Departure from your hotel at 7:45 hrs to take the ferry that crosses in the Tres Puentes sector towards Tierra del Fuego. The ferry departs at 09:00 hrs to arrive at Porvenir at 11:15 a.m. In Porvenir there is time to visit the Museum. In this place it is possible to have lunch or if it is not included in the service, visitors will have the time to buy food on their own. At 1:00 p.m. we go to the Penguins Park, 120 kilometers distant, along the International road to the border of San Sebastián, when you reach the Onaisín Border, you follow the road to Cameron, traveling 14.5 kilometers. All this is done in about 2 hours of travel, bordering the coast and with stops in places of historical and geological interest. We arrived at the Pingüineras at 3:00 pm, to stay in the place 1 hour and a half.
During the low season you can see a population of about 35 specimens, from a distance of 20 to 25 meters approximately. As the spring progresses, they increase in number being able to observe in summer a much larger group reached the 90 penguins approximately.
The park is totally natural, there is only one door to control access and a line made of stones to determine how far you can approach for observation and photographs.
Continuing with the tour, at 4:30 pm we head towards Cerro Sombrero, about 180 kilometers and 3 hours away, passing by several Estancias where we can see all kinds of typical fauna. Finally we arrive at Bahía Chilota to take the ferry and cross back to the Continent on a trip that does not exceed 30 minutes to disembark.
