The Estancia San Lorenzo is a 2 hour drive from Pueorto Madryn...but so worth the drive. In the Punta Norte area, Estanica San Lorenzo is home to a fantastic colony of Magellanic Penguins. You walk among the Penguin families and see them feeding their young and fishing. It will be a fantastic memory you will never forget!

I went here for lunch as part of a shore excursion organised by Princess Cruises. I was very happy with the experience. After visiting the penguins we were taken to this place for a very well cooked buffet lunch with drinks supplied as well. The hospitality was great and staff very friendly

Estancia San Lorenzo is one of the most amazing places to visit. You can have lunch at the restaurant and then visit the penguins colony. Try the "cordero patagónico". Delicious! There are hundreds of penguins with their puppies, in their natural habitat and living in peace while the season doesnt ends.They walk without being phased by our presence. The penguins... More

I love penguins. I think everyone loves penguins because what's there not to love!? If you truly want to see penguins up close then you have to pay this Estancia a visit. You'll be walking amongst the little feathered creatures and they'll be all around you with their cuteness. These adorable birds aren't even phased by your human presence! Just... More

I absolutely loved this place. For anyone with even the slightest interest in the natural world this is one of the most incredible habitats on the planet. You will see all sorts here from Penguins, orcas, armadillos and all kinds of other amazing creatures. I went there some years ago but wasn't allowed to enter that date, however, I simply... More

Estancia San Lorenzo was one of our favorite penguin sites (second to Volunteer Point in the Falklands). Magellanic penguins were everywhere - we were able to wander about freely as long as we didn't impede the penguins and stayed within the rock borders. We were amazed at how close we could get to these magnificent birds. They are fearless of... More

Estancia San Lorenzo, about 160 km from Puerto Madryn shelters a colony of Magellanic penguins. The cliffs and beach with the penguins are a short drive from the main house. There you will be among thousands of penguins with the opportunity to walk to the beach where penguins enter and come out of the water. The restaurant at the Estancia... More

We visited Valdes peninsula in the end of 2014. Penguins are absolutely awesome creatures and it's extremely interesting to watch them. And after we spent some time with them we went for lunch in San Lorenzo estancia. And this was our best meal in Argentina. I had never ever tried such lamb barbecue. I even could not imagine that meet... More

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
