After pick-up from your hotel you will on board a bus for a road transfer to the ferry embarkation near to Punta Arenas or further along the coast at XXXX. Either way the destination is Porvenir, a small village almost opposite Punta Arenas across the Magellan’s Stretch. Upon arrival to Porvenir at around 11:15hrs you will be able to stretch your legs and walk around, visit the local museum and have lunch (cost of which will not be included in the cost for the excursion). After lunch, at 13:00hrs the bus will depart to where the King Penguin colony is located – about 120km from Porvenir – a trip that will take about 2hrs – however, it will be broken by a few interesting stops.
