Tour numerous bays and fjords, wonderful landscapes almost not intervened by man.

An essential part of the journey through Magallanes Region is to take a trip by boat, ferry or cruise contemplating the magnificent natural scenery. In matters of navigation, in addition to the Strait of Magellan, we highlight the navigation to Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers, exploring the Almirantazgo Sound in Tierra del Fuego, navigating through the fjords and channels from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia in Argentina and the northern part of the Ultima Esperanza Province are just some of the options.

When taking a cruise to the fjords and channels of Tierra del Fuego, from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia in Argentina, you can visit the legendary Cabo de Hornos (Cape Horn) that represents the end of the American continent. At this point the Pacific and Atlantic oceans meet and the force between the two largest oceans of the planet is appreciated.

It is an abundant area in Nothofagus forests and glacier tongues from the ice fields of the Darwin Mountain Range, which is part of the Alberto de Agostini National Park (1,460,000 hectares).
