The days on the water is an adventure in luxury on Chilean fjords.

    At dawn, the cruise will navigate its way through Almirantazgo Sound, arriving at Ainsworth Bay, which is situated within Alberto De Agostini National Park.

  • Buenos Aires - Mumbai

    Depart for Mumbai with amazing memories of the tour.

  • Patagonia is a region south of South America, which is divided by the Andes into Argentina and Chile. The Argentinian side is dry with Steppe like grassland, whereas the Chilean side is green as it receives much of the rains from the pacific.

  • We take our trips in the spring and autumn season. The temperatures on the ground will be between 5 - 10 deg c in the night and unto 18 deg c in the day. The Patagonian winds might add to the wind chill though.

  • There are different hikes that you would be invited to take from the cruise once we land. You can choose these depending on your physical fitness. Otherwise, there is not much walking on the tour.

  • On the Patagonian itinerary, we use the Australis Cruise to sail through the southern fjords of Chile. The cabins are very spacious with large windows next to the bed. They all have attached bathrooms.

  • Ushuaia or the end of the world is a nice city but after having done the cruise, it is kind of a let down we believe to spend time in this dusty town. We only use it to catch a flight from.
