Purpose-built for exploring the fjords of Patagonia in luxury, sister ships Stella Australis and Ventus Australis reach remote areas that few vessels can access


Experience the voyage of a lifetime discovering the spectacular landscapes and pristine wilderness of the southern tip of South America on Stella Australis and Ventus Australis. Designed to expertly navigate Patagonia's narrow waterways, get even closer to the region's glaciers, forests and wildlife through a range of small-group guided shore excursions on the ship's Zodiacs. On board, watch the "End of the World" go by in comfort from the spacious lounge areas and observation decks or take in the ocean views from the privacy of your cabin. Dine with your new friends in the onboard restaurant and bar; your luxury journey includes all meals, with globally inspired cuisine accompanied by an extensive wine menu. Between excursions, Australis' passionate crew run seminars to share their expertise and knowledge of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego's geography, history and wildlife.
