We will pick you up to begin the way to the starting point of the navigation across the Magellan Strait, so you can reach Tierra del Fuego island. In that place, you will go to the King Penguin Natural Reserve, in Bahía Inútil. There, you will be received by a local guide, who will give instructions for the visit, as well as important information about this penguin species, the second largest in the world. The observation is made from specific points, from a 50-meter (164 feet) distance and in total silence, so you don’t disturb these animals. After about 1 hour of observation and tour by the marked track, you will go back to the vehicle to continue the trip by Tierra del Fuego.

 

Depending on how the day’s itinerary is organized, you will have the possibility of visiting the city of Porvenir, make a small tour and have lunch. The same way, it might be a stop in Estancia San Gregorio, built since 1878 and that still have some facilities standing, although abandoned.

 

*The crossing to Tierra del Fuego island might be through Tres Puentes or Punta Delgada. Depending on this, it is possible that you don’t visit Porvenir and the tour lasts 3 more hours. Independent the route, the price of the tour remains the same. In case there’s time to visit Porvenir, there will be the option to visit the Fernando Cordero Rusque Museum (CLP$ 3.000 per person, not included in the tour’s price).


*The ending time of this activity might be modified, reason why our recommendation is not to buy tickets for leaving Punta Arenas until three hours after the returning time or travel the next day after the end of the tour.


*The pickup time will be reconfirmed the night before the tour through phone call or WhatsApp, and it might be between 6:00 am and 8:00 am.
