Isla Magdalena – a colony of penguins

Posted by on November 24, 2012

When we left El Calafate we headed to Puerto Natales because we wanted to hike the National Park Torres del Paine. Unfortunately the weather forecast was very bad for the days to come so we decided to head further south to Punta Arenas. Here you can book a tour to the Island Magdalena which has one of the biggest colonies of Magellanic penguins. There’s not much to be said other than seeing penguins for the first time in nature was really amazing.
