Punta Tombo rookery of Penguins. From middle September to middle April
The tour starts early in the morning, going to the natural reserve of Punta Tombo, at 180 km. from Puerto Madryn.
This rookery is the most important of the Magellanic Penguins. Once there, we can walk through the 3 km. natural path, appreciating this sea bird, in its natural environment at their reproductive time. You can hear the animals claming for the couples, mating, fighting for the nests, breeding the chicks or molting their feathers, depending of the moment of the season.
With their white chests and black backs, they represent a special group of land-sea fauna of Patagonia.
