Day 1 Cabo de Hornos - Bahía Wulaia
We will sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay arriving at the Cape Horn National Park, where we will disembark if the weather conditions allow it. The mythical Cape Horn was discovered in 1616 and is an almost vertical promontory 425 meters high. For years it was an important shipping lane for sailing ships between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. It is known as the end of the world and was declared a World Biosphere Reserve in 2005. In the afternoon we will disembark at Wulaia Bay, a historical site that was one of the largest settlements of the native Yámana canoeists. Charles Darwin landed here in 1833 during his voyage aboard HMS Beagle. This place offers a visual spectacle of great beauty due to its vegetation and geography. We will arrive at a viewpoint, walking through the Magellanic forest where lengas, coigües, cinnamon trees and ferns grow, among other species.
Day 3 Glaciar Pía – Glaciar Porter
In the morning we will sail through the Northwest arm of the Beagle Channel to enter and disembark in the Pía Fjord. We will make an excursion to the viewpoint from where you can see the glacier of the same name, whose main tongue extends from the top of the mountain range to the sea. During the afternoon, in our Zodiac boats, we will navigate between high rocky walls until we reach the Porter Glacier, in front of whose wall we will stop to observe its colors, listen to its sounds and if we are lucky, witness a landslide. We will spend a moment talking about this incredible mass of ice, and after the obligatory photographs, we will return on board.
Day 4 Seno Agostini – Glaciar Águila – Glaciar Cóndor
In the morning we will navigate the Cockburn Channel to enter the Agostini Sound, where it will be possible to appreciate the glaciers that descend from the center of the Darwin mountain range, some of them reaching the sea. During the morning, we will disembark in Zodiac boats to take a gentle walk around a lagoon formed by the melting of the Águila glacier, up to which we will come face to face. In the afternoon we will sail in Zodiac boats to get closer to the Condor Glacier. We will learn about the formation of glaciers and their influence on the abrupt geography of the Fuegian channels.
Day 5 Magdalena Island – Punta Arenas
First thing in the morning, if the weather conditions allow it, we will disembark on Magdalena Island, an obligatory stop for the supply of ancient navigators and discoverers. During our walk to the lighthouse we will be able to appreciate a huge colony of Magellanic penguins.
