5 things to consider...

  1. Vessel - Australis cruises sail aboard 2 different vessels: Stella Australis and Ventus Australis. Each is identical, but Ventus is newer and only came into service in Jan 2018. Both are very comfortable vessels with around 200 person capacity, excellent food and service.
  2. Route - Choice of a one way trip between Ushuaia and Punta Arenas (4 nights), or a round trip of 8 nights. A great way to cross the border and connect Torres del Paine with Tierra del Fuego.
  3. Excursions - Australis offer a great combination of glaciers, wildlife and Cape Horn on most of their trips, with land excursions via zodiac boat and the option to take challenging or relaxed hikes.
  4. Timing - These cruises start operating in late September with the last departure in early April. Weather is good throughout this period, but bear in mind that the penguins will not be visited in September and April.
  5. Cost - prices start from $1,440 USD per person for the cheapest cabin type on a 4 night trip in low season, up to around $7,000 for the biggest and best cabin types on 8 night trips in high season.
