Cruising

With so much time on our hands, daydreaming of vacation days to come is inevitable for any avid traveler. When wanderlust strikes, we must follow and Australis can help as the brand joins like-minded cruise lines in shifting gears toward virtual tourism.

 

Australis is a luxury, sustainable-minded cruise company, and one of the few venturing through Patagonia’s fjords and Tierra del Fuego — among several other destinations topping many a traveling family’s list.

 

While you can add this one to your list of experiences you’ll want to jump on as soon as available, in the meantime, embark virtually with these outlets:

 

Social Media

 

Something of a lifeline to the outside world these days, social media is proving a traveler’s best friend. Transport your family from the four walls of your room to the Patagonian landscape with the help of these Instagram stories. Check out the highlights and follow the account as another add-on to your already long list of must-see travel accounts to scroll through (for travel research, of course) and expect some exotic wildlife, Arctic tundra and breathtaking scenery.

YouTube

 

The Australis channel is a must-see for future expeditioners. Watch a selection of videos showcasing the unbeatable experiences onboard Australis, and exceptional views throughout the journey. Watch out for endangered birds and various wildlife scattered throughout the Arctic forests within reach.

 

E-Books

 

While traditional reading is slowly making its way to the top of many a stay-at-home list of activities, Australis boasts five e-books future guests can jump on now and put to good use later. Check out Best Global Destinations for Nature Lovers for an insider’s guide to all things Patagonia and Madagascar, or browse Chile for Wine Lovers for more details on local wine regions.

 

Australis, like so many travel industry brands, seeks to bring the wide world of adventures home, no matter what your style of entertainment. Check out the many tours and expeditions available for next season — get planning, because when the world of travel resumes, you’ll want to be ready!
