Take a Patagonia cruise and tour through a labyrinth of dramatic coastlines and fjords.
Explore beautiful glaciers, lakes and rivers, backed by the high Andes and replete with wildlife on a Patagonia cruise ship. Breathe the cleanest air on the planet whilst you enjoy the crisp Patagonia breeze.
Cruise past calving glaciers and mountains whose lower slopes are forested in thick Austral woodlands. In the fjords of the Chilean Pacific coastline, the woodland stretches from water level to the glaciers.
This is the iconic landscape of Patagonia. Blue shimmering lakes, a carpet of green vegetation, rocky granite spires and vast glaciers. This pristine wilderness supports plenty of wildlife.
A cruise ship view gives a unique perspective on this vast wilderness. Stand on deck with binoculars and you may spot penguins, elephant seals, sea lions, birds and whales.
The best Patagonia cruise runs between Punta Arenas and Ushuaia. Choose the Stella or Ventus Australis for this 3 or four-day cruise.
Highlights include the Beagle Channel, Magellan Straits and Cape Horn. You sail through beautiful fjords with close up views of calving glaciers. The service is exceptional, and expert local guides give out plenty of information giving cultural and historical depth to your tour.
There are few roads in this part of the world, yet cruise programmes link Argentina and Chile. This makes a Patagonia cruise ship one of the best ways to see and move around Patagonia.
You’ll travel in style and comfort while enjoying your journey.
This is an adventure holiday of a lifetime, taking you to many beautiful places only a Patagonia cruise tour can reach.
The cruise was great – fantastic organisation, very professional staff and all very interesting.
Staff were superb and provided an excellent service.

We are now home again from our fantastic trip. We thoroughly enjoyed it all.
Hotel Las Torres at Torres del Paine - a lovely hotel. Very happy with our accommodation there and restaurants and bar etc. The guides were friendly and professional and we enjoyed it all.
With the Stella Australis, it was an experience to be standing on Cape Horn and some of the scenery was wonderful. I think we had been spoiled by the truly magnificent scenery of Torres del Paine and Mt Fitzroy.
All up, Alan, it was a fantastic holiday and we enjoyed it all. Thank you for your excellent service and advice in making all the arrangements, your brilliant suggestions and attention to all the details.

Staff were superb and provided an excellent service. This may have been helped by Sue and I being the only two people staying at the adventure camp. The staff in the office in El Chalten were very good, too. We were lucky that the accident happened on the way down the Loma del Diablo and about 1 hour from the road and also lucky that our guide Juan was able to carry Sue down.
The cruise was great – fantastic organisation, very professional staff and all very interesting. We landed at Cape Horn but were not able to cruise round it as the weather was too bad.

How do I successfully achieve high altitude acclimatisation? This is the question that anyone travelling to the high altitude Andean areas of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina or Colombia should be asking themselves. Successful acclimatisation will make a huge difference to your visit. It will mean you have a much safer and more enjoyable experience, whether trekking or climbing high Andean peaks. Over the past 25 years I have been up many 5,000 m plus peaks and trekked many fabulous routes in the Andes. I have suffered altitude headaches, lethargy, loss of appetite and certainly lack of breath when trying …
