Day 2 Buenos Aires, Argentina - Tour Begins
Your journey starts in Buenos Aires. The city radiates a Latin-infused rhythm interwoven with its European heritage. Meet your fellow travelers for a cocktail reception at your hotel, located in the heart of the chic and stylish Recoleta neighborhood. Head to a local restaurant with your new friends and indulge in savory Argentine flavors. (D)

Day 3 Buenos Aires
Embark on a panoramic city tour and coast down the famous Avenida 9 de Julio, where Parisian architecture and verdant trees line the world’s widest avenue. Discover the city’s most well-known sites and stop at the famous Recoleta Cemetery, the final resting place of Eva Peron. Enjoy free time to explore San Telmo, where street performers tango on the sidewalks and vibrant street murals dance along the walls. Return to Recoleta for an evening at leisure. (B)

Day 4 Buenos Aires - Ushuaia
Fly to Ushuaia, your gateway to Patagonia’s natural splendor. A remote harbor town nestled between the Andes and the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia proudly calls itself “the southernmost city in the world.” Get acquainted with the city on a brief walking tour before enjoying free time to explore on your own. (B)

Day 5 Ushuaia - Tierra del Fuego National Park - Board Ship - Chilean Waters
Begin your Patagonian adventure at Tierra del Fuego National Park. With the wind in your hair and fresh air in your lungs, breathe in the peace and serenity around you, intensified by the dramatic landscape of waterfalls, glaciers, and forests. Set sail from the mainland on the Stella Australis, your home for the next four nights. Head for one of the most remote corners of the world as you cross into Chilean waters. (B,D)

Day 6 Cape Horn - Wulaia Bay
Disembark* at Cape Horn National Park, home to an archipelago of islands considered to be the “End of the Earth.” Anchor at fabled Wulaia Bay and visit the historic radio station, formerly used by the Chilean Navy. Choose how you explore the area with an expert guide, selecting between three different hikes of varying difficulty.** Each choice will offer sprawling vistas of the gentle bay. (B,L,D)

Day 7 Pia Glacier - Garibaldi Glacier
Take a Zodiac to shore and stand in awe before the Pia Glacier, a colossal mass of ice slowly crawling down the mountains, followed by a choice between two hikes.** Cruise further down the channel and drop anchor near Garibaldi Glacier – one of three Patagonian glaciers that continues to grow rather than shrink. Set off on a challenging hike through the forest to a glacial waterfall with views of the fjord below. If you’re not up for the hike, opt to stay onboard the ship and admire the stunning glacier from the upper decks. (B,L,D)

Day 8 Agostini Sound - Aguila Glacier - Condor Glacier
Make your way to shore on a Zodiac for a day by the Aguila Glacier. Start by strolling around a lagoon formed by a melting glacier. As you stand in front of the glacier, feel humbled by its pure immensity and stark white façade, emblematic of the region’s untouched nature. Continue by boat to the Condor Glacier – where calving hunks of ice send spine-tingling echoes into the air. (B,L,D)

Day 9 Magdalena Island- Disembark Boat- Punta Arenas, Chile- Puerto Natales
Start your morning on Magdalena Island with a hike through a massive colony of Magellanic penguins*** to the island’s historic lighthouse. Embark on your final sail through Patagonia as you head further into the strait, docking at Punta Arenas. Discover this coastal metropolis with an expert guide, where brightly colored houses meet modern skyscrapers. As the day draws to a close, continue on to Puerto Natales. (B)

Day 10 Puerto Natales - Torres del Paine - Puerto Natales
Venture into Torres Del Paine National Park, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Among the jagged mountains, ethereal teal waters, and expansive grasslands, you may spot soaring condors, inquisitive guanacos (llamas), and independent felines. Marvel at the cascading waterfalls as you make your way through what is known as South America’s most incredible national park. (B,D)

Day 11 Puerto Natales - El Calafate, Argentina
Return to Argentina at El Calafate. En route, stop to spend time with some local gauchos at a typical Patagonian estancia. Enjoy a traditional lamb roast lunch as you chat and learn about the culture. Make your way through the edge of the Patagonian countryside before settling into your hotel, featuring unparalleled views of Lake Argentino. (B,L,D)

Day 12 Los Glaciares National Park - Perito Moreno Glacier - El Calafate
In Los Glaciares National Park, allow the wonder of Perito Moreno Glacier to take hold of your senses. This gigantic tower of vibrant ice rests against blue-green waters – an awe-inspiring blanket to the natural world. Gaze off the shoreline in search of floating icebergs, listening to the resounding crack of ice sheets breaking free. (B)

Day 13 El Calafate - Buenos Aires
Fly to Buenos Aires and make the most of some time at leisure. Gather for a farewell dinner at La Ventana Tango House, where you’ll savor Argentine cuisine before viewing an authentic tango performance. (B,D)
