Isla Magdalena is a National Park located on the Straits of Magellan, 35 km (2.7 mi.) north of the city of Punta Arenas. In order to reach the island, one needs to sail for 2 ½ hours along a route that was also followed by other famous seafarers, such as Francis Drake, Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, Hernando de Magallanes and Charles Darwin himself. Once on the island, a hike leads to the large colonies of Chilean penguins, with an estimated population of 60,000 breeding pairs of Magellanic Penguins. It’s also posle to reach the lighthouse, from where a lovely view of the island and surrounds can be admired. The visit to the island lasts for an hour or so. At tnne end of tour we return to the city of Punta Arenas.
