CAPE HORN | CHILE

Why Visit Cape Horn?

"The last southern reaches of the Americas are a totally uninhabited wilderness. Intrepid travellers are rewarded with spectacular glaciers, icy fjords, and an unspoiled natural beauty."

Synonymous with old sailor’s tales of adventure, the small cluster of uninhabited islands that make up Cape Horn conjures up stories of epic voyages and tragic shipwrecks. With a famously inhospitable climate and dangerous waters visiting Latin America’s last outcrop of land is a true adventure. Navarino Island, just north of Cape Horn, has the small town of Puerto Williams which faces onto the southern shore of the Beagle Channel. There is one remote lodge on Navarino island, otherwise the area is only reachable by expedition cruise.
