Just the name
Patagonia conjures up images of remote and breathtaking
scenery. Formerly one of the most mythical and far-flung corners
for travelers, Patagonia has earned its name as "The End of the
World." One of the best ways to explore this land of legend is
by cruising aboard the luxurious
Stella Australis. Your
excursion will take you through the Beagle Channel and the
Strait of Magellan to explore one of the most captivating
wilderness regions in the world: Southern Patagonia and Tierra
del Fuego. Your visit to Cape Horn National Park, the last
territory before Antarctica, will leave you in awe as you take
advantage of the many opportunities to disembark the ship for a
mesmerizing forest walk or a Zodiac boat ride to explore the
Alakaluf Fjord. After seeing glaciers, penguins and some of the
most beautiful natural attractions in the world, you will never
forget the wonders of Patagonia.

Chile’s elongated, unique shape
makes it one of the world’s most geographically unique
countries, and this South American nation’s cartography lives up
to its reputation. From top to bottom, thousands of miles
encompass arid, rain-starved desert in the north to the icy
glaciers of the south. The beautiful Andes mountain range is
rarely far from view, defining the country's eastern border.
Such a rich natural setting provides Chile with a wealth of
possibilities for fans of the great outdoors. From excellent
skiing facilities, through to trekking, horse riding and
white-water rafting, adventure sport opportunities in Chile will
push most adrenaline junkies to their limits.
The country's capital Santiago nestles in a central valley
between the Andes and the Chilean Coastal Mountain range. A
cosmopolitan city with its own version of Bond Street - Alonso
de Cordova - it has several museums, Spanish colonial buildings
and parks and taking to it by foot is simply the best way to see
it. Santiago also has a wide range of accommodation and
restaurants nestling on the cobbled street corners.
Chile is a success story among South America's economies with
many international firms choosing Santiago as their headquarters
in recent years. Its copper industry has long been a mainstay of
the country's income, although agriculture and wine bears some
economic significance. Chile has been politically stable since
1990 following the demise of General Augusto Pinochet's 17-year
