Expedition Cruise from Patagonia Chile to Argentina


Explore the stunning landscapes and wildlife of southern Chile and Argentina with a cruise that takes you from Punta Arenas, Chile to Ushuaia, Argentina (or vice versa). This four or five day expedition cruise wends through fjords, glaciers and through the Beagle Channel for an unforgettable journey.

The five day cruise begins in Punta Arenas, Chile, where you’ll board your expedition vessel, specially outfitted for Arctic cruising, and sail through the Strait of Magellan. Continue the cruise with stops at places like Tucker Islet to see colonies of Magellanic penguins and cormorants, Cape Horn National Park, and more. You’ll sail through Glacier Alley, through six imposing glaciers, and disembark on the Pia Glacier for panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and forests.

The four day itinerary still visits glacier, penguin and forest highlights, and is great for those shorter on time. The four day itinerary departs from Ushuaia, Argentina; the five day itinerary departs from Punta Arenas, Chile.

Ask about availability, and combining this trip with land adventures throughout Chile and Argentina.
