    • The first part of the hike takes us to the privately owned nature preserve of Ahuenco. A colony of Magellan and Humboldt penguins nests here every year between October and April. Important! To get to the observation hut and see the penguins, it has to be low tide. This changes every day, and sometimes the tides have their own way, and it is impossible to cross the beach.

    • The second part of the hike takes us along the beach of ‘Tongoy’ where once people looked for gold in the little streams and searched for semi-precious stones. The Darwin Fox (Lycalopex fulvipes) roams this area as well as the second smallest deer in the world, the Pudu (Pudu pudu).
