Ventus Australis

Location: Operating between Punta Arenas in Chile and Ushuaia in Argentina.

Rooms: 100 cabins, 210 passengers maximum.

Activities: This fascinating journey through some of the world’s most remote and dramatic terrain takes you to some legendary places synonymous with early Patagonian explorers such as the mythical Strait of Magellan, Cape Horn and the Beagle Channel. Daily land excursions are accompanied by resident naturalist guides who bring this extraordinary world to life.

Our Opinion: For those wishing to discover the remote and wild Patagonian coastline in the footsteps of some of the great explorers of yesteryear, then the Stella Australis and her brand new sister ship the Ventus Australis are the perfect expedition cruise ships.
