Description of Patagonia cruising holiday, Ushuaia to Punta Arenas

What better way to explore the beautiful fjords and mighty glaciers of Chile and Argentina than by boat? This Patagonia cruising holiday takes you from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas, past captivating scenery and varied marine wildlife. You’ll board your cruise ship in Ushuaia and head first through the Murray Channel to Cape Horn National Park, declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005. Then you’ll move on to Wulaia Bay, which was once home to one of the largest Yamana aboriginal settlements in the region.

The next day, the boat makes its way to Chico Sound, where you’ll explore Alakaluf Fjord and gain dramatic views of the Piloto and Nena glaciers; as well as get a geography lesson about the formation of the glaciers! Moving on, the following day is spent in the company of sea birds. You’ll go ashore on Magdalena Island, which houses a vast colony of Magellanic penguins, as well as a lighthouse used to guide ships on their way through the strait.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

As a local Argentina Travel Company, we hold a deep appreciation for the Earth's natural wonders and understand the importance of their preservation. However, we believe that sustainability alone is insufficient. Travel, in our view, is a potent instrument for creating a positive impact on the destinations we explore.

Let's take courageous strides toward a brighter future where we not only safeguard our planet but also leave it in a better state than we found it. This forms the bedrock of sustainable tourism.

Our Strategy: PLANT
Our approach is straightforward: PLANT. Set new objectives. Plant more. Repeat.
In collaboration with ReforestArg, we plant ten trees for every traveler to contribute to the cherished landscapes we adore.
Twice a year, we journey to Cholila, Chubut – Argentine Patagonia – to plant these trees, playing our part in preserving native forests, bolstering the local community, and giving back to Mother Earth.
Currently, we have achieved our goal of planting 20,000 native trees in Patagonia. However, our journey towards regenerative tourism is just beginning. With great pride, we redefine our objectives and introduce "Say Bosque": a forest of native trees planted in Patagonia.
Our commitment is to plant 100,000 native trees before the next Pachamama Day (August 1, 2024).

Zero-Plastic Policy
Our journeys are free of single-use plastics.
We hold our suppliers to exacting standards, requiring them to replace single-use plastics, such as bottles, containers, and disposable cutlery, with sturdy, eco-friendly alternatives.
This is a commitment we reaffirm year after year as we strive to minimize our ecological footprint and contribute to a healthier planet.
Through this initiative, we prevent more than 9,200 plastic bottles from entering the environment annually.

People

Global Commitment
We endorse international agreements to combat climate change.
Among the global commitments to sustainable tourism that we've endorsed are:

We're delighted to announce our participation as a signatory of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism.
We've embraced the Guiding Principles of the Future of Tourism.
We've also pledged our support to the Tourism Declares Climate Emergency initiative.


Community-Centric
We believe in the transformative power of travel in fostering the sustainable development of local communities.
We prioritize partnering with small, family-run businesses, advocating for independent local accommodations over large hotel chains.
By opting to travel with Say Hueque, you can rest assured that at least 80% of your expenses directly benefit the community.

Tips for Responsible Travel

Minimize your waste.
Opt for sustainable transportation.
Support local businesses by shopping locally.
Choose accommodations and tour operators committed to responsible practices.
