Gentle sea giants, curious Magellanic penguins and cozy elephant seals within your reach. Exciting marine diversity and Argentine charm on the Valdéz peninsula.
The gentle landing at Trelew Airport is the starting point for the unique experience, during which you will experience the impressive marine fauna up close. You start the journey of discovery in Puerto Madryn, where after a city tour in Punta Loma you can watch the first sea lions while relaxing in the sun.
With your rental car you head towards Peninsula Valdéz. After a stop in Puerto Piramides, the only inhabited village on the peninsula, your path continues through the steppe country away from the coast. After a good hour your accommodation in wonderful seclusion. The pretty lighthouse of the Hotel Faro Punta Delgada not only guides you to your stylish hotel, but has also served as a point of reference for shipping for over 100 years. In the middle of the nature reserve of the Pensinsula Valdéz you can experience pure nature with a unique flair.
Right in front of your door, at the foot of the cliffs, cozy elephant seals relax, powerful orcas and whales pay a visit to the island from time to time. In the coming days, listen to the mysterious whale songs and watch the kings of the seas. Fascinating! Soak up the impressions of the wonderful UNESCO wildlife sanctuary while exploring on foot, on horseback, by boat or by car! Numerous bird animals, such as the white Antarctic Comoran, swooping Falkland terns or glowing flamingos, cross your path.
In the afternoon after the drive to the idyllic village of Gaiman, stroll through the streets and enjoy pastries and delicacies in one of the numerous tea rooms. Nearby, in Punta Tombo, the trusting Magellanic penguins nest in a huge colony of over half a million animals! You will come uniquely close to the friendly waddling and the busy chattering of the black and white animals, which you and your family will remember as a wonderful memory on your return flight.
