Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Tierra del Fuego / Ushuaia / Isla Martillo
Catch a boat to Isla Martillo, a small island home to thousands of penguins where you can get close and observe them in their natural habitat. A guide takes you through authorised trails where you can get as close as 3 m (10 ft) to Gentoo and Magellanic penguins. Look out for other animals such as the penguin's main predator, the skua bird. Importantly, know that only one tour company allows you to land on the island to see the penguins, other tour companies can only offer you views from the boat. To visit Isla Martillo and get the most from your holiday in Ushuaia, create itinerary details personal to you using our Ushuaia online tour planner.
