You have just embarked on a Great Adventure!.

Day 2: Cape Horn - Wulaia Bay

You sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where you will disembark (weather permitting). The mythical Cape Horn was discovered in 1616, and it is a sheer, 425 meter (1,394 foot) high rocky promontory. For many years it was an important navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and it is known as the 'End of the Earth'. In the afternoon, you go ashore at historic Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the region's largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed here on January 23rd, 1833, during the voyage of the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for the mesmerizing beauty of its vegetation and geography.

You will learn about the formation of glaciers and their influence in the abrupt geography of the region's channels.

Day 4: Magdalena Island - Punta Arenas

Buenos Aires
Built in the image of the great European cities, Buenos Aires is Argentina's cultural epicenter, known for its music and dance, its cuisine, fine wines, and vibrant night life. Although it has retained much of its Colonial European influence the design and architecture in Bueno Aires reflects influences not only from Spain, but in many cases Paris, Rome and other Euro capitals as well.

Buenos Aires is divided into neighborhoods or barrios, each with its own personality and unique flavor, and cafes, tango bars, clubs, restaurants, museums, and great shopping will make any visit to Buenos Aires fly by.

So whether you are headed from here to the splendor of Patagonia, the wine region, or the majesty of Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires is a city that will remain in your memory long after the last tango has ended.
Ushuaia - Tierra del Fuego
Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world, and along with the spectacular Tierra del Fuego is one of the most interesting and compelling destinations in Argentina. Ushuaia is a portal, not only for Tierra del Fuego, but also for the nearby Martial Mountains, and Antarctica. And it serves as a picturesque base of operations for hikers, climbers, skiers and eco-tourists drawn by the gorgeous scenery, varying terrain, and abundant wildlife.
Most visitors here ride on the 'Train to The End Of The World', a one of a kind trip to Tierra del Fuego National Park, on a small steam engine powered train with stunning panoramic views.
Accommodations here combine the exquisite landscapes with comfort and service, some with spas and health clubs, while other more rustic properties feature beautiful remote locations that accentuate the harmony of the unspoiled natural environment, and keep in mind that Ushuaia has up to 18 hours of daylight during the summer months, but very little during the winter, so plan accordingly.

Punta Arenas - Straits of Magellan
Located in the far south of Chile along the western edge of the Straits of Magellan, Punta Arenas is an oasis of resources less than 1000 miles from the coast of Antarctica. Punta Arenas serves as a hub for travelers to Tierra del Fuego, spectacular cruises towards Antarctica, and Puerto Natales, the gateway to Torres del Pine National Park, but this town is a destination unto itself with great nightlife, shopping, day trips to the Otway Sound penguin colony, and a colorful and friendly town populated by King crab fishermen, wind-burnt travelers, members of the Chilean air force, in addition to business men, and merchants of every kind.

The town itself overlooks the last land mass in South America and has been an important strategic location for Chile since it was established as a penal colony in 1848. Since then it has been pivotal for international trade, and served as a crossroads for the gold rush and the sheep farming booms around the turn of the 19th century.

Today it's the amazing natural environment, proximity to many of Chile's spectacular destinations, great outlets for hiking and climbing equipment, a huge duty-free shopping zone, a hot nightlife, and a steady influx of travelers that keeps this historic place buzzing.

Accommodations here are sophisticated facilities, with beautiful views of the area and a full range of services. Punta Arenas and the Straits of Megallan can be link with a full range of other Patagonian, Chilean, and Latin American.
Santiago
Santiago is a colorful and sophisticated city that percolates with all manner of activity. Nearly a third of the country's population lives Santiago, and nearly every visitor to Chile spends some time here. This is of course the gateway to the Chilean Andes and its natural wonders, the southernmost regions of South America and the mysteries of Antarctica , but Santiago is a scenic and exhilarating destination in its own right, where international vacationers, business professionals, and the local population create a diverse blend, that has helped to make Santiago a truly cosmopolitan city.

A city of barrios, each with its own flavor, Santiago is blessed with a rich local cuisine, and is situated in Chile's renowned wine growing region, so tours of the vineyards here are a very popular activity amongst visitors. Whether sampling a frosty belinda at a local café, dining at one of the many trendy international restaurants, enjoying Santiago's electrifying nightlife, shopping in its boutiques and markets or taking in the churches, museums, and well preserved colonial architecture along the Alameda, this is a city that will not disappoint.

Santiago boasts an array of 4 and 5 star hotels, as well as more modest boutique, bed and breakfast style properties scattered around some of the older and quieter neighborhoods, and day trips can be arranged to visit some of the country's best vineyards, or tour Santiago's wealth of cultural and historical landmarks.

If you are a skier, and are lucky enough to be here in the winter months (June-September) Valle Nevado's 300 skiable acres are just an hour's drive, or head for Portillo, Chile's premiere ski resort and be the envy of your skier friends back home. The warmest months in Santiago are December - February, but although great winter activities are quite nearby, you can depend on spring like weather even during the coldest months and summer weather (mid 70°- 90°F) for most of the year.

Santiago is a place that can be enjoyed by almost anyone, and our flexible itineraries will help you get the most out of Santiago, Chile, and the rest of Latin America.
