Stella Australis cruise

Australis Cruises

Cape Horn & Patagonia Expedition Cruises

The time of year one visits Patagonia determines what wildlife you may see. The area is a thriving hub of marine life, including Humpback, Blue and Southern Right Whales, Orcas and different species of penguins. Ashore, there are elusive pumas, Andean condors, and the guanaco, cousin to the llama.

Australis practices maintaining an ecological balance between human activities and the beauty and proliferation of nature through responsible environmental protection; preventing any type of contamination in its operations, and having a minimum impact in the places they visit. You can review Australis’s commitment to sustainability here.

About Australis Cruises

Australis is a boutique cruise line which operates two smaller ships, the Stella Australis and Ventus Australis, on two itineraries of four days in Chile's southern Patagonia region, including Cape Horn, the Strait of Magellan, Tierra del Fuego and the Beagle Channel. The four-day itineraries have similar eight-day versions as well. The Australis cruise is an ideal component to include with a trip to Chile, to enjoy a stay in one of Patagonia's resort lodges, or combine with visiting Chile's northern Atacama Desert, Santiago, or combining the trip with Argentina. Our travel consultants will be pleased to assist and secure your arrangements aboard an Australis cruise.
