Australis Cruises to Patagonia and Cape Horn

With decades of experience in the region of South America, Australis will take you on a journey to discover amazing new places. Australis is much more than a cruise ship, as it explores the untamed wonderland of Patagonia. Go on exiting trips to the Fjords of Terra del Fuego, explore glaciers, see penguins and visit the hazardous Cape Horn.

Visit the “outermost end of the Earth” on contemporary expedition cruise ships that ply the wilderness at the bottom end of South America. As you navigate through Patagonia, you will see wildlife on full display. The voyages to the legendary Strait of Magellan, Cape Horn and the remote islets of Tierra del Fuego are only visited by approximately a thousand tourists each year. Now, you can be one of them.


Patagonia (Ushuaia – Punta Arenas)

Start your adventure from Ushuaia, Argentina to Punta Arenas in Chile, on board the fearless Stella Australis. You’ll discover the majestic landscapes and wildlife while enjoying a relaxed, cosy atmosphere on board. Trips are also part of the itinerary.

Fjords of Tierra del Fuego

The cruise to Patagonia trails the fjords of the southern part of Tierra del Fuego highpoints. You’ll visit the spectacular display of Patagonia’s beauty, as well as some of its most important historical sites.

Gauchos, Glaciers and Penguins

The first ever trip of its kind, the Gauchos, Glaciers & Penguins Patagonia adventure cruise involves a round-trip experience from Punta Arenas. The beautiful landscapes and wildlife of Tierra del Fuego will be explored by land and sea.  While cruising around Cape Horn, you will also visit a small colony of King Penguins. You will then spend the night at Tierra del Fuego and visit an estancia for a true gaucho meal the following day.

Cape Horn

Arguably the most exciting attraction of the cruise is visiting Cape Horn, the UNESCO biosphere reserve. The headland is situated at 55°58′ south and 67°16′ west, at the very end of South America. To give you a sailor’s perspective on this unique attraction, it is said that “Below 40 degrees latitude, there is no law. Below 50 degrees, there is no God.”

For those who sailed through the seas “around the horn”, this saw them putting their life into the hands of the biggest force on Earth - nature. The landmark is of great historic importance, as since its discovery in 1616, it has revolutionised sailing by offering seamen a faster route.
