Explore the southern tip of Patagonia on a 5-day and 4-night journey between Ushuaia, Argentina and Punta Arenas, Chile. On this incredible voyage you will explore some of the planet’s most remote places and achingly beautiful scenery. You will learn about the history, culture wildlife of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago.

Prior to the discovery of Antarctica by Captain Cook Cape Horn as the Southernmost of the great capes was widely regarded as the end of the world. Pre-1914 it would have taken more than a month at sea to reach Cape Horn from London causing it to feature heavily in maritime culture as it is the meeting point of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. In its 400 years as a major nautical route the Cape would claim thousands of lives and hundreds of ships.

Fortunately, the technology, navigation techniques and comfort aboard modern ships have come a long way in the centuries since Charles Darwin, Robert Fitzroy, Francis Drake and Fernand Magellan first came to explore these isolated waters.
