Peninsula Valdes – Southern Circuit | Argentina Visión

Peninsula Valdes – Southern Circuit


We depart early in the morning towards the Provincial Wildlife Reserve Peninsula Valdes, UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After a one-hour drive we arrive in Puerto Piramides, where we take a boat tour (optional) to do whale watching of Southern Right Whales (Eubalaena australis) between June and December, and of Southern Sea lions (Otaria flavescens) and cormorants between January and March. There is no navigation in Puerto Piramides during April and May.
Around noon we leave for Punta Delgada to have lunch (not included) at the Lighthouse complex (*ask about minimum charge*), where we have the chance of walking down to the beach to take a closer look of the elephant seals. Then we depart for Punta Cantor to observe the peninsula’s Atlantic coastline, and we reach the initial stretch of the Valdes Inlet (Caleta Valdes). After the observation and interpretation of the coastal geology, we drive back to the Ameghino Isthmus for a tour of the Visitor Centre. Along the way we have good chance of viewing animals such as guanacos, rheas, foxes, cavies, armadillos and skunks, among others.
