Beagle Channel, Argentina and Chile
The Beagle Channel is a strait separating islands of the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago along the southern edges of South America.

During his 1831 world voyage, Charles Darwin traveled through this somewhat narrow body of water on his way to the Pacific Ocean. Later named for Darwin’s ship, the Beagle, it’s one of the most beautiful water passageways on the planet.

In modern times, it’s the favorite route of cruise ships traveling south to Ushuaia and Antarctica because unlike the often turbulent South Pacific Ocean, it’s waters are sheltered and calm. In addition, it’s fronted by some of the most impressive glaciers in South America.
