This is a journal of our February 27-March 12, 2024, “Exploring the Chilean Fjords” land/expedition package on the Ponant L’Austral. The package includes one night at a 5-star hotel in Buenos Aires, flights and transfers to/from Ushuaia, and 13 nights aboard the L’Austral.

We had cruised from Valparaiso to Rio de Janeiro around Cape Horn in 2011 aboard the Star Princess (http://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=80603). On that “drive-by” cruise, we enjoyed scenic cruising past the fjords and were able to view many of the glaciers in the Beagle Channel. We also had views of Cape Horn, but were not able to make a landing there. On this expedition, we hoped to explore the fjords in greater detail and perhaps to make a landing on Cape Horn.

EXPEDITION ITINERARY: 15 DAYS/14 NIGHTS
