Australis Cruises

Chilean Patagonia, Chile

Australis Cruises are for those who want to explore the wild and beautiful Patagonian fjords. Cruises operate from October to April between Punta Arenas in Chile and Ushuaia in Argentina, for either three or four nights. You will sail through the Straits of Magellan, the Beagle Channel and around Cape Horn on a journey through fjords, glaciers and islands. There are 2 cruise ships, the Via Australis is smaller and offers 64 cabins whilst the newer Stella Australis is more luxurious and offers 100 cabins and also a gym.

A highlight for many, weather permitting, is landing at Cape Horn and walking to the monument at the southernmost tip of the continent. Travel by zodiacs to explore uninhabited islands that provide sanctuary for many local birds as well as sea lions, and, occasionally, whales. Land excursions allow you to take a close look at penguins, elephant seals and an amazing array of birdlife. Your expedition leaders will help you identify and learn about the region’s flora, fauna, geography and history.
