When to go

The best ideal opportunity to visit Chilean Patagonia is November to early Walk (mid-year in the southern side of the equator). Despite the fact that you’ll contend with hefty groups during this pinnacle season, the climate is ideal for investigating Torres del Paine Public Park and Tierra del Fuego. September, October, and November (spring) welcome brilliant sprouts, while Walk, April, and May (fall) introduce pre-winter tints. The two seasons experience gentle temperatures and fewer groups. Try not to visit in June and August (winter), when most attractions close and Southern Chilean Patagonia purges out. Anyways, make sure to pack layers and a tough coat to protect yourself from Patagonia’s crisp all-year winds.

During the morning you cruise across Nassau Bay into the remote archipelago that includes Cape Horn National Park. Weather and sea conditions permitting, you shall go ashore on the windswept island that harbors legendary Cape Horn (Cabo de Hornos). Discovered in 1616 by a Dutch maritime expedition — and named after the town of Hoorn in West Friesland — Cape Horn is a sheer 425-meter (1,394-foot) high rocky promontory overlooking the turbulent waters of the Drake Passage. For many years it was the only navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic, and was often referred to as the “End of the Earth.” The park was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2005.

In the afternoon you navigate the narrow Murray Channel between Navarino and Hoste islands and drop anchor at historic Wulaia Bay, one of the few places in the archipelago where human history is just as compelling as the natural environment.  This area is also renowned for its mesmerizing beauty and dramatic geography. After a visit to the Australis-sponsored museum in the old radio station — which is especially strong on the Yámana people and European missionaries in the area — passengers have a choice of three hikes (of increasing degrees of di culty) that ascend the heavily wooden mountain behind the bay. On all of these, you will be strolling through an enchanted Magellan forest of lengas, coigües, canelos, ferns, and other endemic fauna to reach a panoramic viewpoint overlooking the bay.
