Trip Info

I invite you to spend a day surrounded by the cutest little guys in tuxedo, the Magellanic Penguins. Every year they arrive in mid September when their reproductive cycle starts, the first ones to arrive will be the males followed by the females a few weeks later, but I wont tell you more about it, because you’ll have to discover it by yourself how the story goes! So meet me at Puerto Madryn pier and let’s enjoy a beautiful day with penguins.

To get to Punta Tombo we must drive approx. 250 miles round trip, once at the rockery you’ll have to do an easy walk of about 2 hours.

Your adventure awaits!

Hello!! My Name is Carina and I 've been working as a tourist guide for the past 25 years. As a Guide I learned the importance of quality in a provided service which is why in 2000 I decided to change the way I used to work as a guide with big groups to become a guide that provides private tours in order to give my passenger the kind of quality service they deserve.
