Day 2 - Cape Horn - Wulaia Bay

We sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where we will disembark (weather permitting). The mythical Cape Horn was discovered in 1616, and it is a sheer, 425-meter (1,394-foot) high rocky promontory. For many years it was an important navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and it is known as the end of the Earth. The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005.

In the afternoon, we go ashore at historic Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the regional largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed here on January 23rd, 1833, during the voyage of the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for the mesmerizing beauty of its vegetation and geography. We will walk through a Magellanic forest of Lengas, Coihues, Canelos, ferns, and other native vegetation to reach a look-out point.

Day 3 - Piloto and Nena Glaciers

In the morning we sail through the desolate Brecknock and Ocasion channels, to reach Cockburn Channel in the afternoon. After lunch, we arrive at Chico Sound and disembark in Zodiac boats to explore Alakaluf Fjord, and to see its beautiful waterfalls and observe the Piloto and Nena glaciers from the sea. We will learn about the formation of glaciers and their influence in the abrupt geography of the regional channels.

Day 4 - Magdalena Island - Punta Arenas

Early in the morning, we go ashore on Magdalena Island (weather permitting). Located in the Strait of Magellan, it was an essential source of supplies for navigators and explorers in the past. The island is inhabited by an immense colony of Magellanic Penguins which can be sighted during our walk to a lighthouse, which guides ships on their way through the strait. In September and April this excursion is replaced by a Zodiac boat ride at Marta Island to observe sea lions. After our visit, we sail to Punta Arenas, disembarking at 11:30 a.m.

We enjoyed the tip immensely - The highlight of the trip was the Stella Australis which was fantastic. I would recommend that to anybody. Really world class.

Hi Vanessa,

Sorry for the long delay in replying. Things got a bit hectic here.

We enjoyed the tip immensely but found the travel delays on certain days very frustrating. If I had to arrange the itinerary again, I would work hard at optimizing flight schedules to eliminate the long waits we had. If unavoidable then one needs to arrange skilful in fills to use up time constructively. e.g. At Puerto Arenas, organize a guide to show you the town and give you an insight into what makes southern Chile tick.

We found some of the hotels OUT of TOWN which meant taxi, taxi, taxi to get anywhere. Possibly suggest a hire car or better still, a driver service for the duration of stay to deal with shopping trips, eating at restaurants, etc. Of course, the hotel in El Calafate was substandard so you need to find a better solution.

The day of self-drive at Puerto Varas was a waste of time and we should have had a guided tour. We wanted to go to Chiloe but were told when we got the car that that was too far. Also, the GPS only spoke Spanish so was pretty useless and nobody had any decent maps so we were severely restricted. If we had had a guide we could have arranged the trip to Chiloe and planned the itinerary to suit.

The highlight of the trip was the Stella Australis which was fantastic. I would recommend that to anybody. Really world class.

Torres del Paine was spectacular and we should have spent an extra day there. The agents at Ushuaia (forgot name) were very poor and I would recommend you look for something better. The excursion we had with them was poor, all in Spanish, and they showed no interest in us so we got a bad deal.

Hope the comments are helpful.

We really enjoyed your company.

Kind Regards,

Johan
