Patagonia: Stella Australis

Stella Australis

Rather than crossing by road between Chile and Argentina through one of the passes in the Andes, travel from one country to the other by sea. This first class expedition cruise Stella Australis will take you to places inaccessible by land: remote, virgin forests, immense glaciers and colonies of marine wildlife. This is a fabulous way to explore deep Patagonia in full comfort and well away from the everyday distractions of phone signals and the internet.

The Stella Australis offers a high standard of comfort and service, with a feeling of spaciousness and elegance throughout ensuring a really enjoyable and relaxing experience with open bar included on all cruises. Its 100 roomy cabins are stylishly decorated, each with a picture window framing the ever-changing view.

There’s a choice of lounges, deck areas, a dining room offering a sophisticated range of dishes, even a gym. Lectures on a range of subjects offer illuminating background information on the geography, wildlife and history of the region, and there are regular on-shore excursions which allow you to get closer to the spectacular scenery.

Stella Australis’s 4- and 5-day cruises depart twice a week, passing through rugged, densely forested hills, snow-draped mountains, isolated bays peppered with craggy icebergs and the towering ice walls of remote glaciers. Conditions permitting, all cruises aim to land on Cape Horn, at the very tip of the Americas.
