The Australis is a luxury, all-inclusive adventure cruise ship boat that moves through the fjords of Tierra del Fuego, offering a completely unique and off-the-beaten path view of Patagonia.
The Australis brand carries two 210-guest cruise ships built in 2010 and 2018. The ships are beautifully furnished, and offer a gift shop, library, infirmary, full bar, game room, and a luxury dining room offering an exciting array of cuisine each day, paired with Chilean wines. While the boat is comfortable and beautiful, the real highlight is the full immersion into the fjords of Patagonian Tierra del Fuego. The ship offers large windows in every cabin and lounge, and ample deck space on every floor for unparalleled views of the wild Patagonian landscapes. Guests will have no shortage of entertainment with nightly lectures and videos shown by the knowledgable and friendly Expedition Team, in addition to daily off-boat excursions to see the flora and fauna of this pristine place.
