Parque Pinguino Rey, Tierra del Fuego
(2.5/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • Yesterday we did a tour by throughout the day, starting with two hours by ferry to Porvenir, Tierra del Fuego, through the Museum, waterfront, square Selknam, then Park King Penguin, then to Cerro Sombrero, then we crossed by ferry the narrowest part of the Strait of Magellan, noteworthy is the experience with the company of tourism Selknam and the entertaining of Alex his driver and Diana tourist guide. I also emphasize timeliness.

  • Beautiful and impressive excursion, basic if you spend a few days in the area. You can see the penguins just 100 m away. Price: 12,000 CLP (16 Eur). Important to bring warm clothes (are penguins) and preferably some binoculars or a camera with a decent zoom. It is approx. 5 h travel from punta arenas (including ferry). Very nice
