Sailing at the end of the world aboard the Stella Australis offers an unforgettable journey.
Outfitted with superb cabins to capture sensational views this cruise will take you to remote coves and narrow channels and fjords in Chilean Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, and through the Beagle Channel, stopping in Puerto Williams on Isla Navarino and of course Ushuaia in Argentina – at “the end of the world”.
Part of what makes this cruise special is the intimacy of a smaller ship and its solitary route that takes passengers to places in Tierra del Fuego that few have a chance to see, travelling through one of the most remote and beautiful places on the planet. Passengers are shuttled to shore via zodiacs (motorized inflatable boats) for two daily excursions. Of course no cruise would be complete without several land stops. These can include visits to elephant seal rookeries, impressive beaver dams and the magnificent glaciers. The onboard bilingual guides offer fascinating daily talks about the region’s flora, fauna, history, and geology.
The trip can be done as a 4-night one-way from Punta Arenas; or a 3-night one-way journey from Ushuaia. The 4 night cruises are the most popular as they take in Glacier Alley and Pia Glacier.
