Tour Description

Explore Patagonia in style! Recognised as on the most unique hotels in Chile, The Singular is the result of an extraordinary 10 year transformation of a post-Victorian cold-storage plant in the heart of Chilean Patagonia.

Overnight on-board Stella or Ventus Australis

Day 5
Ainsworth Bay & Tuckers Islet

At dawn, we continue navigating through Almirantazgo Sound, arriving at Ainsworth Bay, inside the Alberto De Agostini National Park. From a distance we may see the Marinelli glacier which descends from the Darwin mountain range, and we will learn how life begins after the retreat of the ice. We will also take a walk to discover a beaver dam in the marvelous sub polar Magellanic forest. On the beach, we will try to see elephant seals, but we cannot guarantee this as the precise location of the colony is unpredictable. Later, we sail to the Tuckers Islets, and after lunch we board the Zodiac boats to view magellanic penguins (which only live in the Southern Hemisphere) and cormorants. In September and April this excursion is replaced by Brookes Bay where we land for a short walk to approach a glacier

Day 6
Pia Glacier & Glacier Alley

We navigate along the main part of the Beagle Channel to reach Pia Fjord, where we disembark near Pia Glacier. We take a short hike to a look-out point with a spectacular view of the entire glacier tongue, stretching from high in the mountains all the way to the sea. After this unforgettable experience, we continue sailing along the northwest arm of the Beagle Channel through majestic “Glacier Alley”.
Overnight on-board Stella or Ventus Australis

Day 7
Cape Horn & Wulaia Bay

We sail through the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay to reach Cape Horn National Park, where we will disembark (weather permitting). The mythical Cape Horn was discovered in 1616, and it is a sheer, 425-meter (1,394-foot) high rocky promontory. For many years it was an important navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and it is known as the “End of the Earth”. The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005. In the afternoon, we go ashore at historic Wulaia Bay, once the site of one of the region’s largest Yamana aboriginal settlements. Charles Darwin landed here on January 23rd, 1833, during the voyage of the HMS Beagle. This area is also renowned for the mesmerizsing beauty of its vegetation and geography. We will walk through a Magellanic forest of lengas, coihues, canelos, ferns and other native vegetation to reach a look-out point
