3 nights on the Stella Australis with full board in a cabin B, Chile
Rise and shine onboard the Stell Australis and start the day replenished with a delicious breakfast.
Today’s highlights include crossing the Murray Canal and reaching the southernmost tip of the South American continent, the Cape Horn National Park on the Chilean Isla Hornos.
It’s usually stormy and freezy cold because it’s location is in the stormiest corner of the world. It’s where the Pacific and Atlantic meet in front of Cape Horn’s 425-meter-high rocky spire. Wrapped up warmly in thick clothes, you will disembark the ship and discover the so-called “end of the world!”
Only part one of your adventures is complete! Head back on board where you can warm back up and eat a snack before disembarking again. Part two of today’s experience is a visit to the tranquil Wulaia Bay. Hike through the Magellanic Forest’s diverse fauna until you reach a jaw-dropping lookout point. Relish the snow-capped peaks, fascinating mountain ranges, and a fantastic view of the ocean: a paradise for nature lovers and explorers!
Today’s adventure will lead you along the northeastern arm of the Beagle Channel to Pia Bay. Disembark the Stella Australis and hike to a lookout point that offers unforgettable views of the Pia Glacier. From here, you can see how fascinating the glacier’s tongue pushes down from the mountain range and to the sea.
After an exciting more in the bay, you will head back to the cruise ship for a quick break. In the afternoon, hop into a rubber dinghy (also known as a Zodiac) and head to the Garibaldi Fjord on Tierra del Fuego’s south coast. Now you can choose between two experiences. The first option is an excursion through the Patagonian rainforest, where you and a guide will hike to a waterfall created by glacial origins. Alternatively, you can stay on board and take a panoramic cruise along the scenic Garibaldi Glacier.
The crisp morning air greets you aboard the Stella Australis. While you sail through the Cockburn Canal to get to the Agostini Fjord, enjoy the wonderful views of the endless glacier world.
Once you arrive close enough to the land, the Zodiac will take you to the mainland to walk around the lagoon. Surrounded by magnificent mountains, your jaw will drop as you reach the front of the glacier. In the afternoon, you will finally reach the Condor Glacier and learn about the glacier movements from your guide. Do you hear the ice crunching amongst this impressive landscape?
Before you know it, the last day of your trip is already here. In the early morning, you will continue your journey to Isla Magdalena and enjoy a stroll through the native Magellanic penguin colony. An incredible 120,000 penguins call this home. Observe the friendly animals in different brood stages and go up to the small lighthouse that once showed the way for explorers through the Strait of Magellan.
Since the penguins already migrated in April, you can alternatively head for Isla Marta. The rubber dinghy will take you to the front of the island, where you can watch a colony of South American sea lions.
Afterward, return to your cruise ship and continue north to Punta Arenas, where you will disembark. Are you happy with all of the stunning photos and unforgettable memories you’ve collected these past days?
