Seno Pía and Caleta Olla, Tierra del Fuego, 2/28/2022, National Geographic Endurance

  • Aboard the National Geographic Endurance
  • Patagonia

On our first full day in Patagonia, we cruised west through Glacier Alley on National Geographic Endurance. We arrived at Seno Pía, a spectacular glacially-carved fjord in Patagonia. After breakfast and a safety briefing, the low clouds lifted. We boarded Zodiacs for a trip to get closer to the faces of the two tidewater glaciers. We noticed an abundance of seabirds, fur seals, and floating icebergs along the way. As we cruised out of the fjord, we admired the breathtaking scenery with glacial features and waterfalls. Later, we cruised east along Glacier Alley, noticing the abundant glaciers and glacial features. We made a landing at Caleta Olla and enjoyed walking along the shoreline and going on various exploratory hikes to see Hollandia Glacier and its glacial lake. At recap and Captain’s Welcome Cocktail Hour, we enjoyed sharing our adventures with our fellow guests as we continue cruising deeper into the fjords.
