Cathy and I crossed off ‘Cruise Round the Horn’ from our bucket list. It really is a spectacular journey. This posting is about the second half of our trip from Ushuaia at the southern tip of Argentina west through the Beagle Channel, the Strait of Magellan, and up the coast of Chile. Check out the first half of our trip and some details of our cruise arrangements, at Round the Horn – Buenos Aires to Ushuaia .
Punta Arenas, Chile
Punta Arenas is to Chile what Ushwaia is to Argentina. It is the furthest south town in Chile and also served as a penal colony. Expedition ships head from here to The Antarctic as well.
Puerto Montt, Chile
The cruise north to Puerto Montt is the South America equivalent of an Alaskan cruise with fiords and glaciers.
Valpariso and Santiago Chile
After disembarking in Valpariso, we took an all day drive through the vineyards inland to Santiago airport. Two weeks of living well.
