The Penguin Tour was the fifty-ninth tour of Mario Kart Tour, which began on December 15, 2021 and ended on December 28, 2021. True to its name, the tour featured the return of various penguin-themed items, as well as introducing Penguin Toadette from New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe as a new power-up driver variant. Its Italian name, Tour Pinguotto, particularly alludes to the recurring Penguin species in the Mario franchise, encountered in this game as course obstacles; however, the Penguin Tour featured no course where such Penguins are found. Additionally, the tour also marked the debut of the second layout of the Vancouver Velocity course, aptly named Vancouver Velocity 2.
This tour continued the Holiday Celebration event that started on the previous tour, which, in addition of keeping the Holiday Challenges, featured better rewards on the Token Shop, which included High-End karts like the Sushi Racer and the Apple Kart and High-End gliders like the Cloud Glider and the Blizzard Balloons, as well as introducing a light-blue-colored variant of Toad (Pit Crew) known as Light-blue Toad (Pit Crew), who was available as a reward for placing high in this tour's ranked cups. This tour featured the Snow Karts Pipe, which contained several karts related to snow and ice, including the new Frost Wing kart.
This tour's Coin Rush course was DS DK Pass, which was reused from the 2019 and 2020 Winter Tours. The menu's background featured the 2010 Winter Olympics cauldron under the aurora borealis as the landmark for this tour, which was reused from the Vancouver Tour.
Starting from this tour, the Starry Great Sail glider is available in regular tour pipes, including the All-Clear Pipe.
