Description: Cruceros Australis of Santiago, Chile offers expedition cruises to some of the most beautiful and rarely explored regions of the world. Travel to Tierra del Fuego in Southern Argentina and sail the Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel to see some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery and wildlife. Cruises are offered September through April each year with three night (Ushuaia to Punta Arenas) or four night (Punta Arenas to Ushuaia) itineraries, or combine them into a seven night round trip cruise. Passengers may take optional tours to Tierra del Fuego National Park or a catamaran sail to the Island of the Birds and Sea Lions, or visit Villa Marina Resort with a stop at Garibaldi Pass and Lake Escondido. The return journey from Ushuaia includes a visit to Cape Horn, where passengers may disembark if weather allows. This is the last headland before arriving in Antarctica, and also the place where the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans meet. The trip includes daily excursions in Zodiac boats, directed by the multilingual expedition team, complemented by cultural lectures about the natural surroundings. The cruise is “all-inclusive”: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and an open bar for wine, beer, liquor and other beverages.
