2.5/5 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.

  • 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.

  • The outrageous price, 12000 pesos, not worth the show: penguins at 40 meters from you. You can see from a barricade (doesn't make sense) that divides the area of visit by animals

  • The Park is a distant place located in Bahía Inútil. To access it is necessary to take a ferry that goes from Punta Arenas to the island and after walking many miles on vehicle. The journey, despite the exhausting of the journey, is worth since it is not something that is alive every day. See the penguins in natural habitat and appreciate the immensity of the pampas is wonderful. The entry seemed a little excessive, but by what is used for the maintenance and research of these flightless birds. Therefore, if you have the money it is advisable to go. We hire the service of travel agency Selkman who received us and very well attended throughout the trip.
