Beagle Channel

The narrow Beagle Channel, separating Argentina's island chain of Tierra del Fuego to the north from remote Chilean islands to the south, serves as a waterway for the world's southernmost city, Ushuaia. The channel is one of the most important bodies of water on the southern tip of South America, and most travelers experience this part of the world on multi-day cruises from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas in Chile.

Journeying through the water, guests enjoy prime viewing of the snow-capped peaks and dramatic landscapes for which the Tierra del Fuego region is so very well known. Although the channel is often home to storms and uncertain waters, it is also known as glacier alley for its many opportunities to spot these massive ice flows from a boat. A trip through the Beagle Channel is truly is unlike anything else on the planet.

Practical Info

The Beagle Channel runs for 130 miles (240 km (130 miles) from Isla Nueva in the east to the Darwin Sound in the west. At its widest point, the Channel measures three miles (5 km) across. Argentina shares the eastern section with Chile, while the western section is totally within Chile’s borders.
