From the legendary Tierra del Fuego archipelago to pristine glacier-studded fjords and sweeping pampas grassland, experience the extremes and contrasts of Patagonia, the breathtaking tip of South America that crosses the Andes from the Pacific to the Atlantic, on this unique, 12-day land and sea journey through the virtually untouched landscapes of southern Chile. Cruise for four nights aboard the small expedition ship M.V. Stella Australis, designed specifically for the narrow channels of the Chilean fjords with a team of naturalists to provide expert insight. Cruise the historic Beagle Channel and Strait of Magellan and through magnificent Glacier Alley. Stand at the tip of Cape Horn, the "edge of the world." Travel the vast expanse of Patagonia to see sparkling glaciers, unique wildlife and the iconic mountains in Torres del Paine National Park.
