Penguins in October

We're planning a trip to Argentina in October and one of the things we want to experience is the beach full of penguins.

We are debating going to either Trelew or Ushuaia for this - does anyone have a suggestion? If we do end up coming to Trelew is there anything else to see there?

There are two of us travelling and we're on a pseudo-honeymoon...but we're both really adventurous.

In October you'll see lots of penguins + the whales !!!

Excellent time of year for Puerto Madryn / Trelew and always a good excuse to go to Gaiman's welsh tea houses.

Punta Tombo about 1 hr south of Trelew has the continental largest colony of Magellan penguins. You would be walking right among them.

The other big attraction in the area is Peninsula Valdes.

Most people spend the night in Puerto Madryn. There are more lodging options than Trelew plus you have the big beach.

Nice! Thanks for the answers guys - this is what I'm looking for :)

From Trelew the plan is to go to El Calafate, then on to Ushuaia...I hope two weeks is enough!
