Puerto Madryn (AR) - Puerto Santa Cruz (AR)

20 December - 27 December 2023

DARWIN200 Global Voyage: Leg 8. Sail along the Argentine coast, past kilometres of pristine beaches and bays. Follow Charles Darwin’s footsteps and journey deep into Patagonia to explore the dramatic frontier landscape of the pampa. Spot wild rhea and guanacos (a species of Lama), as well as caracaras and steamer ducks. The Patagonian coast is seldom visited by most tourists, but home to breath-taking landscapes and wildlife. We will make landfall along the coast as weather and circumstances allow.
There is no more Covid-19 protocol on board, but the participants must make sure that they comply with the rules of the countries visited during the Journeys.
