Parque Pinguino Rey, Tierra del Fuego
(2.4/5 based on 110+ 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 were visiting the future and decided to go to the Park. The only transport that arrives from the future to the Park is a van that also works in mail to Cameron. The unique outputs of this van is at 6 in the morning and at 4 in the afternoon, so take it at 6 and start. As the Park opens at 10, we still long to Cameron and on the way back we got in the Park (at 9). The park itself is small and the facilities are only the container used for the payment of delivery and other bathroom. They could install any sale of coffee, since the weather warrants. Despite the precariousness (of course because it is a small project), the place is beautiful and you can watch the penguins a considerable distance to not to interfere. Unfortunately there was much more to do, so the visit did not last more than 30 minutes and we had to return on foot (the van spent about 6 o'clock, and it was foolish to expect it sitting on the road), so walk several kilometres waiting for someone to take us to finger. This led us to go through the (abandoned) colonial town of Onaisin, where you can see the buildings of the time, that there are information signs (as we were going on their own and walk could not enter, if it is that you can). In short... If you go in winter, go by car and take coffee and grocery. As we walked many kilometers (about 18 approx) enjoyed the landscape, wind, guanacos and the sheep.

  • The 12.000 you pay to get in might be worth the money. But the 48.000 you spend on the day tour to get there is absolutely wasting your money. No value what so ever. Wouldn't recommend it to anybody 
  • Great work carried out taking care of these beautiful animals, deserves to be visited despite the value of the entry since it contributes to continue their work. Beautiful landscapes and beautiful view with the penguins without ruining their habitat.
