    Punta Tombo
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Partimos de la Ciudad de Puerto Madryn con dirección sur tomando la Ruta Nacional Nº3 (casi 190km de asfalto) hacia la Reserva Natural de Punta Tombo, pingüinera más importante del continente americano. Los pingüinos arriban anualmente a este lugar para anidar, aparearse, tener sus crías y mutar para luego emprender el viaje de regreso hacia el noreste de Sudamérica y cíclicamente regresar al año siguiente. Punta Tombo es una franja rocosa de 3.5 km de largo por 600 m de ancho que se extiende hacia el mar. Posee playas que presentan un suave declive que aprovechan los pingüinos para rehacer y crear sus nidos. Al llegar abonaremos el ingreso a la reserva e ingresaremos al centro de interpretación donde podremos observar toda la fauna del lugar y aprender lo necesario como para ingresar a la reserva y entender el accionar de los pingüinos. En la salida del centro de interpretación un minibús nos llevara hasta el inicio de los senderos donde comenzara nuestra caminata de unos 1,5 a 2 km aproximadamente. Recorriendo los senderos perfectamente trazados, podemos sorprendernos observando la febril actividad que domina la colonia. De acuerdo a la época se puede observar a algunos pingüinos escavando sus cuevas, peleando por el territorio, desplazándose en busca de sus nidos, apareándose o alimentando sus pichones. A la vez que el continuo rumor de rebuznos -vocalización de los pingüinos adultos que utilizan para alejar a los extraños y atraer a su pareja-domina el ambiente. Los pingüinos conviven con otras aves marinas que han elegido este sitio para nidificar como las gaviotas cocineras grises o australes, las skúas o salteadores, dos especies de cormoranes –el real y el de cuello negro o roquero-, el pato vapor, palomas Antárticas, y varias especies de gaviotines y petreles gigantes. Dada la extensión del área también podemos llegar a observan guanacos, piches, maras, choiques, zorros, cuis y martinetas. Al finalizar el recorrido podemos almorzar en la cafetería de la reserva y luego retomamos el recorrido a Madryn.
