The first tour of its kind, our Gauchos, Glaciers & Penguins Patagonia expedition provides a round-trip experience from Punta Arenas, visiting by land and sea the stunning landscapes and wildlife of Tierra del Fuego. While on a Cape Horn cruise, we visit a small King Penguin colony, before overnighting at Tierra del Fuego and next day visit an estancia for a true gaucho experience. We’ll then make our way into the lovely port of Ushuaia where we will embark on the Stella Australis. During this Patagonia adventure, we visit areas only accessible using our small expedition ship. our excursions via zodiac take you sailing on Cape Horn, where you have the opportunity to disembark (weather and seas permitting), Wulaia Bay, a colony of Magellanic Penguins, stunning glaciers and other areas visited by the great explorers. The voyage will end in charming Punta Arenas.
