Patagonia

Australis Cruise Excursions

Australis Patagonia itineraries offer a number of adventurous and informative shore excursions to discover Patagonia's incredible flora, fauna and geology. All are undertaken in trusty Zodiacs, inflatable boats that allow exploration of narrow fjords and shallow bays where larger vessels cannot venture. Zodiacs are also perfect for Patagonia expeditions on secluded islands, rocky beaches and small piers. In addition to learning about the history and nature of the Fuegian Archipelago, shore excursions afford an opportunity to stretch your legs on guided hikes to secluded waterfalls and the bottom of tidewater glaciers, along pristine beaches and rocky shores, and through primeval sub-polar forest. Whether from the Zodiac boats or on foot, excursions are also an excellent way to observe and photographic the marvelous array of animals that live along the waterways of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego -- elephant and leopard seals, Andean condors and Caracara falcons, thousands of penguins and scores of other bird species.

 

Cape Horn

Excursion
The mythical Cape Horn, an almost vertical 425 meter high cliff, was discovered in 1616. For many years it was an important navigation route for sailboats sailing between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Known as the end of the world, Cape Horn was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June, 2005. Let our Patagonia tour guides, the Explorers of the End of the World, take you on a thrilling adventure to Cape Horn and beyond.
 

Ainsworth Bay

Excursion
Near the Marinelli Glacier, in the Darwin Mountain Range and inside the Alberto de Agostini National Park, we shall go on a walk exploring a beaver dam and the wonderful surrounding sub-polar Magellanic forest. On the beach we will try to see sea elephants, although we are not able to guarantee such sighting, since the exact location of the colony is unpredictable. Learn more about the fascinating cities and attractions you’ll encounter on your cruise to Patagonia, including Ushuaia, Puerto Natales, and Punta Arenas.
 

Pia Glacier

Wulaia Bay

Excursion
A historical site which was one of the largest settlements of the original canoeing inhabitants of the region, the Yamana. Charles Darwin went ashore in this place on January 23rd, 1833 during his voyage onboard the HMS Beagle. This place also offers a visual spectacle of great beauty because of its vegetation and geography. We arrive to a lookout point, walking through the Magellanic forest, where native trees such as lengas, coigües, canelos, and ferns, among other species, grow.

 

Águila Glacier

EXCURSION
We will disembark to do an easy walk on the shore of a lagoon surrounded by mountains until we reach the glacier. We can see the cold rainforest of Patagonia and the movements that shaped the landscape of this amazing place. Our Patagonia cruise tours travel to the southern edge of Tierra del Fuego, highlighting the stunning beauty of Patagonia.
 

Magdalena Island

The ancient sailors and explorers had to stop here to get supplies. This island is home to an immense colony of Magellanic penguins, which we can see on our walk to the lighthouse, which currently guides ships on their way through the strait. *The use of poles for cameras is prohibited on Magdalena Island.
