We took a tour here, and it's really interesting to see these birds in their natural habitat (especially the endangered Humbolt penguins). The guide was overrated, and the towns visited along the way are nice, but unnecessary if you've already visited much of Chile elsewhere.

Surprise - the road was paved all the way and it was a beautiful drive. There were very few penguins in late October but, we did see some and the guide on... More

starting with the trip, the view is great all over, and getting there the penguin and seals islands are really worth every penny
