"Cape Horn, Chile" Top 5 Page for this destination Antarctica Off The Beaten Path Tip by Sharrie
Antarctica Off The Beaten Path: 41 reviews and 76 photos
On this sunny & clear day, our final day on the way back to Ushuaia, we passed by the "southern tip of the New World" which is Isla Hornos.
Cape Horn was discovered in 17th century by the Dutch.
It was the Dutch East Indian Company which then held the monopoly to the sea route leading from Africa Sea to the Spice Islands.
Cape Horn is now a national park but not many land here as the wind & high waves made the journey a very difficult one.
We didn't since it was not on our itinerary but we got a fantastic view of it.
We were very lucky on this trip! :-)
