February 19, 2017 - 1 minute read

How much do you know about Cape Horn, one of South America’s most important landmarks? For centuries, the archipelago at the southern tip of South America was believed to lie at the very end of the earth. Only the bravest of seamen would attempt to “round the horn” and its tumultuous weather and waters – and only the luckiest would survive.

Nowadays, it’s possible to safely land on this fabled headland thanks to Australis and its skilled ship captains and expedition leaders. To find out how you can step ashore at Cape Horn, download our new ebook — “Sailing to the End of the Earth: How to Visit Cape Horn.”

The book includes loads of information on the famous cape, like who was first to brave the world’s roughest seas to “round the horn,” what unique marine animals inhabit the waters around the breezy headland, how you can sail to this legendary corner of Patagonia, and what to see on Cape Horn itself.
