Australis specialise in cruises to Cape Horn and Patagonia. Sailing between Punta Arenas in Chile and Ushuaia in Argentina is the perfect way to explore the end of the world and pass between these two vibrant South American countries. The areas Australis cruise through include some of the most beautiful fjords in the world, completely inaccessible by land. As part of the cruise, you will make landings at various locations with the ship’s expert team of expedition staff. Landings include walking up to amazing glaciers, visiting fascinating penguin colonies and even the chance to stand on Cape Horn - the most southerly point of land in the world!
Australis has two excellent ships, Ventus Australis and Stella Australis. Both carry 200 passengers each and offer 4 and 7-night voyages between April and September each year. Both ships are very comfortable and have a range of cabin types. Facilities include an excellent restaurant serving delicious international and Patagonian cuisine, a fully stocked bar and a lecture lounge where the team hold regular presentations to enrich your knowledge of the areas you are cruising.
Australis offer an unforgettable cruise experience that includes extraordinary contact with nature, amazing cuisine and some of the best hospitality in South America.
Ventus Australis is Latin for "Southern Wind" and reflects the distinctive weather of Tierra del Fuego. A factor that has long determined the region's socio-cultural development and that so impressed the early mariners who endeavoured to explore Patagonia's southernmost waterways.
The Stella Australis, meaning Southern Star, is an awe-inspiring expedition cruise ship. The ship was built in 2010 and has 100 cabins and can hold up to 210 passengers. The Stella Australis offers tourists a relaxed and luxurious voyage, sailing through the breath-taking scenery of Southern Patagonia.
