Stella Australis and M.V. Via Australis are an
expedition cruise ships that sail through the Strait of Magellan
and the Beagle Channel and explore one of the wildest and most
beautiful regions of the world: Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, at
the southernmost tip of the South American continent.
Offering an alternative of 3, 4,
or 7-night cruises, from October to April each year, Stella Australis
and Via Australis set out from Punta Arenas and the Argentinean city of Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego.
The journey begins by sailing along channels,
bays, fjords, passing glaciers, snow-capped mountains, islands,
and unexplored forests of incomparable beauty. You will be
accompanied by penguins, elephant seals, and sea lions. The
imposing Serrano, D'Agostini, Condor, Pia, Garibladi, and other
glaciers will oversee your journey, and their majesty will remain
engraved in your memory forever.
will experience sights such as these until we reach Cape Horn, the
last promontory before crossing to Antarctica and the point where
the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans merge through the Drake Passage.
will enjoy daily excursions to a land where our guides will teach
you about the regional flora and fauna, as well as about the
history of its first inhabitants.
In fact, this will be one of
the most pleasant and unforgettable experiences, because Patagonia
explored via either the Stella Australis or Via Australis
will leave no one unimpressed.
