Sailing round Cape Horn: adventure trip to one of the last wild places on earth. Be part of a 7 day expedition on a sailing ship with a professional crew, all of whom have spent many years sailing. The sailing ship ‘Santa María’ sails under Chilean flag and for that reason it is allowed into the legendary Murray Channel. The Murray Channel is famous, not only for its historic places, but also for its incredible flora and fauna.
Cape Horn was declared by the NGO “Conservation International” as one of the last wild and pure places in the world. The Chilean government made two national parks in the area, Parque Nacional Cabo de Hornos and Parque Nacional Alberto de Agostini. In 2005 UNEP declared the Cape Horn World Biosphere Reserve.
You will sail through the waters of the Yamana culture and explore the fjords and bays Fitzroy and Darwin. Enjoy the ñirre forests, Magellanic and Rockhopper penguins and, with some luck, encounter the minke whales, orcas, peale’s and black dolphins, all while sailing magnificent Cape Horn!
