This is the place to go to see Penguins on Peninsula Valdes! Estancia is a bit further away which keep most of the masses away. They take you to see the penguins buy car so you can not drive near by them on your own. We had 1 guide to our group of 3. So total 4 people, a beach... More

We were completely alone at the beach with all These pinguins. It is amazing to walk among them. Really nice! Worth do to it

This is a wonderful spot in many ways, providing you're not looking for a fully guided tour. The visit is mostly self-guided with clear walkways and signage. There is an area close to the beach that is roped off so you won't be joining the penguins in the surf, but otherwise you'll be up close and personal with the birds.... More

Puerto Madryn has an unique place to live the real experience with 200,000 PENGUINS nesting walking and patroling literally everywhere. Penguins can be found within the extensive lands of ESTANCIA SAN LORENZO, located in PUNTA NORTE, only 160kms from Puerto Madryn City and managed by the same old immigrant's family for more than 100 years with the same professionalism and...

We heard about this penguin place by coincidence from somebody in Puerto Madryn, because it´s not on one of the tourist info maps, and that´s a shame because this place is fantastic. Beautiful nature and loads of penguins, all over the place, and the cool thing is that you can walk in between them. They´re so incredibly funny, wonderful creatures.... More

Visited Estancia San Lorenzo last year while traveling around Peninsula Valdes with my parents. Several of my colleagues at Class Adventure Travel advised me to make a stop at the most northern point of the peninsula. All of them have had very good experiences with the tours at the estancia and only had happy clients coming back from their excursions.... More

My wife and I recently participated in an excursion offered by Princess Cruises to Estancia San Lorenzo. Enroute to the estancia, we were delighted to see numerous small herds of guanico, a pair of rhea, a family of Patagonian hares, a burrowing owl and thousands of Magellenic penquins at Punta Norte. Much to our surprise, the penquin colony exists in... More

A great place to see and walk among penguins. Super meal also. Just a gentle stroll takes you to the beach nag among the penguin burrows.

On an old sheep farm, the penguins have come to nest and raise their young. You can get up close and personal with Magellenic penguins and other South American fauna not usually seen at home.

I can't imagine any place else will get you so close to the Magellanic penguins. The penguins were delightfully curious and stood along the walking path eyeing us up as we passed by. The baby penguins were approaching teenager status by December and were darling gray fuzzballs. We arrived early at the Estancia (about 1130) and initially one employee seemed... More
