The Cruceros Australis offers two vessels, the M/V Via Australis or M/V Stella Australis, which will take guests between the Chilean city of Punta Arenas and Ushuaia in Argentina.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

Travel through the fjords, bays and glaciers of Tierra del Fuego, to discover some of the most breathtaking wilderness regions in the world - Southern Patagonia, navigating the legendary Straits of Magellan and the Beagle Channel down to Cape Horn.

Via Australis and her sister ship Stella Australis, are one of the most comfortable ways to explore this region. The smaller Via has 64 cabins and 2 cosy lounges, while Stella has 100 cabins and 3 lounges. However both vessles offer superb views of the local scenery.

On a 3 or 4 night cruise expert guides will take guest on daily land excursions to various islands to discover glaciers, regional flora and fauna, and wildlife such as Magellanic penguins and elephant seals. Every evening there are interesting lectures about the region and guests are informed of the following days' activities.

Exquisite all inclusive regional and international cuisine is served in the dining rooms, as well as an excellent selection of Chilean and Argentinean wines. Not to mention, there is an open bar.

A highlight of this journey between Punta Arenas and Ushuaia is an excellent option to combine the trip with a visit to Torres del Paine and El Calafate.
