You may round Cape Horn by a 7 day sail boat excursion at $195/day/person.

As an added attraction for our Patagonian tours, you may make a free
1 1/2 hour rounding every Sunday by Twin Otter aircraft from Puerto
Williams as part of our special tour promotion to the
Glaciers and Fjords of Tierra Del Fuego via the Beagle Channel aboard the "Victory".

The same Twin Otter will then take you back to Punta Arenas
arriving there in the late afternoon.
