We are a luxury expedition cruise company that navigates through the fjords and channels of Tierra del Fuego, located in the Chilean-Argentinean Patagonia. Since 1990 we have transported passengers from different nationalities to explore one of the most beautiful and remote regions in the world, carrying out a special-interest type of tourism, with expert guides and Zodiac expeditions. We are conscious that navigating through such a pristine ecosystem is a privilege, therefore we conduct our operations in a sustainable way, to preserve the unexplored and natural surroundings as we have known them since we started our exploration routes, almost 30 years ago.
Annually, between the months of September through April, our ships Stella and Ventus Australis cover a 4-night route between the cities of Punta Arenas in Chile and Ushuaia, in Argentina, going through landmarks in the Patagonia landscape, such as the Beagle Channel and Cape Horn. Our service on board is all inclusive, with first class gastronomy, open bar and an expedition program led by expert guides, trained in glaciology and Natural History of the Magellan Region and the Chilean Arctic.
Due to our exceptional on board service and well renowned trajectory, we have received important awards such as the Travel+Leisure World’s Best Awards and the Cruiser’s Choice Awards, in the category of Best Small Cruise Ship in South America.
