Hotel pickup early in the morning to go towards the terminal in Tres Puentes and take the ferry to Tierra del Fuego Island, sailing by the Magellan Strait for 2 hours and 15 minutes until we arrive at Chilota Bay. From this last point, we will be heading to Porvenir, where we will have time for lunch and visit the Fernando Cordero Ruesque Museum, in case it is open the day you take the tour. If don’t, you can make a city tour by Porvenir.

We will follow our way by land, boarding the Inútil Bay for 110 km until reaching the Pingüino Rey Park. There, we will stay for 1 hour to see these birds from a 50 meters (164 ft.) distance. Then, we will go to Primera Angostura to board the ferry again and make a 20 minutes navigation by the Magellan Strait, and begin our return to Punta Arenas, passing by the Estancia San Gregorio, which facilities are from 1878 and today are abandoned. When we arrive in Punta Arenas, we will leave you in your accommodation.

*Fernando Cordero Rusque Museum open from October 15th, 2021.

*The crossing to Tierra del Fuego could be done through Primera Angostura instead of Tres Puentes, without previous notice, due to weather conditions or reasons of force majeure. In these cases, there is no refund because of the change, we will not pass by Porvenir and the duration of the tour could be extended about 3 hours.

*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 tour is made from September to May.

  • How far can I see the penguins during the visit to the Pingüino Rey Park?

The Primera Angostura crossing is made in the Patagonia or Fueguino ferry, vessels with 250 or 184 people, respectively.

  • How can I pay the entrance fee to the park?

You can pay the entrance fee the same day of the tour when entering to the park, whether it be in cash, or credit or debit card.

  • How much does it cost lunch in Cerro Sombrero?

There are options according to the visiting day that go from $ 5,000 to $ 10,000 per person (in cash). You can take your own snack from Punta Arenas if you want but consider that it is a long tour and there are no more places where to buy food.
