9 Day tour from US$2,592
The outer edge of the world awaits on an adventurous nine-day (eight-night) journey along the same waterways that inspired Charles Darwin. The itinerary retraces much of the route the renowned British naturalist took through the Fuegian Archipelago aboard HMS Beagle in the 1830s, a voyage that inspired him to write The Origin of the Species and formulate the theory of evolution.
Departing from Punta Arenas, we’ll cross the Strait of Magellan to visit the Tuckers Islets penguin colony, wildlife rich Ainsworth Bay before cruising Patagonia down the Beagle Channel to visit Pía Glacier and sail through Glacier Alley. On either side of a half-day port call in Ushuaia, the ship stops at historic Wulaia Bay and fabled Cape Horn before returning to the Strait of Magellan and a shore excursion at Magdalena Island with its rowdy penguin colony.
These beautiful small ships take you through the southernmost fjords of both Chilean and Argentinean Patagonia. Get up close to penguins, sea birds, and sea lions. Discover glaciers on zodiac cruises and walk ashore in the company of expert naturalist guides.
Feel the warm embrace of Patagonian sunsets, and visit Cape Horn, a place that evokes strong emotional and spiritual feelings among visitors.
Each years there are special journeys focused on whale watching or, that follow in the steps Charles Darwin’s voyage through the territory. There are also photographic safaris, and a program that complements the cruise with a land tour through Tierra del Fuego, including a visit to a King Penguin colony.
