Peninsula Valdes

Side Trips from Buenos Aires
Duration: 3 days - 2 nights
  DAY 1

Reception at Trelew airport and private transfer to Las Restingas boutique Hotel

Spend the day observing the vast array of wildlife that Patagonia tours have to offer. This area of important reserves and rookeries is home to guanacos, lesser rheas, Patagonia foxes, hairy armadillos, and Patagonian hares.

  DAY 2

Your guide will meet you at your hotel to visit Puerto PirĂ¡mides, the only urban settlement in the entire peninsula from where expeditions leave to enjoy the whale watching. Every year, during winter and spring season, a great number of Southern Right Whales arrive at the Atlantic coast, mainly at Caleta Valdes sea-coast, Golfo San Jose and Golfo Nuevo, near Peninsula Valdes in the Chubut province.

This is the best time to visit our coasts to meet these giants which placidly arrive at the date.

  DAY 3

Visit to Punta Tombo Reserve, the most important breeding colony of Magellan penguins in the world, on the bank of Rio Chubut. Here a declining population of the species, still numbering over 300,000, returns in early September and stays until the chicks learn to swim before heading north in the spring.

Walking among these remarkable creatures is undoubtedly a memorable highlight of many Patagonia tours. Other species such as kelp gulls, cormorants, giant petrels, dolphin gulls, the Chubut steamer duck, hairy armadillos and Patagonian foxes also inhabit the area.

We strongly suggest a visit to the Egidio Feruglio paleontology museum which houses an extensive collection of dinosaur replicas.

Transfers to Trelew airport to take flight back to Buenos Aires.
