Highlights

Visit to Puerto Williams, southernmost community in the world. Sail through waters of the ancient Yamana (Yaghan) culture. Explore the very same fjords, coves, and islets that Fitzroy and Darwin surveyed. Visit and spot of wild flora and fauna such native Southern Beech forests, Magellanic and Rockhopper penguins, Minke whales and Orcas, albatrosses, Peale’s and Black dolphins, and other. Visit and explore Tierra del Fuego’s Darwin Range with its dramatic fjords and superb glacier tongues. …and of course, the ultimate sailor’s test: the rounding of Cape Horn.

The Trip:

The most popular of our expeditions, Cape Horn & Tierra del Fuego’s Darwin Range provide a mixture in which one of the planet’s oldest man-nature challenges such as the rounding of the horn meets an immersion into the deep wilderness that the southern shores of Tierra del Fuego have to offer; all this as part of a crew, in the spirit of sailor’s camaraderie.

The same brutal nature feared by the seafarer’s of the past, is today cherished as home to one of “earth’s last wild places” as stated in 2002 by NGO Conservation International. The government of Chile has created two national parks (PN Cabo de Hornos, PN Alberto de Agostini) in the area, and UNEP designated in 2005 the “Cape Horn World Biosphere Reserve”.

What makes these Expeditions so special?

They are a chance to experience first-hand the adventure and camaraderie of sea navigation.

Why is it a good idea?

Because individual berths are sold on each trip, giving enough flexibility for different group sizes to join in. Also these Expeditions are a good opportunity to fully explore the area the way not even airplanes or big cruise ships can. Full access to coves and islets are what make “our way”, the unique way in which to carefully unveil the secrets of the area.

Notes of Importance:

  • Due to the geographical, meteorological, and cultural context of the area in which we operate, participants must be mindful of the importance of booking flights with enough time before and after the Expedition’s start and end dates (Day 1, and Day 7).
  • We demand from every participant, to book flights, hotels, and other services for the dates before and after the Expedition, and not for the very same days the Expedition starts and/or ends. Please also note that it is highly recommended to purchase flexible air tickets given the possibility of late arrival due to unfavourable weather conditions, or other.
  • The company will not be held responsible for flight failure.
  • Please note that even though access to Global Communication Devices (in this case, Iridium and Inmarsat satellite Phone) is available, this access is limited and restricted to use according to the captain’s criteria. The use of such device, available on board, is primarily for safety reasons. If you need unrestricted, continuous use of such a device, we highly recommend you bring your own.
