The Fjords of Tierra del Fuego

The expedition cruise ship M/V Stella Australis takes you on an amazing journey to the “uttermost end of the earth.”  Sailing between Punta Arenas (Chile) and Ushuaia (Argentina), discover the splendour and beauty of Patagonia’s unique wildlife and landscapes.

This scenic maritime route through the fjords of the southern edge of Tierra del Fuego highlights the stunning, natural beauty of Patagonia and several of its most important historical sites.  This five-day journey includes visits to wildlife rich Ainsworth Bay, massive Pia Glacier and Glacier Alley, as well as mystical Wulaia Bay and the legendary Cape Horn.

Along the way learn about others who have explored the same waters — Ferdinand Magellan and Sir Francis Drake, Captain FitzRoy and Charles Darwin. All the while on the lookout for whales, dolphins, penguins, condors, elephant seals and the other creatures who call this remote part of the world their home.
