A long, bumpy, fun ride through wasteland to get there. Deserted except for a small ranger station and visitor's shack - and thousands of penquins. The place to go to see these little guys. Three species - mostly Kings.

a wonderful trip from Stanley but it takes approx. 3 hours, the last 11 miles are off road driving and not for the faint hearted. Fantastic wildlife and the largest king penguin colony in the Falklands
