Want To See Penguins?


If you’ve always dreamed of witnessing penguins in the wild, then our team of South America and Central America travel experts has you covered. While Antarctica is famously the best place to go if you’re looking for the ultimate penguin trip, there’s also no shortage of opportunities to do some penguin watching everywhere from the Galapagos Islands all the way through Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. In fact, there’s very few penguin experiences our team can’t put together for you.
Want to see penguins but you aren’t a fan of the cold? No problem, just let our team know that you’d rather not watch these incredible marine birds from under a parka and they’ll get to work creating a warm weather South America and Central America itinerary timed for the perfect penguin viewing experience for you, your family, and friends.
You can combine a penguin experience with a visit to one of Peru’s most enticing attractions, the mysterious Nazca Lines, or take a big chunk out of your bucket list by getting penguins in on the same trip you make the trek to Machu Picchu. There’s no shortage of penguin-paired experiences we’d be delighted to build for you.
Do you want to get up close with the courageous little creatures? Give us a call today and we’ll tell you all about the Punta Tumbo Reserve on the Valdes Peninsula, located on Argentina’s Atlantic coast, a one-hour flight south from Buenos Aires and home to South America’s largest colony of Magellanic penguins. More than half-a-million penguins make their way to this colony every year to breed, arriving in September and sticking around until mid-March. This makes for an ideal experience to include with a number of our Patagonia trips.
Are you worried about the safety and comfort of the birds? We stringently follow rigorous guidelines to ensure that all Southern Explorations guests experience penguins in a way that’s rewarding for the animals as well as our guests.  
Looking to burn some calories but also reward yourself with a perfect penguin encounter? We offer a pair of Galapagos Multisport itineraries designed to thrill at every turn, from white water-rafting to zip-lining, mountain biking, hiking, and much more. Plus, the penguins of course.
No matter the style or the season, we are ready to provide adventuresome travelers with valuable, personalized trips featuring immersive penguin viewing experiences that expertly match your individual interests and schedule, all while providing peace-of-mind throughout the travel process. All you have to do is give us a call today and we’ll get you on your way to penguins promptly.
