Explora Partners Cruceros In Patagonia

Via-AustralisCHILEAN eco-adventure operator explora, whose popular Hotel Salto in the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia has been operating for 20 years, has joined forces with Cruceros Australis to combine cruising through the Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel with explora's land activities.

The nine-day itineraries have been carefully created to showcase the best of both the Chilean and Argentine sides of Patagonia and to help travellers maximise their time in the region in one comprehensive package.

The programs will include four nights at explora's lodge to explore by foot or horseback the peaks, glaciers, lakes and rich flora and fauna of Torres del Paine National Park.

This adventure will be complemented by four nights aboard either the Via Australis or Stella Australis to journey past Cape Horn, Wulaia and Ainsworth Bays and Tucker Islet and Magdalena Island.
