Close to dawn, cross the Nassau Bay and enter the remote Cape Horn National Park which was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2005. Discovered in 1616, Cape Horn is a sheer 425m-high rocky promontory overlooking the Drake Passage. Once known as the “End of the Earth”, this shipping channel was the sole navigation route between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans for several years. The Chilean Navy still maintains a permanent lighthouse on the island, a key landmark alongside the charming but tiny Stella Maris Chapel and the Cape Horn Monument.

Sail back across Nassau Bay and drop anchor in Wulaia Bay, renowned for its captivating beauty and striking geography. Step ashore and visit the museum housed in the former radio station. Then select one of three hikes of varying difficulty that lead you through the densely wooded mountain behind the bay. Continue through the enchanted Magellanic forest of lengas, coigües, canelos and ferns and pause occasionally to capture mesmerizing views overlooking the bay.

Disembark to discover the Águila "Eagle" Glacier which hovers above a placid glacial lagoon rimmed by primeval forest.
