Pategonia, Argentina - Freighter cruise around the Magellan Strait


Depart from Brazil - and sail on the most southern route cargo ships take. The Magellan Strait is the most important natural passage between the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans - but it is considered a difficult route to navigate because of the inhospitable climate and the narrowness of the passage  - it is about 4km (2 1/2 miles) wide at its narrowest point.
