Detailed description

Day 1
Punta Arenas - Check In

Between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. We will check-in at Muelle Prat (EPA), Av. Costanera del Estrecho de Magallanes 1398, Punta Arenas - Chile, and then board at 6:00 p.m.

Once on board, we will make a welcome toast and introduce the Captain and his crew. Subsequently, the ship will set sail for the southern end.

Through the mythical Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel, we'll enter Patagonia and the fjords of Tierra del Fuego.

Day 2
Ainsworth Bay - Tuckers Islets

We will arrive in the vicinity of the Marinelli Glacier in Ainsworth Bay. We will learn how life re-emerges after the retreat of the ice. We will embark on a hike through the wonderful subantarctic Magellanic forest.

We will visit the Tuckers Islets where, from the Zodiacs, we will see Magellanic penguins and cormorants. In September and April this excursion is replaced by a hike near a glacier in Brookes Bay.

Day 3
Pia Glacier - Avenue of the Glaciers

We will sail through the Northwest arm of the Beagle Channel to enter and disembark at the Pious Fjord. We'll take an excursion to the viewpoint from where you can see the glacier of the same name, whose main tongue extends from the top of the mountain range to the sea. After this unforgettable experience, we will continue our navigation under the majestic gaze of the "Avenue of the Glaciers".

Day 4
Cape Horn - Wulaia Bay

We'll arrive at Cape Horn National Park, where we'll disembark if the weather conditions allow it to experience the magic of walking through one of the southernmost points of the world, surrounded by charm and legends.

In the afternoon we will disembark at Wulaia Bay, a historical site that was one of the largest settlements of the native Yámana canoeists. We'll arrive at a viewpoint, walking through the Magellanic forest where lengas, coigües, cinnamon trees and ferns grow, among other species.

Day 5

Arrival in Ushuaia, the most important Argentine city in Tierra del Fuego and the southernmost in the world.
Disembarkation at 08:30 hours.
