Piloto and Nena Glacier

PILOTO AND NENA GLACIER

We can see the glaciers from the zodiac boats. The intense blue color of the Piloto glacier is awe-inspiring due to its age and compression.  We will learn about the formation of the glaciers and their influence on the abrupt geography of the Tierra del Fuego- Patagonia channels. Learn more about the explorers who traveled the same waters aboard our three night Discover Patagonia adventure cruises.

Cape Horn National Park

CAPE HORN NATIONAL PARK

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.

Pia Glacier

PIA GLACIER

We will go on a Patagonia excursion towards a lookout point offering excellent conditions for observing the mountain range, where this impressive glacier originates and its entire displacement can be seen until it reaches the sea. Catch a glimpse of glaciers and ice fields up close on our three night Wild Patagonia glacier cruise.

Tuckers Islets

TUCKERS ISLETS

We shall observe Magellanic penguins (a bird which lives exclusively in the southern hemisphere) and cormorants from the Zodiac boats. View more stunning landscapes and wildlife in the Tierra del Fuego region while cruising Cape Horn on our Gauchos, Glaciers, and Penguins expedition.

Ainsworth Bay

AINSWORTH BAY

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.

Aguila Glacier

AGUILA GLACIER

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.

Wulaia Bay

WULAIA BAY

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. Discover more of Darwin’s route on our Patagonia cruises, departing from Punta Arenas or Ushuaia.
