About this trip

WALKING WITH PENGUINS


Departures:  2.30 pm 

Difficulty: Easy Duration: Half day (6 hours)
DOESN'T INCLUDE PICK UP FROM HOTEL. YOU NEED TO DO THE CHECK IN AT PORT.  


Departing from the tourist dock in Ushuaia, we drive in our buses  towards northeast along Nationals route 3 & J, the appealing road to Estancia Harberton. This is the first farm on the island, founded in 1886 by the Anglican missionary Thomas Bridges, and it is located 90 kms from Ushuaia, on the Beagle  Channel.  

We sail from Harberton harbor to Martillo Island, a 15 minutes ride on a semi-rigid  boat (vessel capable of navigation in the area). On the island, we walk for 1 hour along Gentoo and Magellanic penguins, always with a guide, experiencing a unique adventure.  

Martillo Island is part of the Estancia Harberton, and home to Magellanic penguins  between September and April. They share the habitat with other birds, such as  skúas (their main predator), petrels, cormorants, vultures and South American terns. 

Finally, we returned to Ushuaia city by bus.

I did the Martillo Island experience and it was truly one of the best experiences of my life. Our guide was incredible and I learned so much about penguins and the geography of Tierra del Fuego. Everything we saw was beautiful and the penguins were absolutely amazing! Such cool little animals! We stopped for breakfast in the coolest place on the way back and every single person on the tour had so much fun. It was seriously one of the coolest things I’ve ever done, and it was so stress-free!
