Australis Cruise

Itching for that next adventure, but still have little ones in tow? This December, give them the gift of a lifetime—without spending a dime—on tours bound for Chilean Patagonia with cruise outfitter Australis.

Here’s the deal: for every adult ticket purchased towards a December departure, one kid under 17 rides free. Sound too good to be true? Forget about complaints of boredom or eyes glued to handheld PSPs. Days are jam-packed with beach walks, cruises down the island-riddled Beagle Channel, forest treks to beaver dams and glacial waterfalls, Zodiac boat rides to spot sunbathing elephant seals, and a trip to Magdalena Island, where you’ll hike through a colony of Magellanic penguins to reach an iconic 1902 lighthouse.

Happy Holidays, indeed.
