Seasonally both the Humboldt and the Magellanic penguins colonize the northwestern cost of Chiloé. We found a tour operator, that had a parking lot where we could stay overnight and they would keep an eye out for Lance, while we where on the 30-45 minutes long penguin tour.

It is amazing what they do for the tourist – love it

Back at the parking lot we made some picked vegetables and had lunch. In the Jumbo supermarket I found “knækbrød”, another type of bread made from whole rye and without sugar. Perfect for lunch!
The next morning at went for a run on the beach – trying to stay in shape and not gain to much weight
It was time to head back… so we left the beach

That was how we ended up spending the weekend on Isla Chiloé. Seeing penguins have been on our list for a long time, and we would still love to see more. And these ones were really small. Now our next stop is Pumalin National Park.
