horn – Wulaia Bay

We will sail through the Beagle and Murray Channels to disembark in Cape Horn National Park. Cape Horn, a sheer, almost 425-meter-high promontory, where the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean merge, was discovered in 1616 by the Dutch commercial expedition organized by Isaac Le Maire. The Cape owes its name to the Port of Hoorn, the expedition’s departure point. In the afternoon we will disembark in historical Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the region’s largest native settlements. This area is also renowned for the spectacular beauty of its vegetation and geography. We will walk through a Magellanic forest filled with Lengas, Coigües, Canelos, ferns and other species to reach a look-out point.

Day 4

Magdalena Island – Punta Arenas

Early in the morning, we go ashore on Magdalena Island, the home of an immense colony of more than 120,000 Magellanic Penguins that we can watch during our walk to a lighthouse, which guides ships on their way through the Strait of Magellan. The island’s penguins migrate in April; as a replacement we visit Marta Island, to observe a sea lion colony. After our visit, we sail to Punta Arenas, disembarking at 11:30 a.m
