Full description
After your hotel pick up, venture towards the Pacific Coast. You will visit the largest privately-owned alpaca farm in the world where you can interact with these beautiful animals up close. See the entire alpaca wool production process and enjoy a broad selection of exclusive creations and handmade art crafts.

Afterwards, you will continue up the coastline on the Ruta del Pacifico to the town of Cachagua, a stone's throw from Penguin Island. Try to catch a glimpse of penguins by the naked eye or using binoculars. Walk along a beautifully carved pathway to a small cove with gorgeous views of the ocean. Afterward, stop for lunch in the quiet seaside resort town of Zapallar.

Please note that penguin sightings from the short are most common during the summer months of December to February. Between March and November, the penguins tend to move inland to their burrows. Therefore, please be aware that during these months it may not be possible to see the penguins from the shore. There is the option of taking a one -hour private boat ride around the island for closer viewing of the penguins. This is an additional $60.000 Chilean Pesos per group (up to 7 people) and highly recommended anytime during the year, weather permitting.
