Admire sea elephants and sea lions on this unforgettable excursion.
Travel to the Valdes Peninsula, a nature reserve not far from Puerto Madryn.
A day trip to the nature reserve on the Peninsula Valdez, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, is an unforgettable experience. From September to March, the peninsula is home to both sea elephants and sea lions, lazy animals who spend hours stretched out on the white sand beaches or around the reddish cliffs, their roaring competing with the crashing waves of the ocean.
Additionally, the chilly, crystal blue waters of the Golfo Nuevo are inhabited by one of the most fascinating creatures on earth--the baleen whale. These whales come here between May and December to mate and give birth. Because the water in the gulf is quieter and warmer than in the open sea, the whales repeat this age-old process year after year. If you are lucky, you may spot an Orca, which can be found off the coast in the open sea off the peninsula.
