Parque Pinguino Rey, Tierra del Fuego

(2.7/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
You might want your tuxedo to fit in at Parque Pinguino Rey, home to a population of majestic King Penguins. This second-biggest penguin species travels from the subAntarctic conditions in search of food, and archeological finds have shown that the penguins have been frequenting the island for hundreds of years, dating back to the time of the Selknam indigenous people. Visitors are able to view the penguins from a roped-off observation deck, where you'll find signage about the development of the penguins which will help you appreciate the age of the penguins you will see. Many tour groups in the bigger, nearby cities coordinate day trips that connect tourists with this site. Plan your visit to Parque Pinguino Rey and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tierra del Fuego trip itinerary maker.

  • We are happy to have made the detour to observe these thousands of penguins. We had the opportunity to cross the entrance to the park for free while having wanted to fulfil, person at the gate. Privileged we were because only during walk on the pedestrian pontoon built leading to the heart of the colony. It is a spectacle of exciting and unforgettable nature that we are happy to recommend.

  • Pingüino Rey Park is well away from Porvenir, the journey was made in a van with a tour guide, the landscape is pretty dull since all natural forest was cut down for pasture for sheep. The region is quite flat which makes the trip even more unattractive. The Park is crossed by a river that has a strip of land where the Penguins are restless. At this location the landscape is interesting not only by the presence of penguins as well as the landscape of the strip of land between the sea and the river.
