Through the lens: Magdelena Island, Chile

  • Through the lens Magdalena Island

I combined my love of wild landscapes and penguins by visiting Magdelena Island in Chile. Punta Arenas is the place you need to go, then you’re just a 45 minute ferry ride away. The island sits in the Strait of Magellan and is home to thousands of penguins. It’s a great introduction to the deep South of the continent before you reach Tierra del Fuego. Here are my pictures from the day trip, including some penguins that could not help but pose.

I feel like I need to warn you about the boat ride – be prepared for sea sickness. The return journey felt like a washing machine. It’s worth it for penguins though.
