Solo Expediciones, Punta Arenas

4.2
#3 of 13 in Tours in Punta Arenas
Nature / Wildlife Tour Wildlife Area
Two islands off the coast of the city, Solo Expediciones feature prime viewing spots for penguins and sea lions. Several boat tour companies offer different options to visit the islands together, or you can choose to see just one or the other. Alternatively, for a lower price tourists can board the regular ferry for a five-hour round-trip, including one hour on the island. On Magdalena Island, scope out the sight of a large Magellanic penguin colony--you can get really close to them on designated paths. On Marta Island, you’ll see a large population of sea lions, as well as cormorants, Antarctic pigeons, and sea elephants. As you travel, you may even be lucky enough to spot a few whales. Bring snacks or a picnic lunch if you wish. Arrange your visit to Solo Expediciones and discover more family-friendly attractions in Punta Arenas using our Punta Arenas trip builder.

Where to stay in Punta Arenas

Punta Arenas boasts a huge selection of hotel options within its bustling sprawl, which range from low-key restored manors and homes to modern lodges and high-rises packed with amenities. You'll find an array of mid-range accommodations in the city's downtown area, within a few blocks of the waterfront and river. This gives you easy access to many of the city's most popular attractions and places to visit. However, Punta Arenas features very few true budget accommodations due to the large tourist industry and huge influx of cruise ship passengers that frequent town.
