CAP HORN (Cruising)

Cape Horn.jpg

At the southernmost point of the South American continent, the mighty Andes dissolve into a few rocky islands in the sea. The islands of Cape Horn's shingle beaches and steep cliffs support a variety of birds, including kelp geese, steamer ducks and black-bowed albatross. For sailors throughout history, Cape Horn has been and remains awe-inspiring -- it is the confluence of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, where nature's power is often unleashed.

Montevideo is nestled on the north shore of the River de la Plata. The best view of the city is from the top of town hall. The most prominent sites here are the statues of the country's heroes scattered throughout the town. The grandest of them all, a 30-ton equestrian statue, sits in Independence Square, while the others fill the local parks. The top excursions include a city tour and an all-day ranch visit.

Puerto Madryn Argentina.jpg

Situated snugly in a well-protected bay of the Golfo Nuevo, Puerto Madryn is the Chubut Province's natural access point for the plains of Patagonia. This vast area covers one-third of the country but is occupied by less than four percent of the population. The major draw is the proximity to such important wildlife reserves as Punta Tombo and the Peninsula Valdés. Scores of visitors endure long drives to visit these amazing nature reserves for Magellanic penguins, elephant seals, sea lions and whales.

In 1916, stranded on Elephant Island with no hope of rescue, Sir Ernest Shackleton set out on an epic mission to save his crew. All 22 men were saved in what remains one of the bravest rescues in exploration history. Visitors to the island can view chinstrap and macaroni penguins near Cape Lookout.

With a population of less than 2,000 people, Port Stanley has the feel of a small English village; its small size and remoteness make it unlike any other capital city in the world. The self-guided Maritime History Trail tells the tale of vessels that struggled to sail around Cape Horn; many ships were abandoned and still lie in the harbor. The islands boast magnificent unpolluted coastlines. One landmark edifice is the Christ Church Cathedral, built in 1892. Penguin-watching season runs September to April.
