    This landscape is so majestic... a bit like Norway but in a very different, and more exotic way.

      Agree with our Captain. Looks like Norway, but wrong vegetation and building style.

        The Marine Officer who keeps the lighthouse (with the white cap) welcomes us at the pier.

          To respect the tradition, our captain "sabre le Champagne" (don't know the Englih translation) just outside the cape.

            I've seen but not actually landed at Cape Horn, so am delighted to see these photos, Yves. Especially love the "Landscape around the lighthouse" with the light catching on those grass tufts.

            Wow what a champagne tradition photo! I think the French term Sabrage is used in English, but I've never seen it done.

              I've had 2 opportunities in the past to land on the Cape - both had to be scrapped due to very inclement weather. I guess in the future somewhere there will be landing parties at the North Pole.....

                Great to see photos from Cape Horn, we were unable to land last January as the swell was too great.

                  So many times sailing around and past the Cape, but never have I had the chance and pleasure of stepping ashore.

                  That would be a nice stamp for my passport!
