Why Australis Cruise?
Many passengers think that the best place to listen its favorite music or to read that a special book, is in the bow of some of the Australis Cruise. Every summer and spring seasons (Southern Hemisphere) Via Australis, Mare Australis and Stella Australis navigate from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia and vice versa during 3 or 4 nights, depending on the route you choose.
And probably there is no other place, but Patagonia, where the new adventurers are caught by the landscape, the atmosphere, the silence and the colors that will have the chance of feeling and admiring. Patagonia is that portion of land located at the end of South America, visited during many years ago, by adventurers, sciences, pirates and corsairs. Many of them, used to put a ring as a signal of survival, as soon as they finished crossing the enigmatic Cape Horn.
Because, on board you will feel that the landscape “captures” you; the colors, the solitude, the silence… everything seems to tell us that it is quite possible that this part of the world is still cleaner, native and magic, like thousands of years ago.
The adventure on board Via Australis, Mare Australis or of the new Stella Australis, begins weighing anchor from Punta Arenas or from Ushuaia. If you choose to stars in Punta Arenas, the Cruise will take 5 days to arrive at Ushuaia. If, on the contrary, you prefer to start in Ushuaia, the cruise will take 4 days.
