"An Australis cruise is an exhilarating way to explore the wild and beautiful fjords in the far south of Chile."

Chilean Patagonia Holidays

Chilean Patagonia is a vast region with its ice-fields, stunning blue lakes set against the backdrop of the Andes and its remote, rugged territory. 
 

Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine - the most spectacular national park in Chile and probably its best known - is a few hours drive from Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales in the far south of this long thin country. Torres del Paine National Park is famed for its impressive and iconic granite pillars but will also take your breath away with its awe-inspiring glaciers, pristine vividly coloured lakes and magnificent rugged wide plains, perfect for hikers and horse-riders alike. If you prefer something a little less challenging but still want to immerse yourself in the beautiful landscapes, you can take a scenic boat trip on Last Hope Sound or Lago Grey.

Punta Arenas, Australis Cruises & Adventures to the Antarctic

Punta Arenas is Chile's most southerly city and the main arrival gateway by air for a tour of Torres del Paine. It is also home to the port from where you can take an expedition cruise through the fjords to Cape Horn and on to Ushuaia in Argentina.

An Australis cruise is the ideal way to explore the wild and beautiful Patagonian fjords. Cruises operate from September to April between Punta Arenas and Ushuaia for either 
three or four nights. You sail through the Straits of Magellan, the Beagle Channel and around Cape Horn on a journey past fjords, glaciers and islands. A highlight, weather permitting, is landing at Cape Horn and walking to
 the monument at the southernmost tip of the continent. Zodiacs (motorised inflatable boats) take you to uninhabited islands that provide sanctuary for penguins, elephant seals and an amazing array of birdlife. Look for colonies of sea lion and whales.

For those who would like to combine Torres del Paine with a trip by air to the Antarctic Peninsula with Antarctica XXI, this unique fly/cruise Antarctica expedition starts and ends in Punta Arenas, with your first night staying at the Hotel Jose Nogueira.

Puerto Natales & surrounding fjords 

Between Punta Arenas and the Torres del Paine National Park, lies the small town of Puerto Natales on the shores of Last Hope Sound. From here enjoy trips to Balmaceda and Serrano glacier and for those who prefer not to stay in the park, Puerto Natales is the ideal base.
