Peninsula Valdes

Peninsular Valdes has a barren charm about it and is one of the best places for viewing wildlife in Argentina.  In short it is a haven for marine life as the ocean around this desert like peninsular is home to the Southern Right Whale, when it visits the coastline to breed and the Orca Whale. 

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN PENINSULA VALDES

WHALE WATCHING

Southern right whales migrate along the Atlantic coastline, reaching Peninsula Valdes to rest and often give birth. Puerto Piramides, a beach dominated by cliffs rich in fossils is the place to embark on any whale watching trip. May to September is the best time to see them

PUNTA TOMBO PENGUINS

Situated on the Atlantic coast, the area becomes a breeding and moulting ground for the Magellanic penguins during the warmer months of September to April. There can be anywhere between 3 and 5 million penguins here at any one time, making it the largest in the world

HORSE RIDING

Exploring this barren peninsula on horse back is a great way to see the wildlife.  You can visit sea lion nesting grounds situated on a flat rocky outcrop, jutting out into the sea as well as Punta Delgada with its old lighthouse where a large quantity of gulls, cormorants and herons can be admired.
