Take a voyage to the pristine fjords, towering glaciers, verdant forests and historic bays of Tierra del Fuego.

The Ventus Australis is a brand new and state-of-the-art vessel, purpose built to cruise the fjords and channels of Tierra del Fuego in luxury and comfort. Up to 210 passengers sleep in a wide range of cabins, all with panoramic windows from which to observe and admire the changing Southern Patagonian scenery. 

The cruise are organized and managed by the Australis Expedition Group and consist of walks through trails in the native Chilean forest and visits to magnificent sculpted glaciers, with talks on the wildlife and plantlife of the area. A delicious whisky with the millenary ice, or a cup of hot chocolate will be served at the end of the excursions.

The four night cruises travel between Ushuaia in Argentine Tierra del Fuego and Punta Arenas on the Chilean side, allowing you to combine an Australis Tierra del Fuego cruise with some hiking in Torres del Paine, the pristine lakes and forests of the Lake District and the cosmopolitan cities of Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile.
