Valdes Peninsula & Punta Ninfas
The world-famous Valdes Peninsula Valdes is located in the Atlantic coast of Argentina, south of Buenos Aires. This renowned wildlife destination is a magnificent place to appreciate its impressive geology and diverse wildlife including Southern Right Whales and Orcas, Southern Elephant Seal, South American Sea Lion, Patagonian Hare, Patagonian Hairy Armadillo, Magellanic Penguin and many others. We will have a comprehensive whale-watching programme around Puerto Piramides, including two boat trips, to enjoy the usually magnificent sightings of the Southern Right Whale population, which occur seasonally (July - December) on the surrounding gulfs. Later, we will head towards Punta Ninfas and enjoy the privacy of Estancia El Pedral. This private nature reserve holds a Magellanic penguin colony and provides access to great breeding rookeries of other seabirds and mammals. We will have three nights to enjoy this property and its unique wildlife, while experiencing the hospitality of a typical gaucho estancia.Read More
