    Excellent place! Good views, its history, charm! The kindness of the personnel of the Navy guarding this recondite place of our country! You should go early to travel in daylight hours roundtrip! You can request climb to the lighthouse, there is a Museum, the Penguin!

    Despite the road being of rípio was in very good condition for any vehicle. The attractions are the km 0 (zero) of Ruta 40, the lighthouse and the pinguineira.

    Make the excursion to Cabo Vírgenes through Grebe tourism enterprise, since it was without vehicle. While there are 140 km, almost the entire journey is gravel road, the trip is making a little long and at times the landscape a little monotonous, should calculate about 2 hours and half travel approx. The State of the path at the time that I was good, you can go with any vehicle without that is 4 x 4. On the road you can see animals like foxes, guanacos, rheas, also passed by some rooms. Becomes first to the lighthouse Cape virgins, where is the milestone that marks the beginning of Route 40, from the cliff Gets a majestic panoramic view, one gets to see the Strait of Magellan and far Tierra del Fuego. Then the route continues a few kilometers more to the Penguin Colony, which is the second largest in the country after the of Punta Tombo. There you can walk along the self-guided with signs that van explaining aspects of the penguins. It is a visit of full day that is worth making. Take into account that the penguins season is from October until the end of March.
