We set off on an unforgettable journey under the sail of a polar yacht to the southernmost city of the planet and the most mysterious Cape Horn!
Mountain rivers here give birth to many waterfalls, wild falcons fly up to the ship, and whales are often seen along the way.
We will make stops in picturesque bays and spend the nights listening the crackle of crumbling centuries-old ice.
And only sky-high mountains and impenetrable forests will surround us!

This one-of-a-kind expedition will take place on the yacht Aurora under the leadership of one of the best yacht captains in the world, Daniil Gavrilov.

Day 3 – 13. March 1 - March 11, 2022. Cape Horn and Chilean Patagonia
Cape Horn - the extreme point of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago - is located on Horn Island in the Southern Ocean on the shores of the Drake Passage separating South America and Antarctica. This place is surrounded with legends. To bypass Cape Horn successfully meant for sailors recognition of expertise and respect of colleagues. There even was a special tradition in the past.
After the first passage past Cape Horn, the sailors had the right to wear a copper earring in their left ear, after the second - a silver one, after the third - a gold one. The thing is that the wind here constantly makes round-the-world way, flying around the planet without encountering any obstacles, and then a narrow strait appears on its way here. As a result, there are constantly storms and fogs, and the sun very rarely appears near Cape Horn. It is not without reason that it is called "Sea Everest".

This legendary place, recognized as a natural heritage of mankind, was transferred under the protection of UNESCO in 2005. There are two ways to get to Cape Horn, western and eastern ones. The decision on which one to choose will be made on the spot, depending on the weather.
It is imposibble to predict in advance what day and where we will be, but one thing we can say for sure - we chose the most beautiful places in this region for our route. Views of almost untouched nature, Alberto de Agostini National Park, snowy mountain peaks, glaciers, quiet bays, waterfalls, rivers full of mussels - all this beauty awaits you over the next 12 days.

Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner
Accommodation: in cabins on the yacht
