Each year, the rocky shores of Punta Tombo, Argentina in the wilds of Patagonia welcome a magnificent site. More than a million Magellanic penguins waddle up from the Atlantic Ocean to build their nests and welcome their new penguin chicks.
The National Reserve of Punta Tombo is the largest penguin colony outside of Antarctica. And if you love penguins as we do, this is one of the best places to see penguins in the wild. In fact, there are so many penguins in Punta Tombo that you’ll find yourself strolling along with them on boardwalks or watching from wooden bridges as these elegant creatures waddle their way down what my family dubbed “the penguin superhighway”.
